You’ll have noticed GDD was closed the last week of August. We do this to 1) rejuvenate
our mind, body and spirit, 2) plan for exciting things to come in the winter and new year, 3)
promote team bonding, and 4) spiffy up the place. We rented a condo and spent a long
weekend in OC re-connecting through fun activities. Our goal was to remind ourselves that
everyone needs a break at times. Having fun reduces stress levels, promotes self-healing, and
balances stress hormones. It was great to see Ms. Maria “let her hair down” and have some
FUN! In addition, Ms. Stephanie and Ms. Christine did some brainstorming on new activities to
bring to GDD. Stay tuned for new things ahead!
