Kindergartners at The Learning Center, formerly Surrey Child Care Center, celebrated their 100th day of school Feb 4.

"We have a hundred things to do today and had a two-hour delay," said teacher Peggy Potter.

Each of the 20 students in her all-day kindergarten class prepared a project at home that featured 100 items, including Carly Pitsnogle's pretend birthday cake with 100 candles, the necklaces Joey Micco made for each classmate out of 100 pieces of fruit ring cereal and Darrin Eichelberger's tree made out of 100 beans and paint.

The class project was for each student to bring in five cans of food - a total of 100 cans - to be donated to the Williamsport Food Bank.

Every activity for the day, such as reading, math and even snack time focused on the number 100. Students made a 100 Day snack that included 10 pieces of 10 food items, like marshmallows, raisins and cereal.
