The parents of my students surprised me with a good-bye party at the end of the year. Here they presented me with a card and gift. Mr. Janett, the elementary principal, is also pictured.
A student took this picture of all the parents who attended my good-bye party. Many took time off work to be there. They brought in a great spread of party food and played a video that one mom created with pictures from the entire school year. That was really fun to watch together!
I've been joking with my students that they're moving on to 6th grade, but I'm moving back to 4th! Celebrating their good progress and enjoying good memories together is an important part of closing out the school year.
