Ending the School Year

      As the school year draws to a close, many students are eager to go on summer vacation. Everyone has worked hard, from staff to students and administration. Reward this hard work by holding class competitions, a movie, teacher luncheon, or simply giving out thank-you cards to staff.

 –How do you show appreciation for staff?
 –How does your council stay active throughout the summer?
