    I do not have the exact date yet, but I talked to the school counselor today and she thought it was around the 11th of June. This is the first year that our school is starting after Labor Day. The State of Michigan passed a law that goes into effect this school yeat that no public schools within the state can start prior to Labor Day. I guess that it's to help with the tourism industry.

    Apparently, last year our school exceeded the minimum number of school days allowed by the state so starting later in the year really isn't going to effect us much.

    School start on Friday Aug 11(half day ). We are usually out before Memorial Day though. Stephanie starts high school , I'm not sure I'm ready to be the mom of a high schooler though . On the bright side at my preschool we go back on the 21st and get kids on the 28th.

    Personally, I think they should start the kids later here in GA. It is way too hot for them to ride buses with no AC and sit in trailers with poor AC and go out to play in the HOT HOT HEAT!
    Nothing to countdown to, so just smile and be happy everyday!

    The reason they start beginning of Aug. is because of the school bd. here in Cherokee Co., dosen't like having the teachers waste so much time (8- 10 weeks) getting the kids back up to speed, to where they should be, so they can start getting them ready for state and national testing. My daughter, who is in 6th grade this year, told me that on the first day of school, the teachers were already talking about the national writing test and the GCRCT test (which is given in the spring). Remember "NO CHILD LEFT BEHIND".

    I really, really, really, dislike "no child left behind". Teachers can't teach kids how to think, they must teach to the test.
