Think Spring

An article in the Gloucester County Times today indicates that spring starts March 20 but references a meteorologist who says it can snow up to the second week of April. Let’s hope that we are done with snow.

As far as schools are concerned, spring should be here. Our high school spring sports have officially started practice – some as early as last Friday. We are ready for the warmer weather.

As we look ahead to the board meeting at the end of this month, the agenda will include the approval of the school calendar for the 2007-08 school year.

In addition, the board will formalize the changes to this year’s calendar due to the closings we had for snow. As I noted earlier in a post, the two days that we have to make up will be added to the end of the days scheduled in June.

And so – “think Spring!” Last Saturday’s fifty degree temperatures will be nice to return to -- permanently -- after such a cold February.
