This student has a big heart that he loves to share with others. He goes out of his way to show his love to all his friends and classmates. He always has a smile on his face and loves to make jokes to spread laughter and joy to his classmates. He has a loving way that makes his classmates feel special.

2nd Grade

Someone once wrote: “Love is not written on paper, for paper can be erased. Nor is it etched on stone, for stone can be broken. But it is inscribed on a heart and there it shall remain forever.” The following student has shown unconditional love in our class family.  She always sees the good in others and never once turns her back on a classmate.  This student always puts others before herself.  Most importantly, she loves like God intended her to love.  The second grade class family would like to congratulate Victoria Ballestas.

3nd Grade “A”

Mother Teresa said so many beautiful quotes on the virtue of “Love” so it was very difficult to pick one that described this student, until I read this: “I’m a little pencil in the hand of God, who is sending a love letter to the world”. This student’s every day actions illustrate perfectly how she is God’s pencil. She is always smiling, always helping, always caring, always giving, and always loving. Every little thing she does comes with such a selfless loving kindness that it puts a lasting smile on your face all day long. Her sincerity, commitment and love to God and others is truly an inspiration.  She is always in a pleasant sweet mood and greets everyone with a loving warm smile that emanates from her soul. We are better people for having her in our class. 3A is proud to announce Vanessa Londono as our Catholic Value winner.

3rd Grade “B”

If we love God with all our heart, we will love our neighbor as ourselves (Matthew 22:37–39). The knowledge that God loves us beyond all limits compel us to go into the world to love others in the same way.   3B is blessed to have a student who shows her love for God through actions, obedience, kindness, and faithfulness.  In the same way, she shows love for others by saying kind words, smiling, or lending a helping hand.  She models for us that real love is about what we do and say, not just about what we feel.  This student knows that unconditional love is a conscious decision she makes every day and in every new situation that comes along. There are no rules laid out for everyone, she applies it person by person.  She cares for others without limitations and love others without conditions. It is with great satisfaction that 3B nominates Aya Bardawil as this month Catholic Value recipient.

4th Grade

Love is a core Catholic value. Catholic love means affection, compassion, good-will, and concern for the welfare of others. It is deliberate, purposeful love rather than emotional or impulsive love. This student truly exemplifies Catholic Love. One classmate shared that this student is always smiling and gives compliments regularly to her friends. This student always has a positive attitude towards life and every person that crosses her path. As her teacher, not a day goes by that this student doesn’t give me a hug and a compliment whether it is about my clothes, a lesson I have taught, or just a simple I love you. She is kind-hearted by nature and self-less out of her own good will, not for praise or rewards. This student is an absolute pleasure to have in class.  This month’s Catholic Value award goes to Juliette Egea.

5th Grade

Let us love one another, for love comes from God.  Everyone who loves has been born of God and knows God, as said in John 4:7.  The student the 5th grade chose is nice, cheerful, sweet, caring, and always will to give a helping hand.  She is always making the class laugh and has a beautiful voice that we all admire.  She shows the true meaning of love towards others. She is never selfish and always willing to comfort her classmates.  The 5th grade class is happy to acknowledged Leandra Obando.

6th Grade

God’s love for us is unconditional. God says that we are all his children and we should act like brothers and sisters. This belief encourages respectful and loving behavior, because we are all one family in God’s eyes. This student’s loving nature encourages unity and safety in the classroom. Her fellow classmates describe her as easy going and cheerful. The 6th grade class is delighted to award Daniela Del Valle with this month’s Christian Value Award.

7th Grade

Corinthians 13;13 And now these three remain: faith, hope, and love; but the greatest of these is love. She has been described as loving, and friendly by her classmates. She always has a smile on her face and makes others laugh. Her love is truly contagious. For these reasons and more, our class family has chosen Angel Avedo as our Catholic Values winner.
