100 Days Smarter

On Feb. 8, the hallways and classrooms at Downing looked more like a senior citizen center than an elementary school as the students celebrated their 100th day of school by dressing (and acting) as if they were 100 years old.

The kindergarten through second graders advanced over nine decades in a day as they arrived at class with grayed hair, rollers and facial hair and dressed in classic fashion with hats, horn-rimmed glasses, pearls, suspenders and bowties. Many of our young old-timers walked hunched over with canes in hand and some were even equipped with first alert pendants, in case of emergency.

Our 100th Day of School celebration wasn’t all about dress up. The students showed they are “100 days smarter” by participating in various “100-themed” lessons and activities throughout the day, including math and counting, history and art.
