Chloé and Tina discuss why creating closure around this school year is important and they provide you with 5 suggestions.
We have relied on our schools to provide the end of the year closure activities but when our schools are unable to do that, we are left feeling a little lost and lingering feelings might arise. To help us transition into summer break, try these 5 activities.
1) Have a celebration
2) Create a certificate and give it out to each family member sharing what great job they did this school year
4) Write a letter to your teacher
5) Acknowledge what you have accomplished this school year and set goals for the summer
Enjoy your summer!!
