Mesa, Arizona Schools are Back in Session :)

City of Mesa, Arizona - southeast of Phoenix, AZDoesn't it seem like school starts earlier each year?  Now I'm about to sound really old, but...when I was a kid, we always started school at the beginning of September (right after Labor Day).  I'm definitely not complaining though.  After having my 12-year old and my 15-year old at home ALL DAY LONG for the past few months, I could not be happier that Mesa Public Schools started the 2007-2008 school year yesterday!  Don't get me wrong, I love my kids...but they were bored about two weeks into the summer.  Even swimming and hanging out with friends gets old after awhile, and the Arizona summers are so brutally hot, swimming is about the only activity they enjoyed outside.  There's plenty of other stuff to do during hot AZ summers, but it usually requires a ride from mom or dad, who are both working!

So last night, my kids and I sorted through a pile of 'classroom rules & policy' papers that had to be signed by student and parent. It definitely saddens me to realize that I no longer have a child in elementary school - one started junior high and the other started high school this year.  In fact, my oldest daughter is now attending the same high school from which my husband and I both graduated (Mountain View High School in Mesa, AZ)!  And my youngest daughter's new guidance counselor was also my husband's junior high teacher (eons and eons ago).  I guess it really is a small (and cruel) world afterall!

Whether you're moving to AZ or just interested in how your child's school compares, you can find report cards for Arizona's schools on the AZ Dept of Education's website.  It's easy to use and you can search by zip code, school or district.  And since many Valley schools start on different dates, below I've listed some Arizona public school start dates (mostly East Valley schools - sorry to those folks in the West Valley!):

I hope you and yours have a happy, safe 2007-2008 school year!
