A year of sharpening pencils, reading books, and doing homework has come to an end.
Today was the last day of school,and it was filled with excitement and sorrow for many students at Sunny Side Elementary, as they ended this year with a school wide assembly.
Many of the students have big plans in store for the summer, while others are sorry to see school end.
