The end of the school year is always fast, furious, and fun.
Emotions run wild, both with children and teachers.
The week started with visits to every child’s house.
How cool is that, to have your teacher come to your house.
We painted rocks and read a story.
We laughed, cried, told “Remember when…” stories
from school, and shared gifts.
Landon gave me an Eric Carle thank you book.
Charlotte painted a beautiful picture with a note,
“Dear Jennie, I love when you read me books.
And I love drawing with you.
I miss eating yogurt at lunch with you.
We had a final Zoom with children and families.
They wanted teachers to open a gift from the Aqua Room.
Oh, my! A yearbook.
You may remember that rainbow over the tree photo.
The final event was a car parade.
Teachers waved pom-poms and blew bubbles
as families drove by.
Omar from the Groton Police Department
led the parade. He is wonderful!
Families had their cars all decked out, cheering and honking.
Staff had a final, farewell lunch together
before touring the renovation at the school.
This will be my classroom!
We hope to move back in at the end of the calendar year.
It was quite a busy week. I may shed a few tears later today.
I will definitely smile as I look through photos.
Next year is right around the corner.
I have the BEST new idea already in the works!
