The Staff Enrichment Council is pleased to announce a new program beginning in January 2014: The Staff Reading Initiative!
The goal of this program is for interested staff to read a common book over the course of a semester, then meet to discuss the book and any ideas that the reading has brought up. Additional materials such as dicussion questions, links to interviews with the author, and related readings and videos will be distributed throughout the semester. We want to hear from you! Click here to RSVP.
