毕业，意味着成长；离别，意味着再聚，2018年7月12、13日，张家港新纽顿幼儿园为毕业班的孩子们举行了意味深长的Last Night In Newton活动。孩子们离开父母，在老师的陪伴下，独立度过这个难忘的一夜。
Today marks the last day of the school year. To close out the year Newton decided to host a sleepover party for all of our K2 graduates. The sleepover showed great signs of independence and what better way to spend their last night as kindergarteners than together as a class!
The children returned to school at 7pm and prepared for a night full of adventure and events. They began the night by creating special wish cards for their fellow graduates. Each classroom decorated their own cards and delivered it to another K2 classroom. Hugs, laughter, and best wishes were exchanged.
Following the card giving the children sat down together to make wishes for themselves and blow out some candles on a delicious cake.
After the celebration the children brought out their flashlights and huddled around each other to begin their “walk after dark”. Each class explored the school looking for memorable pictures of their class’s journey at Newton. They worked together to search every inch of the school. Together as a team they succeeded in finding these pictures and celebrated their bravery in the dark.
After a night of searching for precious treasure the children settled down and prepared for sleep. Some classes even decided to build a fort together and make silly shadow puppets!
The next morning the students enjoyed some outdoor activities together. They took advantage of the beautiful sun and great weather and relived the joy of Newton summers in the pool and sand play! They even had a friendly competition with each other using Leap Box! After the fun, they gathered together in the hall to enjoy one last meal together buffet style.
The time has come to say goodbye to their teachers and friends. Each child has left behind their own memory and handprint for Newton to cherish and remember. Our students will never forget Newton and all the happy times but this last night together was one of the most memorable. It was their first and last night together at Newton. A sweet goodbye to Newton and all their friends.
我们和老师说再见，和Newton说再见，我们在这里留下我们的小手印，这些小手印汇聚成一道美丽的彩虹之桥 —— 相信我们的未来一定像这彩虹桥一般美好！再见了，亲爱的孩子们，Newton会永远记住你们，珍藏好这份美好！
