Our Top End-of-School-Year Traditions

Most kids only have a few weeks left of school before summer hits.  So someone looked at the top end-of-school traditions we do.

2,000 moms with kids aged five to 12 were polled, and just under two-thirds said they have at least one tradition.  Here are eight of them that people said they do each year, or have done before.

1.  Taking a photo of your kids at the end of each grade?  50% do it.  So look forward to lots of those photos on Facebook.

2.  Taking their old homework or workbooks and BURNING them, 49%.  (Do that many people really do that?  It seems a bit extreme.)

3.  Writing thank-you notes to teachers, 48%.

4.  Putting school-related stuff in storage, or in a closet.  46%.

5.  Getting ice cream, 43%.

6.  Decorating the sidewalk with chalk art, 40%.

7.  Throwing an end-of-school party, 38%.

8.  Making s’mores, 36%.
