Lasting Surprise
The last day of the school year always brings with it a sense of accomplishment and excitement for the summer days ahead. But this year at the I PROMISE School, the last day had an added element of surprise… 
As the students went about their final day, each class was individually called to the Lion’s Den for a “family meeting.” While they listened to announcements and engaged with the speaker, a special visitor quietly entered through the doors in the back of the room. It didn’t take long for them to recognize the 6’9” kid from Akron who came by to spend the afternoon with his kids. There were hugs, high fives and happy tears all around as LeBron shared words of encouragement and conveyed the importance of hard work, respect, and role modeling in different ways to each grade level.
The last day of the school year always brings with it a sense of accomplishment and excitement for the summer days ahead.
The students’ amazing reactions to the surprise went viral across all media, with so many sharing in their joy and excitement.  
It was indeed the last day of school after a tough year at IPS.
But it was a moment we hope they never forget and that inspires them to do and be more than they ever thought possible. Because as LeBron shared with them, they are our future leaders and we believe in them.
And now begins a busy summer packed with family and student activities, special events, and lots and lots of hard work.
We Are Family.
