God of wisdom, we thank you for all the gifts you have given us throughout this school year.

We praise you for giving us life, for saving us in Christ, and for choosing us to be your people.

As we come to the end of this school year, we voice our gratitude for the good things you have done in us,

and we praise you for all who have shared in the work of this school.

We ask you to bless them in your love and give them refreshment and peace. Amen.
