Wilson Elementary Celebrated 100th Day
With CHS Precussion Section

Wilson Elementary celebrated attending the 100th day of school on Tuesday, January 24th. Each class learned about many things related to the number 100, including looking back 100 years ago to learn how school was the same and different compared to students' school experience today, bringing and counting 100 items each, and discovering how the number 100 affects us in many areas of our lives. To help us celebrate, the percussion section of the Collinsville High School Band, lead by Bruce Roberts, visited Wilson. They shared some music with us and helped us count to 100 by 5s and 10s using the drumbeats as guides. Pictured below:

Band Director Bruce Roberts talks with Jessica Miller from Wilson and Zac Pasco from the high school about different instruments in the band and the number 100.

Taylor Sears, D. J. Conte, Mitchell Reynolds, Liz Means, Director Bruce Roberts, and Chance Jones share their musical knowledge and talents with students at Wilson Elementary.
