@TeachFromHere @MrP_tchr yes, I love our October fall break. I wish everyone in our family had two weeks off then!

via Echofon in reply to TeachFromHere

@MrP_tchr yes, and the reality in many communities is that sports is a top priority for adults as well as many kids

via Echofon in reply to MrP_tchr

A7 There’s a lot of value in the rhythm of having a summer break from school

via Echofon

A7 just b/c school calendars were created for an agricultural age, doesn’t mean we should necessarily blow them up.

via Echofon

@MrP_tchr Sports camps, Scout camps, family travel vacations, etc

via Echofon in reply to MrP_tchr

@kasnelson you and @sfryer should become blogging accountability partners :-) she is wanting to do more as well

via Echofon in reply to kasnelson

A6 I like the “continuous learning calendar” approach of @OKCPS rather than a year round model

via Echofon

A6 if school became year round I fear many valuable nonacademic extracurricular activities would go by the wayside

via Echofon

@kasnelson I hope you will keep blogging your learning this summer!
