School The Pirate
The 100th Day of school was celebrated last week on February 19 at the Upper Elementary and the Early Learning Center. Because of the realities of mid-winter and mid-holiday slumps, teachers decided to find creative ways to lift spirits and inspire students to greatness for the rest of the year. It’s a special time in a child’s memory, even those who have made it to their senior year.
"I always looked forward to the hundredth day of school. I always made it a big event and will remember it always. It's one of my best and favorite memories as a kindergartner,” senior Rachel Schmolze said.
In Locust Grove, the 100th day of school has been celebrated by students for around seventeen years. The activities they do that day vary and are all about the number 100. The activities seen this year were: doing 100 jumping jacks; dressing up like they were 100 years old; making 100 day hats and glasses; making 100 item trail mix; making necklaces with 100 fruit loops; bringing in 100 of their favorite things; and reading books about the hundredth day. Students really enjoy this unexpected holiday.
"My favorite part was getting to dress up like I was 100 years old, doing crafts of the hundredth day, and getting to play with my friends,” kindergartener Jaci Tyner said.
Durell Bevilaqua's third grade class celebrated the day by either bringing 100 things to share or by pinning one hundred things to their shirts.
"I think it feels good to be 100 days smarter,” third grader Emily Bailey said. So, as students look forward to the last day of school, they can be encouraged that at least they are now past the half-way mark to completion. Have a happy 100!
LOCUST GROVE, OK — The Locust Grove girls opened up a 14-point lead and held off No. 4 Vinita, 52-46, at Pirate Arena Friday to improve to 4-0.
“It means a lot to us coaches, I can tell you that for sure, but it means a lot to the kids. They’ve earned it, they’ve worked really hard, and it’s kind of become the expectation now that we can win and play with anybody,” LG head coach Justin Brown said about upsetting Vinita.
