OGDEN -- Lots of moaning and groaning was going on Friday in the hallways at Polk Elementary School.
Several students were complaining about their backs, knees, hips and feet. Others said they couldn't see well, and a few said they could use a nap.
The student body celebrated the 100th day of the school year with some fun activities.
"We wanted to celebrate 100 days in school, so we thought it would be fun to do something a little bit different," said first-grade teacher Claire Maciejewski. "We told the students they could come to school today dressed like a 100-year-old person."
"I'm 100 years old today," said first-grader Christopher Morgan. "My back hurts, and my thumb hurts, and I can't walk very fast."
Wearing an old hat, glasses and two pairs of pants, Christopher leaned over on his cane and said 100 was "really, really, really old."
Classmate Aiden Nelson said she felt the same way.
"When you're 100 years old, you have a bad back," she said. "And you have a lot of aches and pains everywhere. That's because, when you were young, you used up all those bones and now they all hurt."
Some students sprayed their hair gray and drew crow's feet on their faces. Others brought in a variety of canes, some of which were borrowed from their grandparents, while others were made out of cardboard, wood and golf clubs. One student rolled in using a wheelchair.
"My grandpa is 97, so he's almost there," said Alyssa Wangsgard. "And he still shovels."
The students participated in a variety of activities, including drawing a picture of how they look today compared to another picture of how they will look when they turn 100.
"There will be a lot of wrinkles," said first-grader Reese Martinez.
Other activities included counting to 100 and coloring 100 items. Each student also brought in 100 pieces of candy to share with classmates.
Oliver Myers said he enjoyed pretending to be 100 and hopes he'll reach the century mark one day.
"It would be awesome. I'll get to lie around while my family works for me."
