WHAT ARE SOME OF YOUR MEMORIES OR STORIES OF THE LAST DAY OF SCHOOL AS A KID BEFORE SUMMER BEGAN?

The last day of school ( elementary, junior high, high school, etc) was always of mixed emotions. Happy that I passed all exams, happy that I didn't have to go to another class for awhile; but sad that I probably would not see some of my class mates for a good while and maybe never. I was also a bit anxious at where my next chapter would lead.

Every summer I felt such relief. Graduation was the best because it meant that I didn’t have to go back. I enjoyed college tho. I hated public school.

On our last day of school, our entire aero engineering class (18 total) took a late morning final exam together, then adjourned (with a number of our professors) to a just-off-campus bar. The bulk of us remained there until after midnight, and it's by the grace of God we all got home without being arrested or killing ourselves or someone else. That was the last time I saw most of those professors and about half of my classmates.

I was always sad when the school year ended much like Critter expressed in his post, however I took full joy in summer fun! But the absolute worst was when I graduated high school.

My grandfather and I were very close. He lived and breathed being there to see me graduate, and as fate would have it, he passed very suddenly from a heart attack 4 days before I graduated. His funeral was the day before my graduation. I will be honest and tell you it's all one big blur and I remember very few details of any of it...funeral or graduation. But I'm pretty sure gramps was proud of me and looking in on the event.

Rather not say
I had failed so many classes my senior year that I didn't know I was graduating. I only found out I was when my graduating class was called into the auditorium, the principal called your name and handed you 3x5 card that you traded in for your actually diploma after the actual ceremony.
