    Seriously, is it me, or does it feel like July has flown by? *sigh*

    While I am juiced, now I am in a panic about getting it all done! LOL:lol:

    I go back for meetings on Aug 16 (in fact Aug 16, 17, 18 and Open house with parents/children on the 19th) and our first day of school is August 23. I guess I am glad that it is supposed to be a rainy week, so I can get a good chunk done!

    What about you? When do you go back?

    Teachers start one month from today - August 26. We have 2 staff days (one spiritual development as I'm in a Catholic school and one for meetings). Students start August 30.

    Its going fast! This summer was one of our shortest - exactly 8 weeks and 1 day of holidays for teachers.

    We NYC teachers go in September 7th. I can't believe how much earlier some school districts make teachers go in before kids. We only go in a day before the kids come.

    August 16-teachers
    August 23-students

    I will have to go get the room ready before Aug. 16. I think someone said we can't get in before Aug.9, and I'll be out of town until the11th!! We have Open House the week of Aug. 16, so it will be crunch time. We have to take everthing down, move furniture , put everything away and off the couners, etc., in June, so it is a lot of work.

    August 2 - teachers
    August 12 - students

    The summer has flown by... but, I have had 9 months off (we moved to a different state in November and I had a baby in December, so I took the rest of the school year off).

    I can't wait til we go back. This summer has been very relaxing. But I'm ready to teach! Perhaps its because this is my son's first summer staying at home with me. Aaahhhh. I've signed him up for a few camps because this whole staying at home thing does not work for us, lol.

    I taught summer school, so today is my first day of summer vacation. We can get started on our rooms August 17 (though I have to go earlier and move my classroom) and we have our first staff meeting on August 20. The students come for Orientation on August 24 and our first full day of school is August 25.

    I'm in AB too and I work with the CBE, but my school has a modified school year. I love the extra time off over Spring Break and Christmas (this year we get extra time off over Thanksgiving instead of Christmas to match up with other school with modified school years) but short summers suck.

    I didn't realize that there were schools that did modified year with CBE. Are you in a school that is strictly special education (E.F. School)? I got an opportunity to see that school and thought it was great. If I could live in Calgary (not a city person) I would love to work there.

    It technically ends August 10th, but school doesn't start until August 23rd. The summer dragged by for me, but I was working on grad school, which ends this Friday. I know I'm wishing away my summer but I can't wait til this summer session is over!
