The end of the school year brings an array of emotions: the pride of graduation and moving up, the excitement of summer rejuvenation, the sorrow of ending a learning relationship, the disappointment in the ground we didn't cover, and the accomplishment for the growth we saw. Summer break offers us a chance to take stock of our efforts and restock our reserves. But first, there's a few more weeks to make the most of this year.

In this week's newsletter, read about four ways to end the year on a high note, or challenge students with a meaningful culminating assessment. Drop by the Tch Video Lounge to reflect on the year that was and think forward on the year that will be. And the 2016-17 school year may always be remembered as the dawn of the fidget spinner. But, a talented teacher can even spin that annoyance into learning.
