The end of the school year is very near (9 days, okay 8.5 days left). I can't believe the year is almost over it seems like just yesterday that the class was just coming together for the first time in August. Yet it is real. The end is coming. The yearbook deadlines came and went. The books have been
delivered and are nearly all sold. The carnival was planned and executed. Report cards have been written and the last of the lesson plans have been written. The writing is on the wall. Summer is coming. It is bittersweet. I can't wait for the summer break and the opportunity to recharge my batteries, find new ideas, and create a plan for the upcoming years. On the other hand, I move a little slower through the days in the hope of making our time last just a bit more. I will be an emotional mess on the last day of school. I always am. But it is time. It is time for good-byes and time for the hope of the new class to come.
How do you feel about the end of the year? Excited? Depressed? A little of both? Please share your thoughts in the comments. I would love to hear how you handle the end of the year.
