We are currently on Fall Break. We have a week this year for fall break...next year it will go to two weeks! our school system has gone to a balanced calender. Nine weeks on...2 weeks off. Hope you all have a wonderful week!!! More projects in the near future!!!!
Oh so green with envy am I! I hope our county moves to that schedule eventually. Enjoy the nice break with your little cuties.ReplyDelete
Brilliant - our terms can be anything from 8 to 12 weeks! We're just finishing our Spring break here in Australia, hope you enjoy yours! :)ReplyDelete
Enjoy your time off, Ted! Those two cutie pies will probably keep you movin' and groovin'!ReplyDelete
So jealous...wishing the East Coast/New England would move to that schedule. How does summer work? and do you put in 180 days of school, like we do here?ReplyDelete
We end school around May 25th...and teachers return around July 25th. Kids start back Aug 1st. It still is around 180 days.ReplyDelete
We're not balanced but we do have a fall break! It's called October Holiday and some might say it's China's equivalent of the 4th of July---a patriotic holiday celebrating the current government. We have an entire week of break so I traveled with some friends to Mongolia. Some years I'm anxious to rest at home after the month and a half (we start around Aug 10). Other years I go to a teachers conference in Beijing during that time. This year, a real vacation in another country was just what I needed! Now back to work until Thanksgiving, when I'm off to Thailand for this year's teachers conference. Then two weeks at Christmas, two weeks at Chinese New Year, a week at Easter, and a long weekend in May (Chinese Labor Day)---then suddenly it will be June again!ReplyDelete
