100 and 101 Day Celebrations at FPS
Farragut Primary School’s second-grade classes celebrated a school-year milestone Wednesday, Jan 26, as it celebrated 101 Days of School.
Meanwhile, FPS kindergartners and first-graders celebrated 100 Days of School Tuesday, Jan. 26.
“It’s just a day of celebration to say we’ve made 101 days, learning so much information and friends that they’ve made,” second-grade teacher
Sabrena Crawford said. “We got together and did all kinds of fun activities that celebrate some of the skills that we’ve learned.”
All FPS second-graders had an opportunity to dress like a character from the novel and movie, “101 Dalmations.”
“Some dressed like a puppy, some dressed like Cruella de Vil,” she said. “We even have a couple dogknappers in the hallway today.”
At the same time, students took part in STEM activities and “the final part is we get to watch ‘101 Dalmations,’ the original movie,” Crawford said.
Students did exercises that culminated in 101, attempted to stack 100 cups and made pup parachutes.
“Every one of the students (about 340) participated,” she said, noting FPS kindergarten and first-graders also celebrated 100 Days of School Jan. 25.
“They did different activities,” Crawford said. “A lot of them dressed like 100-year-olds … dressed in outfits that had 100 items, like 100 dots. I saw a kid that had 100 Band-Aids on his shirt.”
