    Kids start August 10
    Teachers start August 5

    I will go back in about a week to start organizing and setting up my room so that I'm not rushing around to get it done at the last minute. I switched classrooms this year and have to sort through what was left behind in the room and put away all my stuff.

    Kids come back August 24, they give us a day and half paid to set up our room. Of course I'll be there before. I think our school opens to us like August 5.

    School starts Aug 24. I have new teacher orientation starting Aug 11 and then staff development after that. I'll be going down a few days in July to get my room ready.

    Kids start August 17th and we go back 13th.
    Our school is under renovation so I will be lucky to even be allowed in the school until Aug. 4th. I think our staff developments will mostly be allowing us to get our rooms ready!!

    Wow 10 days of professional development!! We use to get 6 but our legislature cut it back to just a day and half to save money! They were even thinking about not paying us to have a back to school faculty meeting!!

    Kids start 8/24 teachers start 8/17. I'm teaching at a reading camp the week of 8/3. I'll probably go up for a few hours on different days starting either next week or next week.

    Most of the week of the 17th is in service so I'll be back before that. Probably about a month from today and popping in and out.

    First 1/2 day=August 7th, First full day=August 11th

    I will probably go back around June 22nd to get my room ready. Like to try and get it ready as early as possible so I don't have to stress.

    We start back July 24th (first day of PD)
    Students come back August 3rd.

    I can't get into my classroom yet since we are waiting for it to be finished (new building). We are going on vacation this next weekend for a few days so hopefully by the time we get back the fire marshall will have cleared us for occupancy. I would love to have my dining room and living room back since everything had to come home with me this year. :)

    Kids start August 10th, pre-planning starts August 3rd. They are waxing the floors the week of July 13th, so I'll probably start setting up my room the week after. That will be the 1st week that I am finished with my grad classes for the summer, so it will be a good time to go in.

    Back to school meeting starts 8/31
    Freshman Orientation starts 9/1
    Classes start 9/8

    I'm going back for that first day of meetings, then having surgery on 9/1. I'm sincerely hoping to only be out that first week, but I'll see what the surgeon says.

    We go back August 31 and the kids begin after Labor Day.
    I plan to start going back in mid August to get my room unpacked. Why do they make us pack it all up just to unpack again in the same room? That's the real pain of going back!!

    I go back on August 10th and the students start on August 17th. I work in a school with a modified school year and I only get 6 weeks of summer holidays:(.

    I am hoping to go back earlier b/c we just moved our school and the entire school is in boxes in the gym as they are still doing renovations.

    Congrats Shasha! I wish I could say the same, but this is just my 1st semester...I'll be done next summer, if I make it through the school year with all this work.

    I've already started to do little things in my class. I went Monday for about five hours and I will go back for about three or four hours tomorrow. I am doing a lot of changes in my class this year, so I needed to start early. I like to take a few days for myself in August.
