Focus In: Final Days

There were more tears today as students navigated the end-of-school events. It's an emotional time for a large number of reasons including fatigue, changing schools, anticipation of summer and more.

Yet there were also stronger friendships forming, laughter, and joy as children engaged in end-of-year activities and choices.

As I think of the final events, I want to focus on the following:

  • Welcoming family members, students, teachers, and other visitors to the Global Changemakers Presentation. Encouraging students' best presentations.
  • Completing end-of-year letters.
  • Leading a successful field trip.
  • Collaborating on a positive move-up day.
  • Facilitating a good clean up.
  • Relaxing on the final day with students playing games, talking, helping out, and enjoying the final slideshow and clap-out.
Then there will be time for family and rest. Later I'll assess the year as I ready for the next year on my own and with colleagues. Onward.
