As Bellmore students entered Reinhard on Feb. 12, they were welcomed with balloons and congratulatory remarks by faculty and staff for having fulfilled the first 100 days of school. Dressed as 100-year-olds, the students spent their day strengthening their English language arts and mathematics skills with various activities relating to the occasion. Teachers also took their classes for a walk around the school to find 100 site words planted throughout the hallways.

“The students have really met the challenges of becoming Bellmore Rising Stars over the last 100 days of school,” said Principal Patricia Castine.   

In the afternoon, the students gathered in the school auditorium to celebrate the day. They counted as physical education teachers Elia Deblasio and Ari Bisk passed a basketball back and forth 100 times. They danced to a number of 100 Days of School songs, and counted to 100 by ones, fives, 10s and 20s to reinforce their knowledge and counting expertise. At the end of the assembly, the students joined together in singing the Bellmore Rising Star song.
