June 27-28 Weekend Highlights by NYMetroParents
School's Out, Now What?!
Let the fun begin.

June 27-28
The future's so bright, gotta wear shades...

School let out in most of our communities this week, so chances are you'll be at a barbecue or two in celebration of one of your own grads or a family member's. If you haven't gotten a gift yet, we've got you covered, with unique and highly likable gifts for elementary school "grads," middle school mover-uppers, and the biggie: high school graduates (including these cool, virtually indestructible sunglasses from TOMS). We've put a few of these items on our own wish lists, too...just sayin'.

For the days when you haven't got a party, our weekend agenda below has only the best picks for your family—have fun, and wear sunscreen!
