6th Grade Focuses on Virtue of the Month - "Courage"
As St. Raymond School focuses this year on character building, each month one class will adopt a virtue which they will discuss and present to the school. All the classes will be actively engaging with the virtue in class and at home throughout the month. Parents should take this opportunity to discuss the virtue with their child(ren), and stress the importance of good character development. Our 6th graders have taken on the first virtue which is COURAGE. They had the “courage” to act out this virtue for the student body in a number of short skits at morning assembly which illustrated ways to show courage and also how we can help others to be courageous.
The class read the following excerpt on courage at the end of their presentation:
I do the right think even if it is hard.
I do the right thing, even if others are not.
I tell the truth no matter what the consequences might be.
When I make a mistake, I courageously admit to it and learn from it.
I face my fears and challenges with confidence.
I am willing to try new things, even if I might fail.
I have goals and I courageously work towards these goals.
I have courage to help people who are in need.
I think of others, not just myself.
