Pennies for the 100th Day of School

We will celebrate the 100th Day of School next week!

As part of our 100th Day Celebration, it has become our tradition to ask children to bring 100 pennies, which we donate to a charity or organization in need.  This year we will collect Pennies for the Yarmouth Community Food Pantry.  A former Rowe student, Jared Conant, plans to celebrate his 13th birthday by collecting food and donations for the Food Pantry.  His goal is to make a difference in the lives of other children by raising enough food and money to feed nearly 100 local families who are struggling with food insecurity.

You are invited to count out 100 pennies (or their equivalent in other coins) at home to bring in a baggie to his or her teacher.  As a classroom, and then as a school, we will count the pennies, which will be collected at our Community Meeting on the 100th day. Please send your pennies no later than Tuesday, February 14 so that they arrive in time for our 100th Day.

Thank you for your help in supporting the Food Pantry, and in celebrating our 100th Day of School!

The 100th Day of School

The 100th day of school is next Wednesday We'd like to celebrate the day with a variety of activities that involve the number 100. Please help us to prepare for this big day. 

Your first grader will need to find 100 items from home to bring to school.  Children could use 100 buttons, 100 toothpicks, 100 stickers, 100 words, 100 cards, 100 stamps...The possibilities are limited only by the imagination!

During our math period, we'll pass out colored paper for our students to use as a base to organize their collections into 10 rows of 10.  Then we'll walk around the room to check out the many wonderful and creative ways to represent 100.  Who knows?  We might even ask another class to come in for a viewing!

Please send in your child's collection early next week!
