Kids throughout Loudoun County are basking in end-of-year celebrations today.
It’s the last day of school for more than 85,000 local kindergarten through high school students.
Each school is celebrating the end of classes and the beginning of the summer break a little differently. To name a few: parents at River Bend Middle School decorated and displayed poster boards with congratulatory messages for their students; many graduating seniors, dressed in their cap and gown, stopped by their former elementary schools; fifth-graders at Discover Elementary put on a concert to celebrate their promotion to middle school; students at Seneca Ridge Middle School decorated the sidewalks with chalk art to mark the happy milestone.
Others are holding water fights, classroom parties and “cleaning” desks through shaving cream art.
Most students in Loudoun are out of school for the next 11 weeks. The 2018-2019 school year begins on Thursday, August 23, 2018, for the Loudoun County Public Schools and most area private schools.
