Once again, the Joel staff did a great job with Project Adventure.  The program provides students with the tools necessary to challenge themselves, in a safe environment, to grow by overcoming perceived limitations.  "When someone believes they can achieve, that belief plays a significant role in their success."

Joel celebrated Poem in Your Pocket Day on Thursday, April 14th.  Every April, on Poem in Your Pocket Day, people celebrate by selecting a poem, carrying it with them, and sharing it with others throughout the day at schools, bookstores, libraries, parks, workplaces, and on Twitter using the hashtag #pocketpoem.   Many thanks to Christine McGregor for organizing this fun, literary event.  Poetry is best when shared!
