Virtue of the Month - May


Perseverance is completing a project by doing it the right way despite the difficulty.  We believe that Jesus persevered in his way to the cross, and using his example we strive to persevere through out our own life.

SYMBOLS: Diamonds are formed at high temperatures & pressures and are beautifully created after billions of years.  Mountains have many peaks & valleys that make it difficult to climb up, but once on the top, the view is beautiful.

  • In the last bit of school, we finish the school year right.
  • Complete projects on time & are punctual.
  • We practice good habits to make them easier to do.
  • We don't quit or give up when things become hard.
