    Last day the 19th and back on the 3rd. I agree with moonbeamsinajar...not long enough. However when I return I will have a brand new computer w/ a 19" monitor, a document camera, a smart board and a sound reinforcement system so returning on the 3rd won't be to bad!

    I had a half day today and will have another half day tomorrow and then we're off until the 2nd for teachers and 3rd for kids. We're off from the 15th to the 2nd only because they thought we were going to be moving into our new school. We'll be moving over spring break instead.

    Well, public school here (Sydney, New South Wales, Australia) breaks up on the 21st December and returns on 29th January. Many private schools (like the school I am going to be starting to work at next year, and my daughters school) broke up on 7th December and will return 29th January. These are our summer holidays. I've been substituting so Monday (18th) is the last day I could possibly be called in.
