100 Days of Fun & Formation

What does 100 days of school at St. Al’s look like? Our littlest Saints have definitely “aged” the most. 😆 For other classes, it was 100 M&M’s that were shared as a special treat and 100 flowers artfully arranged on a poster. Some classes spent the day engrossed in SETM activities breaking down number combinations while building math skills. It was also a day where the learning was as steady as day 99 and will be on day 101. No matter what day it is, we are so happy to be a part of our students’ lives! #100thdayofschool #calledtobeaSAINT
