Slideshow | School’s out! Last day in Snoqualmie marked with smiles, goodbyes

The last day of school at Snoqualmie Elementary saw a lot of smiles from children and parents alike.

As a small boy and girl searched the lost and found for a Gap sweatshirt and blue jacket, nearby parents talked about summer plans and vacations. Lined by the door, third graders counted down the last seconds to summertime, and many children hugged their teachers before running for the bus or their parents.

After waving goodbye to the buses with the teachers, ‘Miss S.E.S.’ Lynn Kehoe could be seen walking back talking to the many teachers she has helped throughout years of volunteering in classrooms. Kehoe confided that it was her “last hurrah.”

Many fifth graders could be seen in front of the school celebrating their “last hurrah” at the school, as well.

School resumes in the Snoqualmie Valley School District on Wednesday, Aug. 29.
