Teaching is a stressful job, which means we need to be intentional about building relationships and having fun with colleagues. Best Week Ever is a simple yet powerful way to build community among staff around a variety of events throughout one week.
Schools who have tried it are finding:
“People that don't ever talk to each other are laughing and smiling and having a great time...We should do this three times a year...it’s super easy!!”
“I got to school ½ hour early and the parking lot was full. Also, there is not a single staff person absent today--my staff is loving this!”
“I can't believe how many people came to our meeting we had yesterday to explain it! We will do more activities in a week than we have done in 10 years here!”
The 46 pages of the Best Week Ever Coordinator's Handbook provide all the information you need to host your own Best Week Ever. Find out more about where it came from and how it works, a super simple way to organize your own BWE with only one 20 minute meeting, and resources for event ideas and directions for everything.
Check out the companion resource, the Best Week Ever fill-in-the-blank rule book, which is referred to in the handbook.
