Page Academy students are officially past the 100-day mark in the school calendar and they could not be more excited. To celebrate the occasion the Hancock Park Campus put together a fun day of 100 themed activities for the students. The students not only had an amazing time but also were able to boost their creativity in the process.
On Monday, January 22, the students all arrived on campus ready to celebrate in their themed costumes. Since it was the 100th day of school, the students dressed up as if they were 100 years old! The students really put a lot of effort into these amazing costumes, and the results could not be more adorable. Not only were their costumes hilarious, the students were also amazing actors, walking around with canes and fully assuming the roles of 100-year-old people.
Throughout the school day, various other 100 themed activities were planned for the students to enjoy. One of these activities was a writing game where the students wrote a bucket list for all of the things they wanted to do before they turned 100. Their lists included different people they want to meet, places they want to go, and things they want to make sure they do before they grow old.
The students also spent a lot of the day working on craft projects that went with the 100 theme as well. Some students made 100th Day monster drawings while others worked on building a bridge made with 100 Popsicle sticks.
The 100th Day of School was a very eventful and exciting day for all members of the Hancock Park campus community. The students had an amazing time partaking in the event, and parents and teachers all enjoyed watching the student’s creativity churn. Our students and campus are now 100 days smarter, wiser, and older! Happy 100th day of school Page Academy, we are already looking forward to the adventures next year’s festivities will bring.
I love summer! That final graduation trophy is handed out at our commencement ceremony, the junior kindergarten students receive their first Page Academy pins, and summertime is finally here! Students are covered in sunscreen and chlorine during that first week, the pool is in full use, and the students are all smiles in their free dress attire.
During Summer, many of us allow our kids to sleep in that extra 30-minutes in the morning, and stay up an equal amount of time past their bedtime. Some of us are extra lax on electronics as a new Minecraft world is created and Poke balls are of extreme importance to our kids of summer. Before you know it, the routine is completely off. Thirty-minutes of sleeping in quickly becomes 60-minutes, and staying up to watch the last part the newly released Boss Baby becomes the norm. Oh how we parents long for the days of school to be back.
Finally!! It's here!!! Hooray!!! Up early for school with a healthy breakfast in our students stomachs, and early to bed for the next day to begin. Lockers are filled with the latest gadgets and new backpacks fill the halls. Some students have the same teachers they had last year, while others are learning where to turn in classwork in their new room, but nonetheless, it is an exciting time for our students.
It is a new year of possibilities!! A year for us to see amazing growth in our students. Our transitional kindergarten and kindergarten students will begin reading and spelling tests. Our first and second graders will gain great growth in reading comprehension, while our third graders are mastering multiplication tables! Our fourth graders will come home with a voluminous amount of California history information while our fifth graders will master the US capitals. And our middle schoolers...oh our how our middle schoolers will mystify us with their knowledge of science and math, all while they are becoming young adolescents reading young adult novels and understanding their deep meanings!
It is a year of possibilities!! And before I know it, it will be mid-June 2018, and I will be back to saying, "I LOVE SUMMER!!!"
