Three Lakes and Sugar Camp students enjoy a fun-filled Friday
THREE LAKES - Students usually can't wait for the bell to ring on Friday afternoons. But Three Lakes and Sugar Camp students wouldn't mind if this Friday lasted a little longer.

Melinda Gohl's 4K class is usually filled with 4- and 5-year-olds. But today they're dressed up as a much older generation.

Her class is celebrating the 100th day of school.

"The kids have been looking forward to this for so long," said Gohl."We count down every day we count up to 100. It's just a really fun day to know that we made it to 100 days and we're 100 days smarter here at school."

All day students have been doing activities centered around the number 100--like making 100 Froot Loop necklaces--and even some physical activity. 

"They're going to do 100 jumping jacks later for our brain break," said Gohl.

Gohl used this day to incorporate math and challenged students to count to 100. Parents even got involved in helping to make costumes.

"Ms. Gohl didn't know I was wearing this and she [couldn't recognize me]," said 4-year-old Claira Canada, who was dressed as a 100-year-old grandma. 

These 100-year-old students weren't the only ones celebrating a milestone on Friday. Three Lakes and Sugar Camp students got to snowshoe and ski for the first time during recess.

"It's really fun because it's an opportunity we never had, and now we get the chance to try it out," said 8-year-old Ian Lamon. 

This was an experience the teachers also looked forward to.

"It's fun to get them out of the classroom and outside for a little bit," said third-grade teacher Ali Pichowski.
