Where community empowers public education

Joyful Book Group

Teachers at Chamisa continued their spring book club discussion of Joyful by Ingrid Fetell Lett.  The books were purchased through a wellness grant from LAPS Foundation.  Second grade teacher, Tricia Javernick said, “We really enjoyed the book and it was a perfect choice for this year!” Wellness grants were new for the 2019-2020 school year and are designed to promote a positive school culture, bring staff and/or students together, break down barriers, and build resiliency and/or connectedness.  Despite social distancing, this group of teachers found a way to continue connecting!
