Superintendent Sherri Ybarra had a great time getting her STEM on at the Idaho STEM Action Center's STEM Matters event at the State Capitol! Supt. Ybarra joined Idaho students, educators, legislators and visiting citizens in touring three floors worth of STEM activities, including tables hosted by the Idaho National Laboratory, The Reuseum, the Twiga Foundation's BLOCK Fest, and much more! Thank you Dr. Angela Hemingway and Idaho STEM Action Center for hosting this stellar event every year! Through fun, hands-on activities, STEM Matters exposes students to STEM industries and possible future careers! Who doesn't love being able to see raptors, virtual reality and high tech vehicles all in one place on the same day!?

Promoting family consciousness and wellness at home, in the workplace, and in the community. Twiga Foundation, Inc. believes family consciousness begins with an awareness that family is at the heart of our society.

More proactive than reactive, this awareness helps us understand that we can maximize our lives and find life in our work when we are conscious of our families – including care giving, individual and family health, community health and safety, education, transportation, environmental concerns, housing, career development, mobility, civic responsibility and many other areas that intersect our lives.

A Note from Jo on Wholeness | Magnolia

Such a great message on finding room for all of the things that are important to us.

"Whatever it might be that fills the scope of your life—marriage, kids, work, relationships, a project you’re devoted to, or all of the above—I truly believe that when we show up for the things we care for deeply with our whole selves, that’s where we’ll find the kind of meaning and fulfillment that can withstand any sort of shifting sand—no balance required."

First up was our spring theme of Authenticity, then Freedom for summer, and now we’re taking a closer look at Wholeness for fall. Here you can read Jo’s t...
