Year-round schooling is my jam. For real.
We are gearing up for our 2017-18 school year. This is our last full week of summer and while we are soaking up the fun, we are also prepping for what’s next.
I choose to follow a year round schedule because it makes all of our lives easier. Seriously. Here’s our yearly breakdown.
- Summer session: July 24-Aug 4
- Fall 1: Aug 28-Sept 29
- Fall 2: October 9-Nov. 17
- Advent: Nov 27-Dec 15
- Winter 1: Jan 8-Feb 9
- Winter 2: Feb 19-March 29
- Spring: April 9-May 25
The mini-summer session allows us to have 10 full weeks of vacation throughout the school year and still get in enough teaching weeks. Doesn’t work for everybody, but I need the big breaks!
The kids honestly don’t mind the summer session- it’s just 2 weeks of setting down the basics so when we begin in August everybody’s ready to go.
It will be a big change this year having everyone home but I’m really looking forward to living a one-piece life, not scattered trying to keep all the plates spinning. I’m clearly not imagining an easy year ahead but I’m grateful we’ll get to do it together!
