Schuylerville Elementary School students celebrated 100 days of school on Thursday, Feb. 16 by giving back to the community. Students in the Kindness and Compassion (KC) club challenged each elementary classroom to bring in 100 food items to donate to the Schuylerville Area Food and Emergency Relief (SAFER). Club members reminded their classmates about the challenge by hanging posters around the school and providing daily reminders on the announcements with their “we can, we will” chant. The club collected 3,650 items.
“We couldn’t be prouder of our students for doing such an amazing job,” teacher Judy Greene said. “The generosity of our students, teachers and staff far exceeded our expectations.”
Elementary school students also took part in other fun classroom activities to celebrate 100 days of school.
