Returning to School…

Returning to school after such a long vacation is rewarding and stressful all at once. It’s so lovely to re-connect with the community you have built for years and spend so much time with during the school year, after a time of rejuvenation. Then comes the meetings…and cleaning…and setting up…and the stress is back!

The reward is when all those shining faces arrive on the first day of school and you know all of your past (current/future) effort is beyond worth it.

This is what my first week at work looked like:

Day One-Monday

8:30-9:00-Whole faculty meeting

9:30-10:30-Primary Division Meeting

10:45-11:45-Intermediate Division Meeting and Grade One meeting


1:00-2:00 Grade 2 and Grade 4 Meetings (at the same time)

2:15-3:15 Grade K and Grade 3 Meetings

Day Two

8:30-10:00-Whole Faculty Meeting

11:30-12:30 Lunch

12:30-3:30 CPR/First-Aid Training

Day Three

8:30-10:30 Technology Meeting

Set-up time

Day Four

Set-up time in the morning

11:30-3:30 GSE Meeting

Day Five

Set-up time

10:00-5:00-Set-up time


12:00-6:00-Set-up time


Labor Day-Taking the day off! 🙂

In the next post, I will describe what it’s like to set-up the library after summer vacation.
