A favorite day at McFall is 100 Day celebrating the 100th day of school!
Students celebrated in grand style with a special visit from Zero the Hero! He led the students and staff in counting to 100 while doing some morning moves. One hundred glittery stickers, colorful cotton balls, straws, and gumballs decorated posters created by students to show 100 items. Students also used jewels, hearts, stickers and straws to decorate crowns to wear for the day and many teachers planned special classroom events.
