This is what our scheduling of our school year. We start the end of July with reviewing the basics, and then in September we start the new grade level. School is a full day, five days a week. If she gets alot done by the 4th day then sometimes we have a short day on the 5th day. We have a break on November 15th for Jenna's birthday, Thanksgiving week we take 2 days off, December is at least a two or three week break, my birthday in February deserves a day off, lol, and then we take most of July off. Of course there will be days that come up that we may have to take off because life is unpredictable.
