End of the Constitution

I had a strange question in class: what's the end of the consitution called? After Article VII, we have:

done in Convention by the Unanimous Consent of the States present the Seventeenth Day of September in the Year of our Lord one thousand seven hundred and Eighty seven and of the Independence of the United States of America the Twelfth In witness whereof We have hereunto subscribed our Names, [signatures]

Everybody knows the beginning is called the Preamble but is there a term for the last section or is it considered part of Article VII?
