“No more pencils no more books”
Yesterday was the last day of the 2015-2016 school year for my students. Today is my last day of work before summer vacation. This is the end of my twenty-ninth year teaching young people in public schools.
Each school year seems to pass more quickly
than the one before. This school year seems to have gone by in a blink.
The end of the school year always brings mixed emotions. Each year, I grow so attached to the students that I teach. It is difficult to say good-bye to them at the end of the school year.
The last days are filled with joy and tradition. At our school, we have a traditional field day. It is called Red and Blue Day. Different grade levels participate in this wonderful event on different days of the last week of school.
It is a tradition, at my school, that all of the teachers line up on the sidewalk to wave good-bye to the students as the buses leave the bus parking lot for the last day of the school year.
While sad to see my students go, I know that they are off to summer adventures.
Summer allows me more unstructured time to pursue time with family, friends, travel, and photography! Happy Summer!
