Students at Del Rio Elementary School watched hundreds of colorful balloons float skyward on Wednesday, Feb. 27, as they celebrated the 100th day of school and Del Rio's 30th birthday.
"This is something that we used to do every year at Del Rio when I went to school here," said Natalie Latham, PTO president.
Latham and her crew filled 600 balloons, one per student, and then cut and attached strings and postcards to each balloon with a message from each student. The messages included what students said they love about Del Rio Elementary School and instructions to add the location where the card was found and send it back to Del Rio.
"This is amazing. This is a 100-day celebration with 44 days of school left in this school year," said Principal Susan Clark.
