#MTBoSBlaugust Day 3: Getting ready for the school year (yesterday's post)

You know you're kinda crazy when you're willing to help an old co-worker out that is opening a new high school in a district unpack and inventory stuff rather than get ready for your own school year.

Those are of her classroom that she's going to be sharing and of just half the biology supplies that needed to be unpacked, inventoried, and then packed back up (because the storage room currently has a bunch of lab desks in them).  

While working with her it really made me think about all the things that go into opening a new campus that many administrators don't know or take into consideration since they've never had to do it before.  It got me thinking that more than just Principals, APs and Department heads should be involved in determining the hours, pay and time available to work in classrooms before the school year starts.

I'm curious how other schools, districts and states attack opening a new school and the supplies that stream in before school starts.  I hope everyone is gearing up for school smoothly!!!


  1. You are a good friend!! I am overwhelmed by the amount of stuff in those pictures, so I can't imagine what your friend is going through :( Best of luck to both of you!

    1. Thanks! It was a real shock to me too. (apparently she's been able to hide in the desks and get some other work done!). Good luck to you too this year!

  2. Thank you! I’m sure that opening a new school is a lot of hassle but I’m sure you’ve made the right choice when you chose to help your old co-worker. First of all, it’s your experience and you can see how things are done in the beginning. I think that it’s highly important to organize things in a right way and get ready as much as possible. You can’t keep all the necessary things in mind so you can create plans and list to succeed. Also you can visit EssayLab online to find interesting info for teachers and students.
