This Tuesday, November 27, is Giving Tuesday -- and I just wanted to make sure you mark your calendar now, so you don't forget one of the most important giving days of the year! Please consider giving to the Annual Fund of TASIS Dorado to help us continue our pursuit of excellence. For instance, you could designate your gift towards teacher professional development or the Scholarship Fund. Each year, we award about $250,000 in full scholarships for students who would not otherwise have access to a TASIS Dorado education -- a transformational opportunity for eager young people with limited resources.

As we approach Thanksgiving, have you wondered what there is to be thankful for in the midst of such hardship and suffering in Puerto Rico? No doubt, we are looking forward to a feast of food. Food and water were especially scarce in the first weeks after Hurricane Maria, before supplies started to arrive. One man said to me in the early weeks, "We had a can of corned beef last night. It tasted like churrasco!"
