Calhoun Celebrates 125th Day of School

On Thursday, April 21, Calhoun celebrated its 125th Day of School during its 125th year. The community marked the occasion in a number of creative ways. Here are a few of the highlights:

  • Each class at 74th Street made 125-oriented projects – including necklaces made of 125 beads and papier mâché bowls with 125 dots – that were displayed in a pop-up museum for parents and students to visit on Thursday morning.
  • LS-E students built a colorful block structure made of 125 cubed units, wrote stories with 125 words and studied Calhoun's 125-year history.
  • Fifth graders wrote on notecards 125 things they've collectively learned at Calhoun.
  • The Middle School Taking Action on Climate Change elective held a fundraiser for the International Rescue Committee to benefit Ukraine. Their goal was to raise at least $125 and they ended up raising $250.
  • The Students Teaching Students elective did a fundraiser for endangered species; they met their goal of raising $125.
  • The Upper School Winds & Brass ensembles joined in by playing "The Entertainer" and "The Easy Winners" by Scott Joplin, who was in his prime 125 years ago.
