100th Day

Recently, a unique celebration took place at Matunuck Elementary School. This was not just any usual day, but the 100th day of the school year, marked by laughter, creativity, learning, and giving, all wrapped up in one unforgettable event.

Students arrived at school dressed up as old men and women, bringing a playful twist on aging to the day's events. The hallways were filled with laughter as they hobbled around with canes and walkers, their faces adorned with glasses and makeup to enhance their 'old' appearances.

The special day's theme was centered around the number 100, a number boasting its own significance in various contexts. To further explore this, the students engaged in a variety of activities where 100 was the star. Each activity underlined the importance of this number. These exercises promoted learning and added an extra layer of significance to the day.

Among the highlights was an incredible domino display in the hallway, created entirely out of cereal boxes. The fall of the dominoes was not just a spectacle to watch but a testament to the students' hard work leading up to the 100th day.

But the day was about more than just fun, games, and learning. It also encompassed a valuable lesson about giving back to the community. After the domino display, all the cereal boxes were collected and donated to the Jonnycake Center in Wakefield. This act of charity added a meaningful dimension to the day's events, teaching our students about the importance of community service and empathy.

From the laughter-filled halls to the domino display, and the act of giving, the 100th day at Matunuck Elementary School was indeed a day to remember. It captured the essence of education at its finest, blending learning with fun and charity, leaving an indelible mark on the hearts of all those who were part of it.
