100th Day of School

To celebrate the 100th Day of School today Mrs. Snyder's students completed a 100th Day Spaghetti Tower STEM Challenge. Mrs. Knowlton and Mrs. Hetu had a great day with their students dressing like they are 100 years old! Mrs. White's class created 100 Popcorn fractions, a virtual tour of what the world looked like 100 years ago, writing about our 100-year-old selves, and a STEM challenge using 100 spaghetti sticks and marshmallows to create tall towers.
