And I'm sorry about that. I hope that you don't feel as if reading those 6 sentences (or semi-sentences) was a huge waste of your time. Time that you can't get back.

Today was the first teacher in-service day. (Although, I've been in the building since 8/1... HAVE to remember to vote on the early calendar next year...) Tomorrow we get a little more time to finish getting organized before the students arrive on Wednesday.
Students: see you soon. See you soon.
