School was over for the year yesterday, and the new year starts a week from Monday. Many of the students in my classroom are going to kindergarten in the fall, so the last day of school featured a graduation ceremony, complete with recognitions, diplomas and special awards for all. The parents (and sometimes the complete families) of the graduates were in attendance, video cameras and still cameras working overtime. After the ceremony there was a short reception, then everyone went their separate ways.
However, I have no doubt the fresh air and sunshine I'll get when I'm not sitting in front of my computer screen will be good for me. See you next week!
