We start school August 22nd here... and it's strange for a Canadian who never started before Labour Day...

Yep, that sounds about right. First week of August here for the year-round schools. Awesome, right? One more thing to put on my list of what I will NOT be missing about CPS. :)

Hopefully the schools have a/ you think the extra school days will raise our scores against the rest of the world, espec. math and sciences?

HA!!! Joanne's comment literally made me laugh out loud. I don't know about there, but HERE, no, there in no a/c. Well, except, of course, the principal's office. >:(

It's awesome that not only does school start the first week of August, it doesn't end until almost the last week of June, so we get the heat on both ends. Super groovy, right?

We're out by labor day.

The classrooms have a/c but the busses don't - so we will be encouraging them to drink lots of water.
