    It is going out with a bang if you study at University Settlement’s Adult Literacy Program..

    • Hi Angela,
      Remember that “going out with a bang” means ending something in an impressive or excellent way. So it might be better to say that this school year at University Settlement went out with a bang because we had a big, fun party yesterday.
