A mom sent me a note wanting me to ask what are your traditions for the last day of school? She said her mom would always take them out to lunch on the last day because they usually only went a half day.
I’ve been trying to think of something great for us to do. My 11-year-old has been invited to an end-of-fifth-grade pool party up the street. It’s just for fifth graders so the other two are two are not invited. We may swim at home or just hang out. Maybe we’ll go out to dinner? Movie night? I don’t know.
Some of the fifth graders are planning to go to this arcade/laser tag place but that’s not getting me excited. I’m working three different class parties the day before school gets out so I’m just kind of feeling pooped in general.
What are your fun plans for the last day of school? Give us some idea for great traditions to start with our kids. (I am really drawing a blank on this.)
