The Aurelia Community School District TK - 4th grade students and their teachers celebrated their 100th day of school this year on Monday, February 1.
The date for the celebration "kept eluding" Principal Ann Sandine, in her words, as she was trying to plan the event, due to students missing a few days with the recent winter weather.
