Year around calendars

I am reading all of these comments and feeling that if I worked at themiddle school or highschool level that I would agree whole heartedly witha year round schedule. However, as a preschool/elementary level teacher,this would not work. I work with at risk 3-5 year olds in a southern inner-city. My students lose many of the social things I have taught them eachweekend. There is a constant 2 steps forward one step back. The winterbreak means I almost have to start over from scratch. AS socialdevelopment becaomes less of an issue and school becomes more contentdriven I think this makes sense but, at the lower levels it doesn't makesense. OF course kids lose over the summer but, atleast you can build fromthe grouond up in th fall.
