A year-long project for our 4th grade classes, TOMS One for One, has so many layers of learning. It is a multi-subject, interdisciplinary initiative to study the company TOMS, famous for giving one pair of shoes to someone in need for each pair it sells. The key lesson learned is that you (anyone, kids included) can build a business, a life, a product, or a service and be very successful, while at the same time, giving back to those in need.
A special Q & A appeared in The Florida Villager. The editor of the magazine asked head of school, Lillian Issa, and director of admission and enrollment management, Debby Lichtner, some key questions about what makes St. Thomas special.
The Right Reverend Peter Eaton, Bishop Diocese of Southeast Florida, along with more than 500 members of the St. Thomas Episcopal Parish Church and School community, participated in the formal installation of Mrs. Lillian Issa as the 8th Head of School on Sunday, October 16.
