Celebrating 100 Days of Learning

Tuesday, February 6th marked the 100th Day of School at Oak Lawn-Hometown School District 123 and elementary schools celebrated the occasion with games, scavenger hunts, and dressing up like 100-year-olds. 

For many elementary schools in the country, the winter months seem to drag, so the 100th day of school is a perfect time to celebrate students’ progress in between the excitement of the holiday season and the wait for spring break. It’s also a great moment to recognize that we're more than halfway through the school year.

Many students, teachers, and principals dressed up in wigs, gowns, and accessories to look like 100 year-olds. At Covington and Hannum, pictures of their mascots were hidden around the school for students to find and place on a poster.

Each of the schools also included the number "100" in their classrooms with games and activities such as art projects or taking turns rolling a die and coloring until someone reached the 100th square. 

By taking a moment to celebrate and reflect on the accomplishments over the last 100 days, students are motivated to continue their learning through the rest of the year.
