Our students spent almost two hours on the last day of school, roaming the hallways to get their yearbooks signed. Kids who are leaving for good often have their uniforms signed as well. And some, even if they aren’t leaving, having themselves signed.
It was a good last day. Many fewer kids sobbing at the end of the day. I stayed in the same school system for grades 1-12 but I can see how painful it is for some children who move often.
