Pizza Time!! Pizza is followed by our challenge.  Students were tasked with building tin foil boats that could hold pennies and still float.  We had some impressive results!!

Congratulations to St. Jude who won the challenge.  They filled up their boat with 340 pennies!!

Last but not least, we get an inspiring talk from Glendale Reyes from The Learning Partnership. Glen spoke to the students about an overlooked leadership skill – storytelling.

“The best way to communicate is to tell stories.  Have an idea of where you want to go.  Communicate that vision.”
– Glendale Reyes

After an ECSLIT online challenge we had 4 schools that tied. So to break the tie, we played this minute to win it game. 

Congrats to St. Ursula!  They won tickets to the AFL Gala on November 10th, 2017.

 

We would like to give a big thank you to all of the schools who donated to the Puerto Rico Relief efforts!! Without all of your support, this would not have been possible. Thank you ECSLIT for putting our faith into action!
