End of school closure: Thurs. June 13th Picnic 6:00 PM & June 17th Pre-K Graduation 2:30 PM

June 3rd, 2019

It can be hard for many students to leave their teachers and friends behind during the summer months. They are used to the routine, and change does not come easily. Even though summer vacation is highly anticipated, losing contact with people they’ve seen every day for nine months can be difficult for students. Closure provides everyone with a chance to say goodbye and remember the fun times.

If you plan to leave your current school for whatever reason, it is especially important for you to provide closure at the end of the year (or before you leave). Students returning in the fall enjoy visiting their previous teacher before meeting the new one for the upcoming school year. It provides them with a sense of continuity and comfort. Meeting a new teacher can be stressful and uncertain for students. Visiting a favorite teacher from the past often bolsters student confidence to move forward. It is very disconcerting then, to suddenly find your favorite teacher is no longer working at the school.
