|Chloe Hung and Patrick Gonzalez show off their 100th Day posters|
100 chocolate chips
100 Goldfish crackers
100 Pokémon figures
Those were just some of the items that kindergarteners brought in last week to celebrate all things 100 in recognition of the 100th day of school. Teachers Tracy Church and Lisa Lamendola used the school year milestone as an opportunity to reinforce the math and counting skills that the students have been learning throughout the year.
Students worked at home with their parents to create posters with 100 items which were brought in and displayed. In class the students completed a variety of activities: They made 100th day hats; counted to 100 by ones, fives, and tens; wrote all numbers to 100; and read stories about the 100th day including "The Night Before the 100th Day" by Natasha Wing.
The students also wrote what they wanted if they could have 100 of anything. Puppies, cookies, chocolates, and dollar bills were among the answers.
STEAM Summer Program Is Back
This July, students can once again explore science, technology, engineering, art, and math (STEAM) in Innovation Station, Mount Olive School District's popular summer camp.
Innovation Station is an opportunity for students to nurture their scientific creativity and curiosity, and learn real-world applications of scientific concepts. It provides hands-on learning experiences and this year includes new courses, updated favorites, and a new robotics class exclusively for incoming ninth-graders.
The program runs for two weeks, July 17–July 28, and will be held at Mount Olive High School from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. daily. Students may attend either one or both weeks. Lunch and free transportation to students in Mount Olive will be provided. The cost is $250 per week.
Students outside the school district may attend but must provide their own transportation.
Registration ends on June 1.
