Some of the best things to look forward to as a kid were those last days of school before summer vacation. What are your memories?
In grammar school we always had something called "Field Day" the day before the last day of school (Field Day was on a Wednesday, last day on a Thursday). Basically it was a party day where we had games outside like relay races and bike races and things like that, and we could wear whatever we wanted (going to a Catholic school, you always looked forward to free dress day) and we usually had McDonalds or pizza brought in that day.
The last day of school rocked because it always ended at 10:30. We'd get to school, go to mass, go back to the room to get our report cards and be out of there. Loved the last day of school (except for the whole report card part).
High school wasn't nearly as "fun" because you always had finals the last days of school. We'd have 3 days of finals, say on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, then Thursday was a mass (again, Catholic school) and that would be it. But it was oh so nice to be DONE let me tell you.
