    How many days does everyone have left? We have 2 1/2 days this week, then Easter break. We have a total of 15 school days left. :eek: I'm excited, but can't believe the year is almost gone!

    We start early. We started around the 15th of August. The last day for my kids is May 19 (1/2 day). I finish up the next day.

    Wow, that seems so early! We aren't out until almost a month later...but we were a little inundated with snow this year!

    We got some this year, too. It was considerate enough, though, to mainly come on weekends and school holidays! :)

    Weekend snow?!? Holiday snow?!? What's the fun in that! I need my 1 or 2 snow days a year. Anything more is just a little excessive.

    Our last day is the 18th, we have 18 school days left. In those 18 is an early dismissal for our track meet, and a 10:00 start. And the last, half day.

    We have 20 days left. Graduation is on the 14th, the last day for elementary is the 18th and the final day is on the 20th. My stepson graduates in Oklahoma so I have three less days! :woot:

    I'm in somewhat an odd school system. We are on a 4-day week. Probably should mention that in my intro thread.

    We started september 1st and end June 9th. It still seems pretty far away! We dont' get snow days- if we closed school every time there was a snow storm, we'd never have school! People out here have just learned to drive in it. I did get two week long breaks after christmas break though- one the week of presidents day and one this week. I'd never heard of having that until I moved out here.

    I just went to the school calendar and counted.

    We have 23 teaching days left. (And 7 exam days, including today.)

    It's going to FLY!

    I should add, out of those 47 days, we have: the grade 8 trip, track and field day, spring concert dress rehearsal, talent show, 3 assemblies, an author visit, 3 days of testing for grade 3s and 6s, Playday for K to Grade 3 and who knows what else. We'll probably only have 35 teaching days.

    We've started our official countdown at school. Every year the kids decorate flowers and we "pick" one each day to count down. They are so excited. Two of our remaining days are half-days and one is field day.

    We have 29 school days left. Four of those are final exams, so 25 instructional days. Because of AB block, I'll see each class about 12 more times.

    We started Aug 18 and go till June 10th. We get a week at Thanksgiving, two weeks at Christmas and a week for spring break plus other holidays. Stupidly, we get Memorial Day which is sometimes the last week of school. The other is Labor Day. Go to school a week or two and then get a holiday.
    so 36 after today.

    31 days! 6 or 7 of those are half days though. We only have 4 full weeks of school left! As a new teacher, I'm thrilled I made it!

    (We started August 18th and get out June 7th... ) Seems like a long school year to me when in Michigan we would go back around Labor Day and get out around June 10th-15th.

    Counting by Mondays, what a great idea! It makes it seem more manageable.

    We have 39 student days left.
