In spite of the pandemic, Indian Lake Schools are marking a major milestone of in-person learning! 
Indian Lake Elementary School students celebrated the 100th Day of School on Wednesday, February 3rd with a variety of physical and academic activities. 
ILES Co-Principal Molly Hall says 100 days is always worthy of a celebration, but reaching it this year gives her an extra sense of accomplishment. 
"I'm so thankful we have conducted classes on campus during this time. Despite some illness and quarantine situations, we know in-person learning is the best way to educate our students." 
Hall continues,"I'm very proud of the ILES staff for adjusting and adapting to the COVID-19 challenge. We continue to wear our masks and sanitize daily so that we can make it through the rest of the year." 

During the celebrations students got to choose from several fun tasks for 100th Day Bingo that incorporated the number 100 including licking a lolly pop 100 times, running in place for 100 seconds and tossing a beanbag 100 times. They also performed academic tasks including writing numbers to 100, counting 100 beans, and naming patterns to 100. 

First, second and third graders also created bulletin boards with their writing activities detailing 100 reasons they love school at ILES! Several students also created and wrote about what they will look and be like when they reach 100 years of age.

Meantime, many ILES Kindergarten students aged overnight in preparation for the special occasion!
Dozens of kindergarteners dressed up as they might look when they are 100 years old in celebration of their 100th day of school. 
Several make their hair white, wore rollers, carried canes and more. 
Even at their age, they had no trouble coming through the special "100" entrance to the Kindergarten wing! Students also strung together necklaces with 100 beads or bits of cereal, made 100-themed hats and took part in several fun activities to mark the day.
