Joyful Endings

Joyful Endings

The last month of the school year is here, a school year that was dominated by the Covid-19 pandemic. Together, we made it through! We hope our monthly themes along with the resources we shared were helpful to you, and we always appreciate you reading our blog and chiming in on our social channels. As the summer is close and the school year comes to an end we thought Joyful Endings would be a great theme for this month. It's about finding joy in the moment, whether we're together in person or virtually, or even by ourselves. Joy can be found everywhere, anytime. We are excited to share great resources with you, and would love to hear what you're doing to find joy; connect with us on Facebook to share.
