    We can't get into our classrooms over the summer, so I have BOXES of stuff in my garage that I need to go through. I've barely made it through 1 box and we've been out of school for a month now :eek:. Maybe another day....right? ;) Good luck on finishing your room!

    Wow! We don't get access into our rooms until the week before our kids come. You have done quite a lot of work.

    My room is completely cleaned from top to bottom. Our custodians do a fantastic job... floors refinished, windows washed, cubbies washed, sink and counter scrubbed, desk tops washed. My room rug also gets a shampooing. They also put back all furniture where I request it as we have to leave room maps. I feel so blessed to have these men and women working in my school.

    I have alot of files of paper, worksheets, activities that I need to go through, but I have a feeling I am just going to go in and throw most all of it away to get rid of the clutter. There is just too much stuff that has collected over the years. I want to keep things simple this year.

    I wish that I could get into my room before the year begins... sadly I will have 2 a possible 3 workdays before the children come.... so my work on the file cabinet will have to wait. I inherited the classroom after a teacher retired... so you can imagine all the wonderful things that I was blessed with... to organize, file and the list goes on.

    Did I mention that I'm going into my 2nd year... and my goals this year was better record keeping as well as staying organized and filing things away..

    I went in today for a couple of hours. I got to feeling sick though (literally) and came home. I moved from a smaller classroom to one that is a bit bigger, and everything is in boxes and stacks, wall to wall. It is really overwhelming. I am glad I still have about a month to get it all done. (By the way, congrats, iloveschool, on getting so much done!) :D

    I'm going back into my classroom the first week in August. Between PD classes, doctor's appointments (I currently have vertigo!), and trying to fit in some time with my grandkids, I just can't get in till then!

    I have a meeting at school tonight.

    But I'm not touching all the stuff I have to move until the end of August.
