It does not seem as though there is such thing as a 'normal' school year. Each year is different than the previous as we are faced with different challenges and situations. While the school year itself can be drastically different from year to year, there are typically consistent calendar events within each school. These events begin with in-service and professional development days for teacher to get help ready for the year, which is followed by events such as holiday breaks, end of grading periods, and parent teacher conferences. These consistent events are the ones I chose to put on my timeline. However, there are always changes being made to our school calendar as each day can pose a new set of circumstances.
