Back to School Yet?

Some of us return next week for training because our students come back the 24th. All this professional development that has to be done before the year starts! But with two months off, I suppose it is time to be ready for a new year. This time a new school and a new teaching position. So it should be an exciting year. Summer was great, and well needed, just time to return. Lezza

Not only do kids enjoy the arts, they are NECESSARY for human education and development.

I wish you the best with all those negotiations. I do hope you get great news. The arts seem to get hit the worse with this economy which is not fair. The kids enjoy those classes too! Best of luck Lezza.

My building has staff days September 1 & 2 - first day with students is the 3rd. We do a rolling start-up, with just our 6th graders on the third - 7th & 8th start the 4th, then we have a three day weekend. We usually start the Tuesday after Labor Day, but it is so late this year!

Of course, our contract is up, and we are in negotiations. Haven't heard a thing about how they are going, so I am hoping that is good news. Probably not, though. With the economy, there couldn't be a worse time for negotiations!
