    I know summer may have just started for some of you....but what date to you all have to go back?

    I volunteered Aug. 16 for forms and fee day.
    Officially though, I need to go on August 20th for new teacher orientation week. (It's a whole week! 8 hours a day!)

    Regular teachers who aren't new to the district go back the 27th. I feel like my summer's over, but I still have some weeks left. I want to get into my new classroom next week and get it done so I can concentrate on curriculum though. I have so many books I should have read this summer to prepare that I didn't get to yet.

    Convocation for the high school English department is Friday, August 17th. Other departments are staggered over the next week, but we're the largest group of teachers and have the first shift to Common Core to plan.

    Our room has to be ready before the 6th, though. Our Open House is that night and we will be busy all day with inservice. (Unless you are good enough to finish it between 3 and 4:30. lol)

    I have new teacher orientation July 31st- August 3rd. I was surprised to see that it's four whole days, 8 hours a day...but, I get paid extra for those days which is nice. I'll gladly sit through meetings if you're going to pay me for it! Returning teachers start August 6th and kids start the 13th.

    I have no idea. Well, I know it is in mid-August. And, we go back on a Monday and see students on Wednesday. So, I have SOME idea. But, I'm not looking at a calendar until August.

    The first day of school for the kids is September 4th. Teachers need to be ready to go by then (obviously), but we don't have any mandatory days--we can use as much or as little time as we need the week before.

    Kids go back on September 4th. Not sure if we will have inservice days the week before, but we are allowed into our buildings on August 20th to set up. This is the first year we will go back this late.

    Preplanning - July 30th
    Open House - August 1
    Students - August 3

    I have to be back the 27th though for a Technology presentation.

    I am going to go over to school a couple of days next week (probably Monday and Thursday) and try and get some things done since I already know that we are going to have an enormous number of meetings so there won't be time to get the room ready unless I stay very late the 30 and 31st.

    Teachers go back August 20.
    Students come back August 27 for a half day.

    We have the option of joining another district for a three day conference they put on every year. I haven't heard anything more about it so I'm not sure if we're going or not. If so, then that will be August 14-16.

    While we do start on Aug 20, there is technically one more day of vacation during that week. This year our school calendar is very strange. Our Christmas vacation is cut up between 3 weeks rather than the two straight week that is normal. We are also going to have a few days of teacher workday - no kids during the year. That is something new. This pas year we just had two half days of that - still not sure how good that was all around.

    I go back on 8/1. Since I am a new teacher at this school (I have said a million times now, but in case someone has not seen, I am changing schools this school year), I have to go back two weeks before the kids actually start. My vacation was shorted because my last school we got out a week later than my new school, so this new school starts earlier, and I have to go in even earlier since I'm new to the school. But, even though I am not really in the mind-set of school quite yet, it is exciting because it's all new for me.
