Somehow there are only 10 days left in this school year! I am always amazed when we arrive at this point each spring.
I am so ready for some relaxation but I always get emotional about saying goodbye to my students at the same time. I’m way excited to be done with assessments, report cards, classroom cleaning, and all that end of the year stuff but I’m feeling bittersweet about everything else.
We had our annual Open House celebration this past week which has added exhaustion to my mixed emotions. So did I start writing report cards or be productive in other way this weekend? Of course not!
I hope that you are surviving the end of the year craziness as best you can! Here are a few little freebies to help you make it through:
I have had an amazing group of parents this year and I wanted a little something to thank them for all they have done this year. I printed this on full page label paper, cut them out, & stuck them right onto a bag of microwave popcorn. I put a tray out at Open House for the parents to pick up. Click the photo above to download this little tag. UPDATE: I just added a second version of the tag that would be best for single parent families. Let me know if you have any other edits to suggest that would make the tags work for your particular gift giving situation 🙂
