Mr. Auburn Wilson and his 5th grade classes marked the 100th day of school with festivities to honor teachers, staff, and administration at LCHS.
Prior to the 100th day of school, Mr. Wilson's classes used differentiated classroom writing strategies (e.g. "Chalk Talk" and "Quick Writes") to develop about 200 stories expressing appreciation for teachers, staff, and administrators. Upon completing the stories, students used them to create the "100th Day Wall of Fame" now on display in the hallway of the 4th-6th grade building. They also delivered copies of the stories to the appropriate faculty and staff members.
On the 100th day of school (Wednesday, January 23), Mr. Wilson invited faculty and staff to his classroom for a special celebration and true "red carpet" treatment. Visiting faculty and staff members were greeted at the door, escorted inside over a red "carpet", presented with a fresh Krispy Kreme donut, and crowned with a Krispy Kreme hat. The students successfully created a celebratory atmosphere, with music, cheering and applause. Faculty and staff posed with their hats and donuts for a photo, and everyone had a wonderful time.
Mr. Wilson says, "I appreciate the willingness of our local (Florence) Krispy Kreme store to become a partner in this celebration by providing approximately 300 donuts, hats, balloons, and pencils as a way to demonstrate their appreciation to the LCHS faculty, staff, and entire 5th grade class for a job well done!" Krispy Kreme also provided information about their reading program and "Donuts for A's" report card promotion.
Mr. Wilson also commends his 5th graders: "I want to also give special recognition to the entire 5th grade class for their wonderful efforts in this project. I am very proud of their hard work and creativity. The students really came through and produced good quality materials that will be cherished and appreciated by many people for a long time to come."
Thank you, Mr. Wilson, all 5th graders, and Krispy Kreme.
