Take Ten Gratitude Events

Take ten minutes (or more!) to unwind and connect.

As part of W&M Education Week, join us for daily afternoon activities designed to help students, faculty and staff de-stress and make deeper connections with the community. We'll have a series of activities and treats every afternoon, Monday through Thursday, to show gratitude for the extraordinary work that the practicing and aspiring educators in our community are doing.
