From start to finish, there was plenty of excitement, song, and a flash mob at Hopkins School.
There was plenty of excitement for teachers and students on the last day of school in Hopkinton. Photographer Vicki Francis and mom and Hooray for Books owner Mary Murphy took photos at Hopkins and Hopkinton Middle School. Make sure of you haven't already read Lisa Stukel's story (and more photos) about the hopkiins All-School Meeting to check that out too. Have your own last-day-of-school photos?

Sign up if you haven't already, and make your comment on the right-hand side of the home page where it says "What do you have to say?"
