Miss Lu finished kindergarten with a special Kindergarten Star celebration.
Her class performed the play of the "Very Hungry Kindergartner" (a la "The Very Hungry Caterpillar"), which included various dances and songs. Each child also read a short (2-3 sentences) story they wrote about their home.
Next her teacher Mrs. Whitaker called each child up to receive a special certificate and trophy. As the certificates were presented, she read something special about that child. Miss Lu's said "Thank you for the many creative ideas you gave to your stories in your journal. Thank you for your excitement about learning and your special smile you shared with everyone."
Afterwards we all stayed to celebrate with a giant potluck picnic! All in all, it was a fabulous way to end kindergarten. Nick and I feel so lucky to have had such a wonderful, caring, patient, and creative teacher for our little Lucy!
