This is the first year our district has ever given us the entire week off for Thanksgiving, and I have to tell you, I'm loving it! Technically, though, we're not off. Today and tomorrow are "staff development" days, but they gave us the option of doing 12 hours this summer to substitute for these days. As you can imagine, 99.9% of us took advantage of that offer. :woot: To make things even sweeter, our principal canceled a staff meeting that she had scheduled on Friday afternoon and let us all go home 45 minutes early. I'm telling you, that's almost better than a bonus check.
