Kindergarten students at Montgomery Avenue Elementary School in West Pittston celebrated their 100th day of school recently.

The students in Mrs. Aguello’s and Mrs. Burdett’s classes sang songs, made crafts and participated in different counting activities. The students were excited about the “Cold Noses Warm Hearts” campaign. The students, along with teachers and aides, set a goal to collect 100 cans of cat and dog food by the 100th day to be donated to the SPCA of Luzerne County.

The class collected nearly 500 food items for the animal shelter, far exceeding their expectations. Students kept track of each can as it came in and helped an important charity.
