    Oh my gosh, how awful! Does your school have a check-out procedure at the end? We are given a checklist of things that need to be completed and they get signed off before you can leave on the last day. Leaving "seasonal" bulletin boards and the amounts of push pins and staples you're describing would not have the room ready for check-out.I am also wondering if your principal ever came in and looked around the room during the weeks you were gone. Somebody who still was displaying Christmas and Thanksgiving bulletin boards when it was May or June would raise a red flag in our district. I'm glad your hubby was available to help. I always find that the first day or two I go in to my classroom, it looks worse before it gets better. I plan on having to re-arrange furniture, unpack supplies, get the grade level supplies divided and distributed etc. before I can put up bulletin boards and the room will take shape. They did summer school in our building this year, so the janitors will first be starting to clean this week. I can't wait to go in, (if for no other reason than to get rid of the piles of "school" stuff in my house), but I don't see myself being able to until at least a week from Monday. We don't start till late this year because of construction, so I still have time, but I am going on a week's vacation the 18th, so I will lose that time. The one thing I know after all these years is that it always gets done. Some years are just harder than others.
