Brutal New Jersey school year ends on a touching note

Sad. Only. Boring. Confusing. Frustrating. These are just a few of the words my 10 year old son has used at different times this year to describe what he has been through at different times. I mean, it was definitely not a typical school year and not for the best. However, it ended on a positive note as evidenced by this must-see video.

Although I know it was not the same experience and the kids missed the socialization and probably some level of education was sacrificed, but it wasn’t that bad. In fact, there was a lot of good. My son’s teachers were all upbeat, outgoing and helpful with him and my family throughout the year. I know the students and parents have had a very difficult year, but so have the teachers and the school administration. I have so much respect for the job they all did while dealing with adversity and navigating really tough situations. That’s why the video below from the Berkeley Township School District really warmed my heart. After going through virtual education, social distancing, masks, etc. the most difficult school year (certainly in my lifetime) was drawing to a close and it ended with smiles, cries and waves of joy.

How did you experience this school year? How did your family do? Congratulations to all the students, teachers, professors and families who survived 2021. We will all be stronger for it! PS: what do you think of this list?
