How do you mark the end of the school year? What if it is a "big" year [ie- pk4, k, 5th, 8th, or 12th] coming to a close?
Public schools in our area go k-5, 6-8, 9-12. Most private schools do pre-k and 8th. Some also do k and 5th. Ds is in 5th now (homeschooled), Dd is in 8th (private school). Dd will have a big end of year graduation celebration at school as an 8th grader. Her school does graduation ceremonies only for pk4 and 8th grade. Ds has decided he would like to do some kind of 5th grade graduation, especially since we will have family visiting for graduation and/or dd's confirmation. I think it isn't a bad idea to validate his experience and how far he has come in some way. I also feel like it is important for both kids to see that we are marking milestones in both their lives.
So any suggestions based on how you do things in your household/school?
