Principals Weekly Letter

Updated September

September 29th, 2017

Dear Parents,

Twenty years ago a friend asked me if I would talk to a mother’s group about forming children in virtue. I can still recall the look on her face when I said, “You mean values, right?” She was quick to point out that values are subjective ways of thinking and are different for different people based on their upbringing, culture, and lifestyle. Virtues are habits that are objectively “good” in all circumstances and for all people. This quick correction began my education about the formation of virtue in our children.

The Catechism of the Catholic Church teaches us that virtue is, “an habitual and firm disposition to do the good. It allows the person not only to perform good acts, but to give the best of himself.” It then goes on to explain virtue as, “Whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is gracious, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things. – CCC 1803.

During the month of September our students worked on the virtue of Goodness, which helps us look at others with love and give special consideration to their happiness. The month of October will be dedicated to Gratitude, Gratitude, the virtue that helps make us aware of the gifts we receive each day and appreciative of the giver. This virtue is especially important in helping our students look beyond themselves to the needs of others. A grateful heart is a happy heart, regardless of the circumstances.

We’ll practice the virtue of gratitude in many ways with our students during the month of October. One particular way will be to pause for Gratitude Moments. Gratitude Moments will be random times throughout the school day when we ask our students to pause and name what we are grateful for at that at that very moment very moment, no matter how small the item. To help strengthen our efforts, please practice this at home, too! If a child needs help with this exercise, provide some initial suggestions like, “I’m grateful for shoes on this cold sidewalk.” “I’m grateful for the lunch I had today.” I’m grateful that I have a house to be in right now.’ “I’m grateful that my sore ankle isn’t hurting anymore.” The list can go on forever because if we really pause to think for a moment ourselves, the blessings we are given are limitless. The very air we breathe is a gift that is given to us freely from God. Let’s pause each day to help our children learn the valuable virtue of gratitude.

 

In Christ,

Ann Coone, Principal
