More School

Tuesday, November 15th, 2011

Tonight is the night our community is invited to “listen” in as our school board discusses YEAR ROUND SCHOOL. Also known as Balanced Calendar. It’s happening! I knew it was coming and like many other’s, I have mixed feelings. Mainly, the thought of a 2 1/2 month summer break ALL AT ONCE….umm, being no more!

I think I’ve mentioned a time or twenty how much I LOOOOOOVE SUMMER BREAK!!?!

What exactly does this new year-round setup involve? I’m not quite sure. I haven’t gotten the deets! I’ve heard some rumors of it over the last few years and it doesn’t seem horrible. Maybe something like–6 weeks of school with 2 weeks off?!?! Possibly?

I don’t know. I’ve heard information like blocks of school time with little chunks of off time. Off time = my favorite time! 😉

Any YEAR ROUNDERS out there? What do you think? Does it work? Do you like it? Are your kids succeeding because of it? Afterall, what else are we doing this for? To create a better education experience for our kids, right?

I’m not sure if I’ll attend the meeting. Either way, the vote won’t stop by my presence or lack thereof. I’ll be happy ….. just to have a job! As long as nothing changes in that area, I’m cool!

I mean……I’m not working for my health are you? {giggle}
