As we begin the new year as teachers and community members it is important to stay connected with our students and others around us. My school, as a part of the Adams 12 School District, sends out a weekly bulletin with wellness ideas and activities for ourselves and the families we work with. Here are a few ideas for the month of February:
Denver Public Library Challenge For Adults – Jan 2 – Feb 28
Denver Public Library’s Winter of Reading is a reading challenge like the Summer of Adventure, except it’s for adults 17 and over! You read and complete library-related activities, fill in those items in your brochure or through DPL’s Beanstack site (this year’s online challenge tracker) and then claim your prize. Simple yet sweet.
