Thank you to all the schools that attended our first E-CSLIT meeting of the 2013-14 school year!!!  We had a packed house with close to 40 schools in attendance.  Big thanks to our Director of Education Angela Gauthier for giving us our official welcome to the new school year.

Here’s a summary of what happened.

Student Leaders and their teachers from close to 40 different schools anxiously wait for the beginning of the meeting

Student Leaders get active as Marivic leads them in an icebreaker – despite the space limitations we made it work and it was super fun!
Angela Gauthier the Director of Education gives us some words of wisdom about what makes a leader, her vision of Elementary Student Leadership, and thanks our fabulous E-CSLIT teachers for their commitment.

Michael Consul gives his monthly virtue speech on Gratitude.  No picture 😦 (He was holding the camera!)

Students all get a gratitude rock to help remind them of all the wonder blessings that God has brought into their lives.

Each student chose their own powerful word to write on their gratitude rock.


Now to our guest speakers:

Our guest speakers from Read to Rap teach us the importance of being on time and putting our best foot forward.
Student Leaders volunteer to write and perform their own rap! They were awesome!
These leaders are ready for a record deal!
