Earlier this year, we discussed ideas for having an 100th day celebration.
Go to the ArtsEdNet search engine and search the archives for 100th day. It
might give you more ideas.

There's so much you can do to integrate "25" into any subject matter. With
the millennium upon us, it's a great time for a time capsule. Have students
do a writing assignment about what 25 things they would include in a time
capsule to be opened in 25 years. Then, do it! Have students research what
was going on in the world in 1974 and let students dress the part for a
school wide celebration complete of the time and music of the time. For
yearbooks, have teachers donate pictures of themselves in 1974 (some will be
baby pictures and some will be old yearbook pictures from when they were
teaching). We did something like this last year and everyone loved it-
especially the kids.
