GMRSD kicked off a staff wellness and #CommunityofLearners! campaign on January 9th running through February 3, 2023.   Each week faculty and staff were encouraged to participate in a range of health and wellness activities.  Beyond reminding our staff of taking time to engage in personal wellness, we also fostered a little friendly competition between buildings. The school team with the highest rate of participation for the week was awarded a traveling trophy.  In addition, all participants were entered into weekly drawings to receive gift cards. Our dear colleagues in Gill earned the traveling trophy for the first two weeks and our district central office team earned the trophy for week #3.   It remains to be seen, which team will earn the trophy for the fourth and final week of the wellness challenge! 

In addition to promoting staff wellness, we also wanted to recognize our amazing students and the wonderful learning that is taking place each day within our schools. We also included a  #CommunityofLearners! bonus challenge during this wellness campaign.  Teachers were invited to share out pictures of students engaged in learning within their classrooms.  Our students are at the center of our work each day, and the #CommunityofLearners! challenge was a fun way to celebrate the learning that takes place in our schools.   From preschool through high school, we have small schools, with big opportunities, we are GMRSD, we are a #CommunityofLearners!

We hope you are able to take a moment to enjoy this brief video created from some of the #CommunityofLearners! photos.
