Our Elementary soccer team and Coach Adalio Araujo (Señor) had the fabulous opportunity to travel to the Dominican Republic and face-off against several DR soccer teams.  Mr. Bornn, Head of School, was able to coordinate the international soccer event with Dr. Jaime-David Fernandez and Soterio Ramirez, the Minister and Vice Minister of Sports for the DR.

Our team returns home today with two wins and two losses to a very talented DR soccer program.

They have had a tremendous growth mindset experience where they encountered serious defeat, major challenges and learned there are better players out there than each and every one of them.

The test will now be do they have the grit to learn from this potentially life affecting experience. Please help them with the growth mindset and the development of grit.

Our school is better off for their journey. They made me and VIMSIA proud.
— Mr. Michael Bornn, Head of School, VIMSIA
