First-graders at Copeland Manor School dressed a little differently Tuesday as they wore the number 100 on hats, glasses, while some used 100 items to decorate their socks.
The Libertyville school celebrated 100 days of school with various activities based on the century theme.
Even the teachers got into the spirit by surprising students dressed as 100-year-olds.
"It's a very fun day," first grade teacher Ann Marie Grote said while wearing a gray wig, robe, and slippers. "The kids were shocked to see the teachers dressed as old ladies."
Teacher Patti Schroetter's class had students guessing how many things they could do in 100 seconds, such as writing their names and jumping jacks.
"I wrote my name 26 times in 100 seconds," first-grader Maddy Cortesi said, "and I made it past 100 jumping jacks. It was really tiring."
The four first grade classes also collected 189 pairs of socks that will be donated to PADS homeless shelters.
