Celebrating 100 Day


Every year, we celebrate the 100th day of school! This year is a little different because we celebrated the fact we’ve been able to grow our brains together in person for 100 days! 

We celebrated the 100th day of school for the 2020-2021 school year on January 29th! 

Kindergarteners made their special 100th day of school capes.  The capes had 100 objects on it ranging from stickers to baseball cards. One cape even had 100 packages of fruit snacks! 

In the morning, the kindergarteners counted by tens completing a dot-to-dot of Zero the Hero! Throughout the day, the kindergarteners joined the Count to 100 Club! They worked on writing numbers to one hundred and did a 100 dot project!

The Kindergarten classes sang the Day 100 song, practiced writing and counting from 1 to 100, wrote about what we would do if we had 100 dollars and finger painted 100 dots!  The students really enjoyed their pizza and cookie party which is a tradition here at ASA!

Rejoice in hope, be patient in tribulation, be constant in prayer (Romans 12:12)

A Message from the Principals

Day 100 is always a fun celebration at All Saints Academy, especially for our younger students.  Projects on display throughout the school, such as capes, jars, and models, not only signify we’ve been in school for 100 days, but also the tremendous growth that has taken place thus far.  Think about your child back in August. Think about what they knew (or didn’t know). If you are like us, you are probably asking yourself how they got so smart and so old so fast. 

Day 100 this year signifies so much more in the midst of the pandemic. What we are celebrating today is something that is nothing short of a miracle. As Nelson Mandela reminds us, “It always seems impossible until it is done.”  In some ways, reaching day 100 seemed impossible on day 1. Maybe it even seemed impossible on day 50.  But here we are. Day 100. And for the first time since the beginning of October, All Saints Academy has exactly zero staff members or students in quarantine or isolation (this has been the case since Tuesday!).

We have reached these milestones because of our belief that we are one. Parents, students, and staff members have sacrificed so much to allow for learning to happen effectively and face to face.  We have said “no” to social gatherings and other fun events, we have continued to wear our masks (as annoying as they are), and we have worn skin off our hands from washing and sanitizing tirelessly, all out of the love and care for our community.  

Please celebrate with your children this weekend in some way. They deserve it. They’ve persevered through so much.  Yet at the same time, we know we aren’t quite done. If we want to make the next 80 days as fruitful as the first 100, we will need to keep our guard up and continue to press on.  As challenging as this pandemic may continue to be, we believe all things are possible through Christ. Thank you for your partnership in making these first 100 days a success. We look forward to finishing this school year with you together!
