    Our last day of classes is Monday June 6.

    Then it's 6 half-days of exams, ending with math on June 14.

    Yesterday I had my last Sodality meeting with my Seniors. We've been together since they were freshmen; it's been wonderful seeing them grow into adults. At some point in the next week or so, before their last class day next Monday, I want to write a letter to them. (I would love to do individual letters, but with 25 Junior letters of recommendation and about 140 Geometry projects awaiting my attention, not to mention this week's Algebra and Geometry tests, I somehow don't see it happening.)

    The year-end Senior festivities are getting started. They just returned from their big Disney trip and had a wonderful time. At some point this week they'll have the Senior luncheon. Then, shortly before graduation is the Senior Sendoff-- our version of a prom. (It's a dinner cruise around Manhattan, including a prolonged stop at the Statue of Liberty. It's open only to members of our Senior class-- no outside dates.) Then it's the Baccalaureate Mass and Graduation on June 4.

    Hard to believe they're graduating already!

    I became a class advisor the year I started teaching, starting with the freshman class, who I also taught. Two years later when they were Juniors, I switched to teaching 11th grade. So by the time they graduated, I had been their advisor 4 years, taught most of them twice, and they had been my very first students. That was an emotional graduation. I would say I am friends on facebook with about 2/3 of the class and I love that I can easily keep in touch with them.

    We have 22 days left with kids, 23 all together, and we also have 17 until exams begin.

    We have 33 days left, and to be honest, I can't wait to move on. I'll miss my grade twos, but I won't miss teaching French!

    I still have counted. I know that I only have 4 more days with my seniors, but I have 3ish weeks left with my juniors ... or, something like that. :)

    We have ten teaching days and four exam days left. Then a random day after exams when we're supposed to have students (with nothing to do with them) and then a teacher work day.

    22 left but four are early release. I have had a great year but right now I am feeling it a little bit. Lots to do before it is over.
    I am going to do an archery unit for my 3-5th with my brand new archery stuff. The bad thing is I have to haul it back and forth each day in my truck from school to school and those targets are
    heavy. It will be a workout.

    35 and a half days left with kids--one of those is Track and Field and one is the Grade 8 trip. There will be other "events" that come up, but we still have lots of teaching left to do!

    19 days until final exams. One of the 19 is a half day. I mentioned this specifically today to two students who have grades in the low 60s. Wanted to emphasize to them that the time left to bring up their grade to passing (70% or higher) is not a whole lot.

    We have 7 teaching days left, and 4 days of exams. I don't know how I will manage. We are all very behind. We had a student pass away this week and its been very tough for the students. Plus, we some how lost 4 days between last week and today in teaching time. I haven't taught a full day since last Wednesday. It has been interruptions after interruption. Friday we have mass and birthday celebrations, that messes us up for the whole day. I will only be able to teach one class to each of my groups.

    I am glad we are coming to an end though, I've been preparing for next year since April. I'm excited!
