First Graders Celebrate 100th Day at Exeter-Milligan

The Exeter-Milligan first grade class posed with their 100th day shirts and the special projects that they made.  They are pictured from left to right: Joleen Vossler, Kierra Papik, Jayden Capek, Aidan Vavra, Emma Rose, Carter Milton, Mikey Bartu, Emma Meyer, Mrs. Sharon Lott, Liberty Johnson and Ayla Kahler.

Exeter-Milligan elementary students celebrated being 100 days smarter on Friday, January 24th.  The kindergarten and first grade classrooms filled their day with special one hundred counting activities to commemorate the 100th day of school.

The first grade class started many of their 100th day projects long before the celebration on Friday.  They drew life size pictures of Exeter-Milligan faculty and staff members as they pictured them at the age of 100. 

Students were encouraged to dress up like 100 year olds for the day sporting canes, glasses and gray hair.  In class they made special unique t-shirts with the representation of 100 items on them.  

Each first grader brought a special project that they created at home which involved creating a display of 100 items.  There were rose petals, sequins, buttons a timberwolf made from q-tips, a student’s name spelled in 100 lights along with Legos and pasta.

The first graders also made a giant cookie that 100 candies mixed in and played lots of games using their counting skills throughout the day.

At the end of the day the second graders joined the kindergarten and first graders and they all popped 100 balloons in the hallway.

Aidan Vavra models the back of his short which tells us that he is 100 days smarter!

 It's time to pop the balloons.  Above first grader Kierra Papik gets the job done by sitting on the balloon as Andrew Vavra does below.  However, Andrew had to enlist the help of his little brother Aidan.
