The first E3 DEMONSTRATION SCHOOL SITE

I AM THRILLED TO ANNOUNCE E3’S FIRST DEMONSTRATION SCHOOL SITE THAT HAS TAKEN THE CONCEPT OF CULTURAL RESILIENCE OF 5 SKILLS TO FIT THE SCHOOL COMMUNITY.  SAINT RAPHAEL SCHOOL IS A (PRE-)K-8 CATHOLIC SCHOOL, LOCATED IN SAN RAFAEL, CALIFORNIA. SAINT RAPHAEL SCHOOL FOSTERS A CATHOLIC FAITH AND PROMOTES ACADEMIC EXCELLENCE AND LEADERSHIP SKILLS. SAINT RAPHAEL SCHOOL'S VERITAS PROGRAM HELPS STUDENTS IDENTIFY AND DEVELOP THE UNIQUE STRENGTHS THAT GOD HAS GIVEN THEM, SO THAT THEY CAN BUILD SELF-CONFIDENCE AND PURSUE THEIR HIGHEST LEVEL OF ACADEMIC SUCCESS. STUDENTS LEARN TO CULTIVATE FIVE 21ST CENTURY SKILLS FOR SUCCESS: INNOVATION, ADAPTABILITY, CRITICAL ANALYSIS, CROSS-CULTURAL COMMUNICATION, AND TEAMWORK. STUDENTS THEN HAVE THE ACADEMIC PREPARATION, LIFE SKILLS, AND CONFIDENCE TO FOLLOW THE SCHOOL MOTTO: "BE WHO GOD MEANT YOU TO BE AND YOU WILL SET THE WORLD ON FIRE." ~SAINT CATHERINE OF SIENA THE SCHOOL DEMONSTRATES THE VERITAS PROGRAM IN A VARIETY OF WAYS. TEACHERS INTEGRATE THE FIVE SKILLS INTO THEIR DAILY CURRICULUM, ALLOWING STUDENTS TO USE THE SKILLS TO INCREASE THEIR ACADEMIC SUCCESS. THE PRINCIPAL SHARES HOW THESE SKILLS ARE MANIFESTED AT SCHOOL THROUGH A MONTHLY NEWSLETTER. IN ADDITION, EACH FAMILIES USES A VERITAS HOME KIT TO DEVELOP AND RECOGNIZE WHEN THEY ARE USING THESE SKILLS AT HOME. EVERY QUARTER, FAMILIES HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY TO FURTHER STRENGTHEN THESE SKILLS AT HOME THROUGH HOME CHALLENGES.
