Tuesday is the final day of classes for Seattle Public Schools, and you can probably remember what it was like to try to get through those final few days till summer break – never mind the fact that, so far as we can remember, summer break used to arrive a lot earlier than it does now (at least where we grew up, elsewhere in the West). It’s a tradition for many schools to celebrate the year’s successes with special activities – and we received a few from two of the schools doing so yesterday – Top photo and next one are from Alki Elementary School‘s Razzle-Dazzle Day, courtesy of Nancy Woodland from WestSide Baby (which is sponsoring Guys’ Night Out 5 pm @ White Center Eagles tonight, don’t forget – sign up here!). Though we don’t have a photo, she says the principal even got dunked!
And at Lafayette Elementary School in the Admiral District, Friday was Field Day – Luckie shared the next two photos, explaining that the activities included hands-on sustainability adventures, like working with a worm bin:
Plus the more traditional goofy fun – water polo with spray bottles and a wading pool:
Here’s the calendar for next school year – note the early start date for West Seattle Elementary.
