    Wow... I finished school an hour and a half ago!!!

    We always go back for meetings the Tuesday before Labor Day. Then we have 3 days of Frosh orientation. All the kids come in the day after Labor Day for a full day of school.

    Last day of regular school was May 29. Then summer school started June 1 and goes through June 30. We have two days at the beginning of August for some training. We oficially go back August 16 and school starts on the 23rd. When I think about it the time seems so short.

    Our meetings will be 8/2 and 8/3. Then we have a few scattered events (work nights, parent meetings) before kids start on 8/17.

    First day back (contractually): August 3
    Students' first day: August 6

    I finished up a class on June 3 (gifted endorsement), did an online PD, and a 2-day in class PD (June 16,17) for ActivBoard advanced training and am trying to figure out where June went. It seems like we just finished yesterday and it's already a month gone.

    Why do vacations go so fast?

    Teachers report in our county on July 26th and first student day back is August 2nd. We are on a "balanced" schedule where we get 8 weeks off for summer break and then every eight weeks during the school year we have a week long break added into regular holidays.
