Our last day of school went something like this:

Teacher: Ok everyone we are going to get ready for our movie now.

Student: Miss Duff I don't want to watch the movie.

Teacher: Ohhh! So what do you want to do?

Student: I want to talk.

Student 2: Ya Miss Duff,  I don't want to watch the movie too.

Well, the students have spoken! Would you believe they did just what they wanted - and talked about what they would miss from online school, things they enjoyed, and a lot of goodbyes.  There is a beauty in knowing that students can feel so comfortable in a classroom to voice their opinion and be heard.
