School Year Ends For Twin Falls School District
Twin Falls, Idaho ( KMVT-TV / KSVT-TV ) School’s out for the summer for those in the Twin Falls School District.
The books have been packed and the lesson plans are complete, but that didn't mean the kids were ready to go home just yet.
To help kick off the summer, students at O’Leary Middle School spent the day signing yearbooks and saying their goodbyes.
Along with that, an awards assembly took place for each grade and those who went above and beyond were recognized.
John Hyatt is the principal at O’Leary.
He says the last day of school is a moment these kids will remember the rest of their lives.
"It's just a fun day for kids to be involved in school. There is no pressure of classes or tests, assessments or homework. It's just... we can have fun, and that's so... so important to these kids," Hyatt explains.
It was an extra special last day of school for Principal Hyatt.
After 42 years of educating our youth and six years as principal at O’Leary, he is officially retiring.
He says he's looking forward to spending time with his grandchildren and even doing a little bit of traveling.
He would like to thank the community and the many students he has been able to teach over the years.
