With a smile on your face
Remind the students of how proud you are
Of their tireless effort, perseverance, and care for one another.
Tell them that you're there to help them succeed in every way possible.
Ask if they have any ideas or questions about the next leg of the school year.
Agree that for some, it's sad to say good-bye to the holidays and vacation
And that we'll be sure to create good times with learning and classroom community.
Get a good night's rest.
Enjoy the day ahead.
