December 5th was E-CSLIT’s third face to face meeting! This month’s meeting consisted of 211 elementary student leaders, 61 teachers and a huge amount of fun! Superintendent Geoff Grant welcomed the students and teachers while Tim LeeLoy from Sharelife explained the importance of charity. With all that happened at the meeting, the guest speakers, the gift giving and challenges, teacher team building, all participants were sure to have a great time!

Here’s a quick re-cap of the meeting:
