Last Day of School Year
“I call my students ‘my kids’ because in our year together, they aren’t just kids on my class list, they become a part of my heart.”
Last year, when school campuses were closed due to the pandemic, we had to get creative and online about year-end celebrations- to recognize students' accomplishments and give them a sense of closure.
This year, things seem little closer to "normal" than last year. This year it seems like there’s a lot to celebrate and a lot to leave behind. Our time is important. The kids that we teach are precious to us, and they need to know that our time together was worth it. So we don’t just let the year end: We Celebrate learning celebrate the moments we’ve had, and savor the time we have left together.
At the end of the race, we like to hear cheers. Really, the end of every school year should be climactic. It should be exciting. So, as teachers, we have to be very careful not to let the bell ring and have kids wondering what just happened. The end of the school year should be a time of review, reflection, and celebration. Today 8th March was the last day of the school year and International Women’s Day so we had twin celebrations. The day began with a prayer song. It was followed by a presentation. The presentation highlighted the message about competency of women, intellectual capacity of women as capable of holding high responsibility as efficiency as men can do. The kids enjoyed last day not only by sharing food with their peers and danced with the music. They were informed about the new journey that they are going to start, the hurdles they might face and without giving up how they can move ahead. The day concluded with the SR KG kids left their last palm impression at KG department as a memory what they can relish in the upcoming years.
