    I feel like summer is flying by and I still have 6 weeks left. Just having too much fun I guess. When do you go back?

    The first day for students is September 3rd. We don't have any mandatory days before then, but I'll be in to set up as soon as our new building is ready--hopefully by the Wednesday before kids start.

    August 19 for the kids. August 15 and 16 are mandatory teacher days and August 8 and 9 is a mandatory training for new (going into year 1 or 2) teachers. TOO SOON!!!!!! I wish I had 6 weeks left! lol

    I have 1st year teacher workshops (I was a midyear hire after completing my internship in December, so I'm not brand new, but still considered a 1st year) on the 13th/14th of next month. Then we have some mandatory workdays the 15th, 16th, 19th-23rd. Kids come back the 26th.

    I am due with my baby the 19th, so it's pretty sketchy on when exactly I am going out. So, I will go back for some time, but will be out again for 2 months after that. So, my summer break is really an entire summer break this year :) If you want to call all nighters a break :) I plan on returning around Halloween/first week of November.

    Teachers go back on Aug. 12th and students arrive on the 15th. One of our days is training from 8:00-4:30 pm -- it's going to be awful...we do the same training every year and every year we only implement half of it because the other half doesn't apply to our students.:dizzy:

    I'm being sent to a curriculum meeting about 5 hours from home so my first day technically starts July 31st. All teachers go back for training August 5th - students are back August 21st.

    I feel like I had NO summer at all...too many things happened and it went by in such a blur.

    After I return from my honeymoon, I will have exactly two weeks to enjoy myself, then it's back to school. The kids come back on the 19th.

    I miss returning after Labor Day!!!!

    I'm excited! I transferred to a different school so I don't report back until Aug 20th. If I was at my old school still I would have been back Aug 1st! Thankful for last minute blessings!

    Teachers go back August 19. Students are back August 26. I taught Summer School for the first time this year so my summer feels especially short to me.
