Last day of Kindergarten!

Today was the last day of Kindergarten!! Faye and Drew are excited for summer to be here, but I can tell they are a little sad school is over too (they are making weird faces in these pictures because it was very sunny this morning).

Ready for the last day of Kindergarten!
Last day of Kindergarten!
It was a very short day, with dismissal at 9:45am. Basically they just had to show up and pick up their report cards.  We (the room parents) decided to have a little mini-party on the last day. Since it was so early in the morning, we thought having snacks might be too much, for us and for them.  We wanted to do something simple - and we had $50 to spend. 

We decided to buy white T-shirts for the kids, fabric markers, and have the kids sign each shirt.  It was so easy and the least chaotic party we have ever had! The kids were excited about taking a t-shirt home too! They all finished early, so Mrs. Peterson said the kids could go outside and play on the playground.  Drew told me it was the best day of Kindergarten yet!

Faye had a perfect report card. No surprises there!  Drew also did really great, receiving all 3's on his report card.  Three's are the best you can get in almost every category, with only a few categories having 4 as the best, which I've heard are rarely given out.  Yeah! They have both learned so much this year - a big thanks to Ms. Curtis, Ms. Barber, and Mrs. Peterson for making Kindergarten a great experience for all the kids!!
