Step 1: Creating a school year calendar.
9 week quarters = 18 weeks per semester
2 semesters = 1 full school year
Our school days will consist of …
9 weeks on, 1 week off…
except at the end of the 1st semester,
where we will enjoy 3 weeks off for Christmas.
First Day of School: August 1st
Fall Break: Oct 3rd- 7th
Winter Break: Dec 10th- Jan 1st
Spring Break: March 6th – 10th
Last Day of School: May 12th
Note: we do not, in general, take typical school holidays off….
such as Veterans Day, Martin Luther King, President’s Day, etc…
instead we choose to spend that day to reflect on it’s purpose.
The exception being Thanksgiving week end.
Pretty easy peasy huh?
What type of school year would you choose?
Follow the public school calendar?
School year round?
Start later (like when colleges do)?
or like us, begin early, end early?
