Yikes! When the suffixes hear that the students will tackle word endings after lunch, they head to the gym and prepare to defend themselves. Meanwhile, Mr. Wright discovers the lesson has disappeared. He threatens the kids with no summer vacation unless they find the word endings. The class scrambles to track down the endings, quickly hanging up (suffix-less) wanted posters all over the school. Relived to know the kids' true intentions, the suffixes leave clues around the school that help save summer vacation and teach the kids a lesson they'll never forget — a very happy ending!
