GREENFIELD — Looking at her calendar Tuesday afternoon, Trina Griesmeyer couldn’t even remember when the 100th day of school was supposed to be.
With winter weather forcing school officials to cancel a week’s worth of classes since Christmas, a number of activities have understandably been shifted. But the first-grade teacher and her students at Weston Elementary School were finally able to celebrate the milestone day on Wednesday, which, as far as most could agree, really was day 100.
“This is our first regular day in I don’t know how long,” joked Griesmeyer, ticking off the week’s cancelations and two-hour delays.
Each year, planning class parties and activities around the number 100 provides a way for elementary-school teachers to reinvigorate students who might have found themselves in a seasonal slump.
