Pre-kindergarteners at Pocantico Hills School donned their wigs, spectacles, pearls, flat caps and pearls Feb. 18 to celebrate the 100th day of the academic year. The youngsters dressed as “centenarians” for the occasion, leaning on their canes and pretending to have achy joints. One student had a blow-up plastic cane.
Students in other early grades also marked the special day. For example, first-graders had to complete a “mission” to save “Zero the Hero” so Feb. 18 could officially be the 100th day. They found that 99 was playing tricks and were able to recover the zero after an “investigation.”
