Here are eight ideas for ending the school year on a high note that will leave your students and staff excited for the summer.
- Have a culminating event: Whether it’s a graduation ceremony, field trip, or final exam party, make sure there is something special at the end of the year. This will help your students and staff feel like they’ve completed something important, and it will be a nice reminder of all the progress they’ve made.
- Hold summer graduation: This may be a bit ambitious, but if you can pull it off, it would be a memorable way to end the school year. You would need to coordinate with your school district to make this happen, but it would be a spectacular way to celebrate the accomplishments of your students.
- Have a series of end-of-year concerts: This is a great way to give your students a final hurrah before summer vacation. You can hold several concerts over the course of the week or even have one big concert on the last day of school.
