We have a tradition in our home: on the last day of school, the kids can have anything they want for breakfast. Because of this tradition, I owe apologies to our kids’ teachers through the years. There have been many last days of school when our kids have arrived for the emotional and exciting day pumped full of ice cream and other such foods. Today, our kids had chocolate milkshakes and waffles.
Traditions can be a lot of fun, and they can help ease the stress of transitions (see my June 4 Weekly Howl blurb for more about transitions). Over the past year, many of the traditional events at AAS have been missed. However, this spring has been full of traditional events and new events to mark the end of the year. Last week we had the HS Benefit Gig, which was exceptional and set a very high bar for future Gigs. This week alone, we have had the 5th and 8th grade Moving Up ceremonies, the Awards and Recognition Assemblies, the Farewell Assemblies, and more.
