I better write about the end-of-the-school-year party of my daughter's class before these photos turn one year old. Their homeroom mom had in at the Library on the 21st of May last year. Yeah, I know, it's been a long time. You can tell how I slow I am with writing things but, it's better late than never right?
I truly admire the volunteer mom/s in making sure that our children have fun on special occasion and that the teacher is also given a little something special at the end of the school. Teachers in private/catholic school aren't paid as much as the public schools. If the teachers in public school think that their salary is low, the salary of the teachers in private school is a lot less. They spend their own money to buy the supplies they need in the classroom and sometimes provide for the students as well. That's why, we want to show our appreciation to them by giving them something.
Homeroom Moms also contributes to the overall happiness and learning of the students, without them, the kids won't be enjoying parties. I have great respect for them, I know I can't do what they do. My kids have been very lucky to have great Homeroom Moms, all of them are doing a great job making sure that all the children in the class are having fun during special occasions.
I thought the library was the perfect place for the party as it was really decorated nicely.
Isn't the big paintbrush a really pretty display? The library is also the art room for all the students so it make sense.
This was the time when taking pictures of these precious kids are still easy. Fast forward later, it is getting harder and harder to take pictures of them.
This dou Moms have a done a great job with the 6th graders last year. They are also the homeroom Moms for the same calls (now 7th grade). My daughter love them, it's always fun when they are around.
Another Mom who is also a great homeroom Mom, she was their homeroom Mom last year so my son miss it that she isn't their Homeroom mom this year.
Mrs. Bischof took over of the 6th graders last year when the former teacher resigned. She did a great job making the kids feel like normal again after an abrupt change in their class.
I love attending these parties because I get to talk to other Moms and to the students as well. Knowing the kids that hang out with your own kids is important.
Mrs. Arnold really spoil these kids with the divine cupcakes she always made. She can bake so good. This is the reason why, I never volunteered to become a homeroom Mom because I can't bake. These kids will get store bought sweets if I become their Homeroom Mom lol.
We prepared a surprise birthday gift for the teacher.
All the kids signed the card and they all give her a hug which made her cry.
After eating, we went outside the school and they played for a while. We took a group picture before we went back inside.
Slushy was served after the fun outdoors.
I even took my husband with me since he was off that day.
I can't believe these kids have grown so fast. I can still remember when I first drop off my daughter in kindergarten, I was so nervous and felt sick leaving her there since she was always with me since she was born. I didn't even put both of my kids in pre-school, I chose to teach them at home because I wanted them to stay. I felt like they were too young to go to school. I am so glad I did that because they value the time that they had with me learning the basic knowledge that they need in school.
Thank you very much Rose and Amy, you guys are awesome!
My daughter love her, she always call her "My Rylie".
Some of these kids left this year, they went to public schools but they also gained new classmates.
This year, they have had fun activities out of school. One more year and they will be heading to high school, time really flies! Glad I have plenty of photos to look back into.
End of year parties are always fun! All of the photos are so cute and it's hard to believe that another school year will be ending soon.ReplyDelete
This looks like it was a fun party! I like how there is still homeroom moms in middle school. I'm not sure if my daughter's middle school will have them. I guess I'll figure that out in the fall!ReplyDelete
Looks like a fun end of the school year party. Wonderful how the parents came together to throw this for the kids.ReplyDelete
Our six grade teacher is retiring this coming year so it will be an adjustment for the kids in the next class with a new teacher. I'm glad that this teacher was willing to help the kids transition that always helps because kids don't always take well to change. It looks like you all had a wonderful end of the year party.ReplyDelete
Wow that is a celebrations from all the mom volunteers and teachers. The kids look like they all had a blast.ReplyDelete
Sounds like a lovely event for the kids and their teachers. It's really important to show our appreciation for the teachers especially since they play an integral part in our children's development.ReplyDelete
This is great. I don't have children but I remember the Home Room Moms when I was a kid. If it wasn't for the Moms I don't know what the teachers would have done!ReplyDelete
This is way more than I ever did as a homeroom mom. You and the group did an amazing job. One of my kids graduates high school this year and we are planning a huge party for him and his friends.ReplyDelete
Looks like everyone had a great time! My kids always love end of the school year parties.ReplyDelete
The school year party looks like it was an absolute blast! I bet everyone had lots of fun.ReplyDelete
This looks like a really fun end of the school year party. I can't believe we are already in April. Not much longer and it will be June. Crazy!ReplyDelete
I love that they have a year end party to show appreciation for the teachers! Teachers are amazing and so are the homeroom moms that are there. I'm sure everyone had a great day celebrating!ReplyDelete
This looks like a very fun and livly party. I hope to do the same and host a similar thing for my baby girl when she leaves school (but gotta wait a few years)ReplyDelete
What fun! I homeschool, but we still go to classes. I can't wait for the official homeschool year to end so we can get out more and do more things.ReplyDelete
These are some really great ideas! End of the year parties are always a huge relief.ReplyDelete
What a fun time! I remember the last day of school was always the best. We would spend the day watching movies and eating fun snacks. One year we made ice cream from scratch.ReplyDelete
What a great party for the kids! I love the paintbrush decoration!ReplyDelete
