16 Last Day of School Quotes to Finish out the School Year

School is out for the Summer! Well, almost.

Before we can think about vacation plans, soaking up the sun, summer camps, and lounging around on the beach, we have to finish all of the end of the school year activities. There are tests to take, homework to forget (senior-itis, amiright?), and class parties to enjoy!

We started the year with sharpened pencils, new crayons, a fresh haircut, and a positive attitude. And now we’re ending it with flat erasers and torn notebooks, but also with closer friendships and a lot more knowledge in our heads. Sounds like a good tradeoff, if you ask us.

Whatever grade you’re in and whatever kind of school you attend, the last day of school is bittersweet. It’s the end of something and endings are often a little sad. But it’s also the beginning of the rest and relaxation we all need and then another new school year, which you’ll enter a little older, a little wiser, and maybe a little more tan from your Summer travels. 

On the last day of school, it’s time to say bye to all of our friends, classmates, and teachers. It’s the day to get our yearbooks signed and clean out our lockers. If you’re a teacher, grades are done! And if you’re a parent, summer plans are made (maybe)! We’re all ready to enjoy ourselves for the next few months and then start the school year all over again in the Fall!
