Days 156-160

More of Project 365...
Tuesday, June 2nd - I took a picture of our never ending pile of dirty laundry that needs tending to.  There's only a few more days of work, so it will just have to wait!  Too busy now! 
Wednesday, June 3rd - It's one of those hectic mornings where I toss a glass of water and a Pop-Tart at Grant and say...hurry and eat.  He looks like he's not quite awake yet.
Thursday, June 4th - Hooray!  Last day of school!  This picture is taken at the end of the day for our outside celebration.  Our school has what looks like a small version of the opening and closing ceremonies at the Olympics.  The first day starts outside where the parents drop off and end 176 days later with the parents picking up outside.  It's a neat tradition!  
Friday, June 5th - It's a teacher work day where we clean up the classroom, organize files, look at the next year's list and eat at Applebee's.  Here's part of my fabulous team of kindergarten teachers:  Kristi Green, Kerry Boehler, Raette Bahe (who doesn't like her picture taken), Sherri Macfee and Krista Wells.  Not pictured:  Cindy Lloyd
Saturday, June 6th - Madison was invited to a Princess Tea Party to celebrate summer vacation at Princess Zanea's house.  What a fun party!  There were 22 girls present, which is incredible.  The Queen Mum (Xuan) did a remarkable job.  The invitation read "Princess attire is strongly suggested but not required to attend.  A light royal lunch will be served with the world's best teas and plenty of sweets!"  Isn't that the cutest?!

Wow seven Kdg teachers, that's a lot!!!!! Is your school all day kdg or 1/2 day?

Your life is so much more interesting than mine! Probably because you have three kids and a job and because my one kid can't crawl or walk yet! :)

Mamma---

We have six kindergarten classrooms with two teachers who "job share". That way they can both be part-time...one in the morning and one in the afternoon, which answers the full day/half day question too. This is the second year our building has had full day kindergarten.

It sounds like your school is about the same size as mine. We have 3 kdg teachers however they only go half days so that would equal out (only around 20 students per class). Including 3 preschool classrooms (or 6 again they go half day so 3 preschool teachers), we have around 8500 students (we only go to 5th grade).

Mamma--

We have about 630 students, I believe, but the majority are kindergarteners. So, nothing quite as big as yours. I think we had about 128 total kindergarteners this year, which will be considerably less since a new school is opening a few miles away. Our projected numbers for kindergarten will be about 100 next year, so we will be down one classroom. That extra teacher is going to move to the new elementary school, so we all still have jobs. Our school is a pre-k through 5th grade only.

The school system I work for is in one of the fastest growing counties in the state and tri state area. As soon as a school is built, it is at capacity. So even though we are only suppose to be around 750,our numbers keep growing (sorry notice I have too many zeros on my last entry). Guess that's better than having the opposite thing happening....
