To kick off 100th anniversary celebrations for the Merrick School District, teachers treated students to a presentation about “The Velveteen Rabbit,” a book written in 1922, the same year the district was founded.
Students and staff across the district were encouraged to dress like they were 100 years old or in 1920s era garb.
Birch teachers incorporated various math, literacy and history lessons about the last century.
At Chatterton, preK and kindergarten students paraded around the building to cheering peers. Fifth graders celebrated their 1,000th day of school with reading, writing and math activities.
At Lakeside, first graders strutted the catwalk for a fashion show. They adorned T-shirts with 100 items on them to signify the 100th day of school.
