    My summer is half over and, as usual, time is running away.

    So, I'll get this thread started for next year. Teachers in my school go back Aug 1 for a few days. We are then off until kids come back Aug 15.

    Teachers go back August 3rd, students first day is August 8th. I go back July 19th for summer grant work, then training on our evaluation system for a few days until my contract starts on July 28th (I'm a mentor teacher and part of the leadership team so I have to go back earlier than other teachers).

    I've only been finished since last Thursday, so I'm not even thinking yet about going back. Students start on the Tuesday after Labour Day, September 6th. We have no mandatory days before then. I'll be in for 2 days or so the week before we start.

    :(:cry:Me too. (Return in Mid-August.) I love my summer. I get kind of anxious about fitting everything I want to do in the world into two little months (even though this is obviously not realistic)!

    My school got a literacy grant this year and we have to go back one day earlier than everyone else, on August 4th. I'm not upset because we'll be paid for the extra day and I really need the money! Students start on August 11th.

    I have two training days later in July that I have to go to since I am getting a teacher resident. Again, not too bummed about that because I'm getting a stipend for having the resident.

    Teachers - August 15
    Students - August 24

    We have a lot of work days this year because we are moving into a newly constructed campus. I'll be in well before August 15 - whenever I can, which is rumored to be August 1st or so.

    After labor day for me. I got a week to myself, and I've been doing a full time job (more than full time) 5 days a week which will run 6 weeks. Then I think I get most of August to move and enjoy myself. But right now, I'm dog-tired and busy.

    Peregrin 5, I admire your dedication! Next year will you be teaching in Cali or Oregon? The reason I ask is because I remember how you were saying on another thread that you may be moving to Oregon. But if you do happen to move, Cali's loss is Oregon's gain!

    August 5th for teachers and August 8th for students. I feel like my summer is over because Monday I will begin a 12 day PD project including Saturdays, but we will receive a nice stipend. I have another PD on the 25th then the next few days are mine. I basically have my classroom in the order I want it except my parent letter, running off, and things of that nature.

    August 8 (Monday) for teachers, and that Thursday is 1st day of school. This is the first time we start on a Thursday, it's always been Monday. I love it! 2 days are perfect to get back into structure, then have a weekend to sleep it off and Monday really get going.
    We're moving schools, so I've already visited my new classroom, a bit overwhelmed how I want to set it up. I still need my things moved from the old classroom, so Monday I'm going to old school, put stickies on everything I want moved, then put stickies on everything I want out of new room and then I'll feel better :)

    Year 39. Not sure how many more I can do. Too much August heat to start each year. I heard you got a new job and/or school. I saw Ray C. retired.
