Here at STS we are fortunate to have God with us throughout our day. We begin each day with the Hail Mary and The Pledge of Allegiance. When we are taking a test, writing a research paper, studying Multiplication/Division facts, or learning the 7 continents and 5 oceans in our world, we can ask for His assistance without others questioning our motives. We are blessed to be able to attend Mass once a week and we get to be the Mass leaders every 5-6 weeks. When classmates have disagreements, we are able to use the phrase WWJD, What Would Jesus Do, and this leads to some great discussions as a whole group. Our academic standards are high, which is important, but I know our Faith helps to form our character, and in my opinion, CHARACTER COUNTS!
