6th Grader's End of the School Year Party 2017

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.
