Our "Year-Round" School Calendar

June 19th, 2009 (10:46 pm)

I should have posted this one earlier in the week, but I didn't think of it until my husband posted a link to it on his Facebook page. It's an article written by a Washington Post writer who is the mother of a child at my son's elementary school. It's about our school's Modified Calendar, sometimes called a "year-round" school schedule.
Technically, it's not year-round. We're off for summer break next Wednesday, same as all the Alexandria schools with traditional schedules. But our break is shorter than on the traditional schedules; our kids go back to school August 3. We love our calendar! I'll let you read Brigid's reasons why.

(With apologies to those who've already seen this on Bob's Facebook posting.)
