Thank you to everyone who came out to February’s E-CSLIT meeting. There was a crazy snowstorm that evening, but nothing can stop these amazing Catholic student leaders and their teachers!

February’s meeting was a bit different as it officially began at 5:00 p.m and ended at 6:30 p.m. Like always, it was an awesome meeting filled with fun games, dances, an awesome guest speaker, a teacher best practice, and much more!

Before our monthly E-CSLIT get-together, there was another meeting as student leaders all across Toronto came together to and discuss Camp Olympia 2013!!!

Big props to our Camp O Host Leaders:

Camp 1 – Student Leaders that participated on the Philippines Service Trip
Camp 2 – St. Kateri Tekawitha
Camp 3 – Holy Spirit

Every good meeting starts off with a ... DANCE!

What’s up E-CSLIT leaders and teachers.

Here’s your challenge for our next meeting happening on Thursday, February 7th @ the CEC.

NOTE THE TIME CHANGE
4:00 – 5:00 – Meeting for all schools going to Camp Olympia
5:00 – 6:30 – February E-CSLIT Meeting

Boat Challenge – create a boat solely out of a 12”x36” sheet of regular grade aluminum foil.  The boat needs to be able to be placed within a 13” diameter bucket.  The boat that can carry the most weight (in juice boxes, coins, and anything else we can find) wins the challenge.

Here’s some examples below………..use your creativity and ingenuity!

Remember…….E-CSLIT meeting starts @ 5pm on Thursday, Feb. 7……….but most of you are coming to Camp O so we’ll see you at 4pm.
