Closing Out Another School Year
As the end of the school year is fast approaching and summer is right around the corner, we wanted to take this time to slow down a little bit and reflect back on a year of triumphs and tribulations, successes and failures, mistakes and lessons learned.
We found a couple great articles to help you as parents cope with the last few weeks of school and make sure our kids finish on a positive note, and enter their summer vacation proud of their accomplishments and ready for the year ahead.

End The School Year With A Bang
We also found a nice article to help you as teachers prepare your class for the year ahead, but also to celebrate the year you had together.
