This morning elementary students participated in their first spirit assembly since February 2020! It was so great to be together! At monthly spirit assemblies students pray, recite the Pledge of Allegiance, hear importance announcements, and recognize the Mountaineers of the Month before singing the fight song. At today’s assembly, Miss Watt also announced the winners of the monthly music award competition. Congratulations to all our Mountaineers who were recognized for living the virtue of charity this past month! #SemperAltius

Dominic Vicari

“Dominic has exemplified the virtue of charity all month.  In these three short weeks, Dominic has done many nice things to help his new classmates in JK.  He is genuinely concerned for the needs of his friends and always makes a point to congratulate his friends on their accomplishments. As a class we read “Have You Filled a Bucket Today?”, which described how easy it is to fill another person’s bucket with kindness and appreciation.  Dominic has also been a beautiful example all month of charity by paying daily compliments to everyone around him.” -Mrs. Reichert, Junior Kindergarten

Marcello Davila

“Marcello exemplifies the virtue of charity every day he is in the classroom. He is constantly looking to see who needs help with an assignment and goes to their aid without being asked. He is very Christ-like and puts the needs of others in front of his own.” -Mrs. Olinger, Third Grade

Peter Stencel

“Peter exemplifies the virtue of charity by sharing what he has with others. He frequently brings an extra snack just in case a classmate might need something to eat. He also shares his materials with those who need a pencil or a pen. His thoughtfulness is a blessing to the class.” -Mrs. Olinger, Third Grade

Emma Gulda

“Have you heard the saying, “Do the right thing even when no one is looking”? Well, this is how Emma lives each day. Emma consistently does the right thing every day. She completes her work to the best of her ability, she regularly participates in lessons, she is kind to others, and serves others; even when no one is looking. When a fellow classmate forgot his lunch, Emma gave him some of her lunch so that he wouldn’t be hungry. Other times, she offered food from her lunch when someone was just a little hungrier that day. Emma did not do these acts of kindness for attention or for praise. She just wanted to help others in need.” -Mrs. Motyka, Fourth Grade

Barbara Davila

“I wanted to nominate Barbara in my class for Mountaineer of the Month. She has exemplified the virtue of charity all month.  She is cheerful, positive-minded, and willing to change desks without hesitation when asked.” -Mr. Sapienza, Fifth Grade
