Pre-schoolers celebrate 100 days of school at Rome Catholic

By WKTV News

ROME, N.Y. (WKTV) - Monday marked the 100th day of the academic calendar for Rome Catholic School, which meant a fun-filled slate of activities for pre-schoolers there, who celebrated their very first 100 days of school.

Ms. Zawatski's pre-school class Monday morning was one of just many classes that celebrated the 100th day, and students filed in to class to find their room filled with balloons.

Each student brought in a zip lock bag filled with 100 items they brought from home - a task they were aided in by parents, who helped them count in groups of ten.

Leading up to the celebration, the class has also been recycling plastic milk jugs throughout the first 100 days of school. They've created an igloo out of 370 jugs that is large enough to fit the entire class.

The igloo will be taken apart at the end of the year, and all of those milk jugs will be recycled.

School is in session for roughly 180 days in most districts, which means less than half of the school year remains.
