There are plenty of wonderful things we can say about our chosen classmate; however, the most valued characteristic is his honesty. Someone once wrote that “integrity is choosing your thoughts and actions based on values rather than personal gain.” This student tells the truth no matter what. He doesn’t gain anything from it. He even tells the truth knowing that he might get in trouble. His values are exceptional – and for that – we thank the parents. God wanted all of us to be honest with each other and with ourselves. This student exemplifies this behavior in our classroom every day. We are very blessed to have him as a part of our class family! The second grade class is proud congratulate Daniel Auza.

“I will have the moral courage to make my actions consistent with my knowledge of right and wrong” Job 27:5Although it is a challenge sometimes to do the right thing, this student always falls back on her morals and has the courage and integrity to go the right way. In this day and age, being honest is a very difficult road – but through it all, her moral compass always faces due north and guides her to the path of righteousness. This young lady has proven throughout the school year to be truly honest with an immense amount of integrity. A true sign of the virtue of honesty is when you can be honest with yourself. She readily admits and accepts when she is at fault and makes no excuses. She truly embodies the quote that Mother Teresa once said, “Honesty and transparency make you vulnerable. Be honest and transparent anyway.” Class 3A is proud to announce this month’s Catholic Value Winner: Melissa Brauer.
3rd Grade “B”
“To do what is right and just is more acceptable to the Lord than sacrifice” (Proverbs 21:3) Honesty and integrity grow from an inner strength and confidence that is raised by demanding trustworthiness and truthfulness. In our classroom, there is a student who is honest, trustworthy, and truthful. She honors commitments and keeps promises. She accepts responsibility for her own mistakes even when she knows someone might be angry and disappointed. She cares about the work and a job well done, and not just about what she personally will get out of it in terms of recognition or advancement. She shows honesty and integrity everyday by being true to herself and doing what she knows is right. It is with great honor that 3B nominates Marcella Morello for this month’s Catholic Value.
As William Shakespeare once said, “No legacy is so rich as honesty.” When you are honest, you build strength of character that will allow you to be of great service to God and others. Closely associated with honesty is integrity. Integrity means thinking and doing what is right at all times, no matter what the consequences. When you have integrity, you are willing to live by your standards and beliefs even when no one is watching. This month’s Catholic Value winner truly exemplifies honesty and integrity in her every act and deed. She is honest with herself and everyone around her. She is not scared to be honest because she knows that it is the right thing to do. Her genuine and sincere honesty are both beautiful and admirable. The fourth grade class is proud to award this month’s Catholic Value to Maria Romagnoli.
