LIZZIE AND THE LAST DAY OF SCHOOL SUMMARY
Lizzie has always loved school. She loved preschool and was very sad when kindergarten was over. When it came time for first grade, Lizzie was excited to be in school for a whole year! Lizzie’s teacher was Miss G and this was her first class. Over the year the class shared many memories together: reading 100 books, learning to hop, skip, and jump, planting a garden, and eating all their vegetables before dessert at lunch.
She then asked students to bring in a bag since it was almost the last day of school and they would be taking their supplies home. Lizzie really struggled with first grade being over, and she left on the last day without saying goodbye! Lizzie decides to sneak back to school to give Miss G a hug, and she finds that Miss G is also sad about the last day. Suddenly, the two find out Miss G will be teaching summer school in the park! Lizzie is happy she gets to go to school over the summer with Miss G!
