Over Thanksgiving break, the teachers had a retreat at New Life Ranch. Organized by Mrs. Jackson and Ms. Hodges, our teachers had time to learn and bond with each other and it was a huge success. The theme of the event, “It Is Well,” promoted taking care of yourself in order to take care of others. Many teachers enjoyed this 3-day event full of rest, relaxation, and fun down-time. Activities included archery, hatchet throwing, trail hiking, and horseback riding. “Overall, the event was very relaxing and insightful,” said Mrs. Riley.
The workshop speakers’ topics encouraged teachers to optimize self-care. Mr. Kelly said, “Mrs. Jackson and Ms. Hodges did an excellent job of accomplishing the goal of rest and rejuvenation. There was a lot of bonding between colleagues and some really deep conversations.”
Special thanks to Mrs. Jackson and Ms. Hodges for their organizational efforts and to Valarie for designing the awesome T-Shirts and also to Kya and Val for putting together the swag bags full of fun surprises and gifts.
