We are excited to roll out our calendar for the 2012-2013 school year. I’d like to take the opportunity to point out some features and highlights of the calendar:
- The 180-day school year will begin on Thursday, August 9th, 2012 and end on Thursday, May 23rd, 2013. The start date differs from the one indicated on our current calendar, for reasons that are discussed below.
- In addition to regular holidays - Labor Day, Veteran's Day, Thanksgiving Day, Winter Break, Martin Luther King Day, Rodeo Break and Spring Break - we've added a two-day Fall Break in mid-October. In addition, we will begin the Winter Break on Friday, December 21 and Spring Break will include Monday, April 1, the day after Easter.
- We will have a total of eight half days -- two for parent-teacher conferences (October 17 and 18), one for an end of quarter teacher grading day and five for staff development.
- The first two days of school, August 9th and 10th will once again be designated as Champion Days. We will spend our time getting to know one another, building culture and community, reinforcing our expectations for manners and respect, and working on anti-bullying activities together. As we saw last year, these first days of school are helpful to all of us in meeting our goal of social excellence and establishing a great climate for the school year. We will once again have a Champion Day on January 7th, when we return from the Winter Break.
If you have any questions about the calendar, please feel free to contact me.
