5 more school days! Well technically 4 and 1/2! I've never been a fan of teachers publicly celebrating breaks, as I know it sends a bad message to those who aren't in education. BUT, I know we ALL are ready for some R&R!
The holiday season always seems just a little more crazy than the rest of the year. I have been so impressed by the consistent hard work you all are putting in, and you have definitely earned a break!
So let's go out with a bang this week and bring our best for our kids! They deserve it!
