Ending the School Year A well planned closing can make your life a great deal easier and far more enjoyable for you and your students. “Planned” is the operative word. While soliciting the help of parents and colleagues, decide what you want to do and then plan all the details in a timely fashion. You can do many things to make the end of the school year a memorable one. Closing out the year is just as important as the start of the year. Often as teachers we give the end of year less emphasis for many reasons-–we are tired, the tests are over and we are looking forward to summer vacation. But it is important to remember that learning continues up to the last day. For the New Teacher
