"If you have faith the size of a mustard seed..."
This message from Jesus is a call to greater holiness. We live according to belief. We must believe in the graces of our Baptism and our hope of reaching Heaven and being future saints. Faith is required to trust God and believe that He will bring us to the greatness for which He has created us. In fifth grade, we will be growing academically and physically, but most importantly-spiritually. As we continue this year of practicing the virtue of faith as a school and a class, we are striving to foster the student's intellectual capacities while encouraging them to become the saints that they are meant to be. They should be stronger in their belief in God, but also in their belief in their gifts and capacity for knowledge.
Fifth Grade is packed full of excitement, adventure, and an abundance of learning. The fifth graders turn a corner regarding their level of responsibilities and come to understand the need for self-discipline. As the middle school grades approach, we are confident that the experiences at this grade level will give our students a firm foundation on which to build. We are grateful for the privilege of being with your students as they journey through this year.
God bless you and we look forward to an amazing year!
