Pin It On the last day of school our faculty and staff say many a tearful goodbye to our cute kiddos, lock up the building, and gather at a local restaurant to celebrate the end of the school year.   Part of the celebration includes the introduction of our theme for the following year.  This theme comes from a book that we read together as a faculty over the summer.  I agree with our principal, "There is a great deal of power that comes from reading and discussing a book as a faculty."  Over the last six years, these books have helped to shaped the culture of our school.

I was intrigued when they passed out these vintage Mickey bags.

Inside was our summer read!  
 "The Disney Way"

Our school theme for 2015-16
 “I dream, I test my dreams against my beliefs, I dare to take risks, and I execute my vision to make those dreams come true.”
 -Walt Disney
I'm excited to read this book, share my "light-bulb" moments right here on my little blog, discuss it with my colleagues during professional development days, and implement some ideas from the "Disney Way" in my classroom next fall!   


  1. I love the idea of a faculty all reading and discussing the same book.Looks like a great book, can't wait to hear your 'light-bulb' moments!

  2. I love this idea! And I love Disney! I may have to pick this up! Can't wait to hear how this is working out for you!
