    I go back to school today... I have a class this morning and then I go to my classroom and get ready for the kids. We have Meet The Teacher on Thursday and the students return next Monday. Anyone else starting next week?

    We were able to move into our building (brand new building :) ) this weekend so all of my stuff is now @ school, YEAH!!!! (it has been sitting in my living room, dining room and kitchen since the end of May). We can't go today or tomorrow but I will probably be going in Wednesday and Thursday to get some things organized. Our official preplanning start date is this Friday (7/24), Meet the Teacher is next Friday (7/31) and students come Monday (8/3).

    We go back mid-August, but next week I am at AVID training in Dallas, then I have two partial weeks of professional development, and after that I will be back in school.

    I can't get into my room until next Monday because they are using it for summer school! I usually spend time all through the summer in there, but have had to wait. GRRR! I don't officially start until Aug. 10th but like to get in there ahead of time to work at my own pace!

    There is one school district that is also starting up this week. They are on a modified plan. On for like three months, and then off for a month, I believe. The other district, the one I normally work for, is starting around August 10???? My summer is flown by and I still haven't gotten any rest!!! (taking a chemistry class at the college)

    I've been teaching most of this summer, although I have the next four weeks off. So I was on for the last month-opposite of you! I feel like I'm just starting my summer vacation!!

    Faculty meetings start two weeks from today--parent meetings are on August 7. The students come August 17. I moved classrooms and grades, so I've been popping in every so often to get some work done. I fell much more relaxed about it that way--and going on vacation next week.

    I tutor 5 x per week this summer so I swing by my school at least once a week to pick up resources, make copies. I stopped by today to drop off some books I got at a library sale and the new principal was in...(not exactly new- our principal and the middle school principal have switched jobs-not their idea...) so I popped in on him and welcomed him to our school...(I knew him not only from the district but he lives in my town, his daughter went to HS with my son)...So yeah, I'm on vacation but I never really stop working. ;)

    I've been trying to decide when I want to head back in. Our first official day back is Aug 5th and school starts Aug 11th. I had to change grades and rooms this year and I had to be out of my old room in only one day so I am sure unpacking will take forever. I might go in next week. Good luck to those starting sooner!

    We do not start until Sept. 8 but I am ready to get into the school and work on my room. I went to the school today and they told me that I can't be there until Aug. 23. I am so upset. I was going to start cleaning and going through things so I am not rushed again this year but I guess it is not going to happen.

    Next week

    I officially start back next Thursday (7/30), but I have 1/2 day training on 7/19. Kids start back 8/6, I think. I've already been to my room 3 times for 3-4 hours each time with my husband, 3 kids, and 2 nieces to help me. I moved rooms, and it was used for summer school, so I have a lot to do. My husband always takes a weeks vacation during preplanning to help me, so that makes it much easier (but this year he is out of a job due to budget cuts so he' s had plenty of time to help me!). I'm planning on spending most of tomorrow in my room too. I've got to get all of this stuff out of my house! Everyone have a great year, whenever you start!
