Joy has been on our minds and on the agenda, as we all work toward the end of a third school year disrupted by a global pandemic. How do educators sustain themselves under the seemingly endless crush of challenges heaped upon them? What School Could Be would like to help. Thanks to a generous grant, Project Joy launched in January in the WSCB Community, offering yoga, mindfulness sessions, games, film screenings, and a space to share and celebrate your joys along the way, big and small.
Throughout the spring, Project Joy will offer:
- Mindfulness training and practice sessions
- Weekly yoga classes
- A monthly virtual screening of the film Mission Joy, the story of friendship between Archbishop Desmond Tutu and the Dalai Lama, followed by a facilitated conversation on including joy in our daily lives
- Weekly puzzles and challenges via our friends at BreakoutEDU, including training in game design
- A photo challenge with prizes awarded monthly
If you have any questions, please be in touch. And please do share this offering with colleagues who might benefit – there’s plenty of joy to go around!
