Watauga County Schools celebrates 100th day

Thursday, January 26 marked the 100th day of classes for students in Watauga County Schools. Around the district, Kindergarteners to second-graders and their classrooms were decorated in celebration. Students assembled 100-piece puzzles, stacked 100 cups, dressed as 100-year-olds and enjoyed 100 snacks (in manageable sets of 10.)

In the last 100 days of operation, Watauga County Schools has offered 750 hours of instruction, served more than 400,000 lunches and traveled 278,900 by bus, enough distance to lap the earth 11 times.
