Every year around this time, grade 8 students are asked to reflect on their time here at MSOS and to share what they will value the most when they leave. There was a common theme in all their replies: lifelong friendships, building good character including respect for others, and a better understanding of and closeness to God. The purpose of this question is not to give them ONE more test ….But was to determine if WE, their educators, passed the final test. Two particular comments stood out:
“Being in a Catholic school showed me how to love God and see him in her everyday life. It has also taught me how to be a teachable lifelong learner.” Norah Jones
“Catholic education has helped me learn more about the stories from the Bible which then transpired into great conversations between me and my mom.” Harrison Jacquet
Thank you Graduates for reassuring us that we did pass the test. Now it is time for you to share your gifts and talents with the world and always remember that YOU are the GREATEST CREATIONS of God.
