Last Day of School 2014

As I’ve mentioned, today is the last day of school. We’ve been super busy with end of school events over the last two weeks!

Let’s start with Simon. Yesterday, the pre-K had their graduation, and Simon’s class participated by singing 3 songs. Unfortunately, he was in front of a glass door so the lighting didn’t make for great photos of him.

I asked Simon a few questions:

  1. What was your favorite part of school this year? “Everything.”

  2. What did you learn? “Nothing. I think we learned about Hashem (God). On the picture they have a Torah.”

  3. What are you looking forward to when you go back to school?  “I can’t wait to go to Morah Sherrill’s class!”

  4. What do you want to be when you grow up? “A Big Kid! That’s what I want to be.”


Zachary’s class had a picnic at the park last week.

Then this week, they performed a play based on the book “The Day The Crayons Quit.” Zachary was an orange crayon.

Zachary also received a certificate for participating in the 100 Mile Club. He reached 25 miles, which earned him a t-shirt!

I asked Zachary a few questions:

  1. What was your favorite part of school this year? “Computers and PE.”

  2. What did you learn? “Math.”

  3. What are you looking forward to when you go back to school? “Having specials.”

  4. What do you want to be when you grow up? “I want to work for MetLife.”


Gabbie’s class had a party, but the parents weren’t invited, so no pictures! However, I was present when she danced in the talent show last week!

Gabbie also got a certificate for the 100 Mile Club (yes they spelled her name wrong)!

I asked Gabbie a few questions:

  1. What was your favorite part of school this year? “Our marble parties.”

  2. What did you learn? “Multiplication.”

  3. What are you looking forward to when you go back to school?  “Being with Ms. Safir again.”

  4. What do you want to be when you grow up? “A ballet teacher or a teacher.”

Happy Summer!

I love their answers to your questions! Especially that Simon says he learned nothing haha! I can't wait to read about your summertime adventures!

Tamara Bowman said...

Aw! We still have three more weeks of school in the big northeast.
How was it with Simon? I'm freaking out about Scarlet graduating pre-K but she's my first. And there may even be a third, although I have my doubts.

Alex said...

I love the book The Day the Crayons Quit! And love the idea of a play based on it. What I cute idea.


And I can't help but think it's amusing that Zachary wants to work for MetLife. Although I did see your comment to Tamar about your husband working there, but still think it's a little amusing.

Dara said...

that is funny that you've heard of the book - I'd never heard of it before the class read it.
and it is pretty funny that Zachary gave metlife as his answer - he's never said that before!
