    I can't believe it this year we get out December 23rd. :eek: Most of the other schools in our county get out the 18th. When do you get out for Winter break?

    Our last day is on the 18th. I almost wish that we went a couple of days longer--I like to have as much time as possible off after Christmas.

    Tuesday the 22nd is our last day... it's a full day, but we're taking an All-School Field Trip to see Fantastic Mr. Fox. (We have a "no candy" policy in our district and there were a lot of issues at Halloween, so they're trying to schedule an all-school activity to curb some of the parties and thus some of the candy issues)

    We're back to school on Wed. Jan 6.

    Our last day is also the 22nd. Our schedule, though, is:

    Chapel--8:30-9:15
    Christmas program practice--9:15-10:45
    Lunch--11:00-11:50

    Geography Bee--12:30
    All-School Sing-a-long--1:00
    Classroom Parties--1:30-3:00 (with recess thrown in)

    It shouldn't be too bad...We try to fill the day with as many activities as possible to keep the kids busy. I'm more worried about Monday. I try not to have tests on Mondays, so I'll probably wrap most units up Thursday or Friday. I think I'll fill Monday with Christmas activities (easy to do; I'm in a Christian school).

    Our last day of exams is December 22. If none of my kids is sick and needs to take the makeup, I'm done then.

    If I have to go in for the makeup, it's the 23rd.

    But I always tell them I would MUCH rather come in for an hour or two on the makeup day, than catch whatever they've got. So if they're sick, I heartily urge them to stay home.

    (Before you even ask: anyone who is SICK and misses the makeup arranges a makeup with the AP's office for either during the break or immediately afterwards.)

    We have to go through the 23rd and I hate it. I would much rather have off before Christmas than after - too much to do.

    We have a half day on the 18th (and the teachers get to leave as soon as the students are out) and we come back on the 4th with students on the 5th. I can't wait :D We have a strict candy policy too, but we get 3 exception days and the Christmas Party is one of them.

    Boo, we have to go 'til the 22nd. We are lucky it's not the 23rd. Last year, a group of students went to the super and asked to get out a day early--and he said YES!! We couldn't believe it. Maybe I should do some encouraging...;)

    Back on the 4th, students on the 5th.

    We go half days the 16th, 17th, and on the 18th we get out at 9:15. The high school has semester tests and we're bond to their schedules... happily!

    Our last day is Dec. 18th. Then we go back the 4th, but have semester exams that same week, so half days for most of the days.

    The high school I went to always had three weeks off and it was wonderful!

    We are out on the 18th and back on the 5th. We were supposed to get to have a workday on the 4th but they cut it due to possible budget cuts that are anticipated by the state.

    The kids leave early on the 17th and we have a Staff day on the 18th but I don't think he'll make us stay the whole day. Last year, he said we could leave when we were done with entering grades. I don't do online grades so I will probably clean up from all the holiday decorations in the room.

    We are off on the 18th.

    With my LTS coming to an end soon...I wish we were going longer. Can't imagine what life will be like that second week of January when I don't have to come to school and teach my....(now) favorite kids in the world.
