It's break time, but keep in touch

Centennial Middle School students Crystal Parks, 13, Ricky Alexander, 13, and Marie Bush, 12, fly their handmade and painted Japanese kites from a hill behind the school last Thursday.

Centennial Middle School students Crystal Parks, 13, Ricky Alexander, 13, and Marie Bush, 12, fly their handmade and painted Japanese kites from a hill behind the school last Thursday.

The 2007-08 school year wraps up today for Pasco County students. True to form, the last week has seen a bevy of end-of-year activities: ice cream socials, pizza parties, teachers vs. fifth-graders kickball games, moving-on ceremonies and, yes, final exams. Students in Lesli Platt's art class at Centennial Middle School flew the Japanese kites they created for a school assignment.

The end of school today marks the beginning of summer break for students and faculty, as well as for Top of the Class.

We'll be on hiatus until school resumes in August.

Even so, we'll still be looking for some good news stories to feature throughout the summer. So go ahead and send us your newsmakers, your scholarship winners, your National Honor Society inductees and such.

And have a wonderful and safe summer.
