    ...until the start of my break (10 glorious days!). Not that I'm looking forward to it, or anything :whistle:.

    You do realize it's only Thursday, right??

    And your break starts on a Friday???

    Not doubting you, but there have been times I've woken up and sworn it HAD to be Friday, only to be disappointed.

    Here's hoping for a quick, uneventful day for you.

    Yep, I know it's Thursday; our break starts tomorrow. Every few years, we get an additional day tacked on to our break--something to do with number of days, when a holiday falls, etc. I should pay more attention to why, but all I care about is it's here!

    It should be a quick day. I have a couple of prep periods this morning and my regular Special Ed support in two of my favourite classrooms to be in. This afternoon, we have a "spirit" assembly (complete with teacher freeze-tag, I hear), then just time to finish my read-aloud novel with my class, then tidy up and go!

    Our break isn't for two weeks. We could all use a break after this week. It's been a tough week at our school, and I would love to have some time to recuperate.

    Yay, Mrs. C!

    Ours starts next week, Thursday for students, Friday for teachers.

    We didn't get a snow day this year, not a single one. So, I'm extra ready for this break!

    Lauren does have the same break. As she's the "only kid in the world" not going away somewhere warm and sunny next week, we'll just head down to Buffalo and Niagara Falls for a couple of days to do some shopping. She needs a prom dress and we'll need to start gathering up the stuff she'll need when she goes away to school. We likely won't go until the middle of next week, though; we both need a few days of doing absolutely nothing but sleeping, reading (me) and watching movies.

    Sounds like a good day, Mrs. C.

    Our break doesn't begin for another three weeks. I'm taking a personal day tomorrow. I started to feel a bit burnt out so it'll be nice to just have that day to goof around.

    Check to see if there is more than one calendar. Several years ago we bought airline tickets based on the calendar published in our hs.handbook. It indicated that Wednesday was the last day before Christmas break. But they changed the calendar and I didn't realize it. I had no idea they changed the school calendar until just a few days before Christmas break. Other teachers said they didn't even realize the calendar in the handbook and the new one they handed out were different. Anyway, I told the principal about the airline tickets and he tried to make me change my tickets. He didn't seem to care about my family back east, all my plans - nothing. He just said "...now that you know then you need to change your tickets." But he was acting like I was foolish. He seemed mad at me and seemed intimidating. I felt like he did not even consider that he made a mistake allowing the first calendar to be published in our High School handbook. So I left two days earlier than I was supposed to.
    That principal seemed to treat me differently from then on. Maybe he thought I was stupid or should have known by talking to other teachers. He just acted like he didn't like me from then on. I felt intimidated by him. And when he observed me later on, he wrote me up for incompetence.
    I guess I should have spent more time socializing than preparing lessons - I used to put so much time into that job.
    As it turned out, I did survive that year and he lost his job!

    One calendar...never any changes once it is published (and ours for next year is published already). Break has officially begun, although it took forever to get the kids out of school!

    Feet up, take out chicken bought for dinner...where's that first glass of wine?

    Have a great break! I have one more week to go, but that's probably a good thing--I'm going to Florida, and haven't even pulled my summer clothes out of the garage yet!

    Our break starts next Fri. Between now and then I have two Field Days to run for two schools. All the children will participate and it is an all day event. I have one tomorrow and the other next Friday. I have to move all the stuff I use from one school to the other. We even have a bike race after lunch for the 2-5th grades.
    Now the wife has me painting the inside of the house on the break.
    :eek:
