LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — Monday was the 100th day of school at Wyandotte Elementary, and students and staff celebrated by dressing as 100-year-olds.
Students from kindergarten through fifth grade were encouraged to dress up and participate in the festivities.
The event started out as a celebration for the kindergarten classes, but this year it has spread to the whole school.
Kindergarteners had several 100-themed activities and snacks throughout the day.
Teacher Shonda Royal said this is a day they look forward to all year.
"It's just one day that we get to dress up like what we think we will look like when we are 100 years old. We write about what we think we will do when we are 100 years old and we just celebrate because we are 100 days smarter," said Royal.
Teachers also said the 100th day celebration is one of the best days of the year, next to pirate day.
