Our Education Foundation
Practicing the Pillars
During the year we cover the Pillars of Character, this year we are also talking about the Habits of Mind: The Habits of Mind are an identified set of 16 problem solving, life related skills, necessary to effectively operate in society and promote strategic reasoning, insightfulness, perseverance, creativity and craftsmanship. The understanding and application of these 16 Habits of Mind serve to provide the individual with skills to work through real life situations that equip that person to respond using awareness (cues), thought, and intentional strategy in order to gain a positive outcome.
Ask your child about how they are demonstrating these traits!

Sandpiper Droids & Rainforest Panthers collaborate to win the Sacred Heart Vex IQ Tournament
Congratulations to Allen, Cheery, Arie, Ethan, Ryan, Julian, Jason from the Sandpiper Droids for teaming up with Joey (also a Sandpiper student), Martin, Arush, Akshita and Satoru from the Rainforest Panthers for winning the Sacred Heart Tournament. The two teams rose to the top of the Team Challenge event by scoring 55 points. They needed to beat the established score of 54 to win. As you can see by the video above it took every second of collaboration to balance on the bridge at the end. Balancing on the bridge is worth 25 points. Amazing job by these two teams!
