Catholic Values – Patience

Kinder A

“Better a patient man than a warrior, a man who controls his temper than one who takes a city.” Proverbs 16:32 It’s not always easy to have patience with one’s actions and thoughts. However, this student in Kinder A knows what it takes. His calm and collected attitude towards his peers is evidence of his patience.  He is always polite and tries his best to solve problems in a respectful way. He does a fantastic job at being a peacemaker when someone gets hurt or feels bad. His classmates can always count on him to have self-control in difficult moments and have a positive attitude. We are very proud and privileged to have Santiago Sanchez in our class family.

Kinder B

Patience is not the ability to wait but the ability to keep a good attitude while waiting. The student that has been selected by his peers shows a great deal of patience and trust in God’s time on a daily basis. He does not rush with his assignments and he always takes pride in any task that is given to him. He has been committed since the first day of school to always try his best with a positive and loving attitude. He always goes out of his way to help his peers.  He is a very loving and kind student who is well liked by all. For all these reasons the Kinder B class family is happy to present this month’s Catholic Value to Judah Souto. 

1st Grade A

Patience reminds us that it is worth waiting for good things and trusting in God’s time and plans. Patience enables Christians to wait with joy for the good things God wishes to give them in their lives. This patient young man is able to remain calm during difficult situations and not act out of frustration or anger. He is always patient with his friends while helping them. He is always willing to be there for them no matter how hard a task might be. He waits his turn, never complains and accepts what cannot be changed, and never gives up. His qualities make him a beautiful addition to our class family! First Grade A is honored to have Giovanni Griego as this month’s Catholic Value Winner.

1st Grade B

Patience is not only about the ability to wait but the ability to keep a good attitude while waiting. One student from 1B perfectly embodies what it means to be patient. He doesn’t rush through his work, he takes his time in all the things that he does and always keeps a smile on his face. Without patience we will learn less, see less, feel less, and hear less. First Grade B is so excited to give this award to Samuel Zapata.

2nd Grade

In life, there is a significant importance for patience.  Being patient is always a challenging task, but it is one of the best qualities a person can have.  The student chosen in our class family has an abundance of patience.  He is always reaching for the stars.  He doesn’t live in the future or in the past.  This student lives in the present – in the here and now.  It takes a great deal of patience to be able to do that.  He’s compassionate towards others, never rushes in his work, and takes the time to help others when needed.  The 2nd grade class is blessed to have him in our class family.  Please join me in congratulating Bernardo Santoro-Martins.

4th Grade A

“Patience is one of the humble, workaday virtues; but it is, in a real sense, the root and guardian of all virtues.” Nearly everyone recognizes a need for more patience at times. Patience is a fruit of God’s Spirit and an essential key to better relationships with God and fellow man. This student demonstrates patience daily. His actions speak louder than words. They show his genuine love and respect for other people. This student’s maturity and self-control at such a young age is extremely admirable. He comes to school ready and eager to learn and his positive and outgoing personality puts a smile on our faces each day. For these reasons and many more, 4A is proud to present this month’s Catholic Value award to Francisco Moscoso.

4th Grade B

Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up (Galatians 6:9).  Patience is the ability to remain the same, no matter what the circumstance may be.  This ability enables this student to fight the thoughts of fear and doubt.   She understands that practicing patience in everyday situations will not only make her life more enjoyable in the present, but will also pave the way for a more satisfying and successful future.  It is with great honor that 4B nominates Melissa Brauer as this month’s Catholic Value recipient.

She graciously waits for her turn and always exhibits compassion for those around her.
