The students at Grace Lutheran School celebrated the 100th day of school Jan. 29. The lower-grade students each brought 100 items to count and sort. Additionally, they each brought a creation containing 100 pieces of something. Building materials varied from Rollo candies to mini marshmallows to pennies to Legos to google eyes. Students constructed two 100-piece puzzles, did 100 math facts, read Psalm 100, did various physical feats for 100 seconds, sang the "100 Day" song and put together a trail mix of 100 pieces of food. The kindergartners also made hats of 100 stickers and necklaces with 100 Fruit-Loops.
On day 101, the school spelling bee was held. Congratulations to Kenny Werth, who will represent the school at the state bee in Anchorage in April. Kenny won by spelling the word alligator correctly.
On Friday afternoon, the fourth- through sixth-graders enjoyed a field trip to the FAA Flight Service Center in Kenai, as well as the Kenai Airport Tower, to hear about how the weather topics they have been learning in science relate to aviation, especially in Alaska.
Grace Lutheran School is beginning to look forward to next year. Anyone interested in more information regarding the preschool or kindergarten through eighth-grade school should call Dennis Leckwee at 283-9551 or 283-7888.
