At Grace Place for Children and Families our employees strongly believe in the power of education – and that does not end with our students. This week our employees began the new year participating in a two-day workshop on the highly-acclaimed book, 7 Habits of Highly Effective People that focused on developing and improving ourselves and strengthening our relationships in order to provide the most efficient and effective learning environment for our students.
“Only when people are sincerely and meaningfully involved are they willing to commit the best that is within them.” -Stephen Covey, 7 Habits of Highly Effective People
Our 2015 promise to you, our loyal supporters, is that we will continue our commitment to provide each child, parent and adult the quality services they need to flourish in their lives. Thank you for being a part of this important work and helping us help others through exceptional and educationally rich programs and opportunities.
NEW GRACE PLACE EVENT!
The Book Club is a series of intimate evenings held at the private Naples residences of our gracious hosts. Each evening will be themed around classic novels and authors. Patrons will enjoy delightful libations, hors d’oeuvres and stirring conversations.
The first of the three-part event series is “The Book Club, Mary Poppins,” on Friday, January 16, 2015. Followed by “The Book Club, At Home with Mark Twain,” on Tuesday, February 17, 2015 and the final evening of the 2015 series, “The Book Club, Boys in the Boat,” on Sunday, March 9, 2015.
*Space is limited. The Book Club series does not follow the traditional format of a book club. Patrons are welcome but not required to read the novels to attend as no formal discussion will take place.
