Welcome to the Joy Series

  1. Updates

Play is joy. Human connection is joy. Recess yards and playgrounds are a place where you will see smiles, hear laughter, and feel the joy that is associated with running, jumping, and playing.

As we enter the last month of another pandemic-ridden year, we are choosing to focus our energy on things that have brought abounding joy in 2021. Follow along for the next five weeks as we:



1. Recap the most joyful moments of 2021 and look forward to joyful moments of 2022 on our blog.







2. Hear Coach K’s story about what joy means to him in our December Newsletter (sign up for our monthly newsletter at the bottom of our Home page!)





3. Discuss the need for joyful play in schools and how to bring joy into the small, everyday moments on our LinkedIn page.






4. Highlight stories of what joy means to five New England coaches on our Instagram.





We are so excited to launch the Joy Series this holiday season, and we hope that you follow along and reflect on how joy shows up in your life.
