100 Days make for a fun 100 years at Willow School

  Mateo Garcia as he expects
  he might look when he is 
  100 years old.

Friday, Feb. 10, was the 100th day of school for student

Homewood District 153.

The kindergarteners at Willow School found a fun way to celebrate by pretending to be people 100 years from now. They came as grandmas and grandpas, completing their outfits with silver-haired wigs, mustaches, beads and bow ties.

And they counted to 100!

  students, from left, Gabriel Cohn, Dominic Hernandez,

  to be a century old to mark the 100th day of school
  on Feb. 10.
