    Any of you going to school during your Spring Break? I wanted to go to school today (last day of spring break) but I slept in wayyy too late. So I think I'm going to go tomorrow but I don't want to!!! But there is so much that needs to get done. :(

    I started my Spring Break today - I know I will be going to school at least once. I need to go more than once but I also need a break. I hope you enjoyed your time off.

    I also started my spring break today. I think I will go to school one day and that's just really to clean up my desk and start packing a little bit. I know one teacher will be there, so I'll see when she's going to be there. I hate dealing with the alarm. I'm terrified that I will set it off. I'm surprised that your spring break is almost over. I thought ours came way too early. I thought they were more like in the beginning of april??????? Or am I way off?

    Our Spring break is usually a week later I think. We don't have anymore days off until the last day of school (May 22 for kids) so I'm definitely doing to be taking a Mental Health day or two!!

    We have Monday off as well, but this is more or less the end for me too. I did not go to school! My goal was to resist going to school or working on too much stuff over the break. I really needed it and it is the first break that I did not work on something. I have been on the boards and I have been buying a few things for the classroom, but no real work. It helps that we had a half day of planning time just before the break and I stayed late the Thursday before break to get ready to leave:), the Friday before spring break I kept everything low key and left right on time (we leave right after the kids on Fridays).

    My spring break isn't until April. I will bring some things home to work on but not going to school. Teachers need time to rejuvenate- at least I do. I have enough to take care of at home that I leave piling up during work weeks. Plus I like to take a pamper day- get a pedicure, massage, whatever. Go to lunch with a friend I haven't seen in a while. Read. Sleep late. Exercise. Work in the garden. Make my family a great dinner. Spend time with my family. Sit on my porch and read the newspaper with a cup of tea....Nope, not going to school.

    I will be going to school on Monday. My spring break started on Friday. I have the whole week off. I will ONLY go one day and then I'm done. I will finish up a few things, clean, and start to pack a lil bit. Then again I will be spending the rest of the time at my apt. cleaning, organizing, and begin packing there as well.

    We are on Autumn break (end of term 1) and, for the first time in a couple of years, I won't be going in to school. We are going away for a holiday so the choice has been made for me - I just hope I don't regret it when term 2 starts!

    My Spring break is in April, but I won't be going to school. I need time to relax and do something with my messy house before the dept of health steps in :lol:

    I went into school one day this week, I would have gone more, but I've been sick the entire break! I completely rearranged my room set-up, I decided it was time for something new!

    I brought home papers to correct and I have a weather/geography unit to finish planning so I've got plenty to do, but I won't be going in to school. My room is all set up for the Monday we come back from vacation.

    I stayed 3 hours late on Thursday (our last day before break) to do lesson plans for the week we come back and straighten things up/catch up on filing. I did bring my grade cards and all of my assessment data home (we have to turn in grade cards the week we get back). I hope to spend no more than one afternoon working on those.

    Finally, a chance to focus on my home and family! Having my plans done is allowing me to stop thinking about school 24/7.

    Nope, I'm not going in. My room is a wreck right now, but then again, so am I. I need a serious break. You have to take care of yourself too, ya know. I will probably just suffer through my first day back & stay late that afternoon to get my room back in shape.

    Nope, not going in. Not doing it. No, no, no...:unsure:


    My classroom is set up for Monday, and my house is a wreck. I'm going to play with my own kids and enjoy! This year is going by so fast.

    Ok - I went in once. I had tons of new stuff for my room and I did not want to have to haul it all in the first morning back, so I went to drop it off and stayed an hour and a half :eek: Oh well - I tried!

    I was planning on going in to work for one morning this week, but when I got there, I found out they were waxing the floor of my room. All my stuff was in storage...there goes my plan for leaving everything at work, now I can't do anything. I just wanted to work on April plans.

    I'm pretty sure most of the teachers in AZ are thinking the same thing because we are all in the same boat!! I am actually planning a personal day with friends, which is horrible I know, but 8 weeks is a VERY long stretch of time to go without a break.

    Spring break? What's that? I work at a college (we still work during breaks) and then the LTS job I have will still be going and I still have my college class to take. So I'm very unfamiliar with this Spring Break business...I wish I wasn't!!! :(

    Spring Break starts Monday for us. I plan on going in one day to tidy up the closet (its a bit scary in there) and get things set for the Monday we are back. I also plan to go get a massage and clean up at home, and maybe head to the beach if the weather is good.
