    T-minus 2 hours and 20 minutes until our March Break. It can't come soon enough; it's a challenging year.

    This week was basically unplanned break for us due to the storms.....off Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday....only in school on Tuesday. This ripped apart half of our April spring break :(

    The kids just never believe me when I tell them that the teachers are looking forward to the break at least as much as they are.

    10 more teaching days until spring break. Our last day before break is March 23. A later spring break helps the last semester fly by.

    I cannot believe we are already this far into March. The school year is FLYING.

    I thought you meant countdown to summer :p. We have 2 weeks until spring break, but the 2nd week we have students Monday-Wednesday, conferences Thursday, and Friday off. After we get back from break, there will only be 7 weeks of school left!

    I thought you meant the final countdown too, lol. Our last day is May 22nd. Spring break is still up in the air, depending on the Ohio weather and if it cooperates or not.

    That nearly sounds like a new version of "The 12 Days of Christmas". ;)

    It will suck for you when you're back in school in August, and we're still lounging out until September.

    We had a scheduled break for the first week of April, but then we missed a week for the flu, multiple days for snow, and a day next week for the state basketball tournament. So . . . no break until the end of the school year for us.

    Ouch. I still have Spring Break to look forward to (which is 11 days long including weekends) and next week my school has two days off and a minimum day. I love it, haha!

    We go into the middle of June and also start in August. But we have a few more days off in the year because of that, which I like.

    I really enjoyed my two weeks for Christmas break. Don't know if I'll be ready to go back after Spring Break! ;) I'm already contemplating a different work schedule for next year!! Definitely looking forward to finishing 2nd week of June and having all of July off (I'm in Head Start). My program is year round. They offer Summer Camp, which is playing all day, water fun, field trips every Friday and videos twice a week! I can come back last week of August. That way, I'll have a fun week to get to know my kids before we start back to structured lesson plans.

    My year just got a day longer. We had a huge snowstorm last night, and it's still snowing really hard. My DH and I are both off work today.
