The rewards of an 11-month calendar are paying off right now. I just hit my third trimester, I need a little break, and here I am faced with two glorious weeks off. I do have a to-do list (come on, of course I do) but it's reasonable and manageable.
I hope my kiddos do okay on their first day of Intersession*. Some of them will be fine, but I know some of them won't know what hit them.
* for those of you that are not familiar, Intersession is a one to two week period at the end of every quarter, usually in October, January and March/April, during which students are able to take classes that are interactive, creative, and fun! If students opt to go to Intersessions, they pay a nominal fee to participate in classes such as dance, arts and crafts, cooking, storytelling, newspaper writing, or astronomy! Classes providing extra help in reading, writing and math are also available. (In full disclosure, I took these words from our website, they're not mine!)
