End of School Year Checklist
With only a few weeks remaining in this school year, it is time to start thinking about all of those things that need to get done before summer vacation officially begins for our students. Throughout the month of May, keep this list handy and check tasks off as they are completed.
Put the dates of important events at school such as field trips, track and field days, and awards recognition on your calendar.
Look at home for any library books or textbooks that must be returned.
Have your son/daughter check the lost and found for any missing clothes items.
Remind your child to take AR tests earlier, rather than during the last week of school.
Make sure that all assignments have been turned in on time.
Remember to pay any fees: lunch money, book fines, band bills, etc.
Update your e-mail address and mailing address if those have changed during the school year so that you will receive important communications throughout the summer.
Another school year has nearly come to an end. I’d like to thank you for supporting your son/daughter throughout the year by helping with homework, attending school events, communicating with teachers, asking your child questions and listening to his answers, and all the other things you do each day to help our students achieve success.
