School Calendar For 2010/2011 Calendar

This is the time of the year when I prepare for evaluations, and start next year planning. So I have already done next years calendar. I post this for my own personal record keeping, and also for anyone who homeschools, and wants to have an idea of how to make their own calendar. I do try to have our holidays the same as the public schools, so if the kids want to have friends over the days off coincide. Of course the calendar can be flexible to fit any needs you may have. You will also see that I have grading periods much like public schools. I do this because DJ went to public school for two years, and is used to the grading system so we just continued it. Not all homeschoolers grade their kids work though. I did change the calendar quite a bit this year. I took a lot of the days we had off this year, and made them half days, so that we actually do get something done. As DJ moves into harder and harder class work, we need all the classroom hours we can get, without having to do homework. This calendar does not include playdates, or field trip which are not planned this far in advance.

I try to do as much as I can ahead of time so I can relax over summer vacation.
