Blue Angel Student of the Month

Students of the Month (May - Virtue observed: Perseverance)

And this last month of school we present you our StCB students of the month who were great examples of the virtue of Perseverance!

Perseverance is not giving up. It is persistence and tenacity, the effort required to do something and keep doing it till the end, even if it's hard.

Perseverance originally comes from the Latin perseverantia and means to abide by something strictly. This makes sense, because if you're doing something in spite of all the difficulty, you're being strict on yourself. We wonder if those youngins will show their perseverance one day by sailing around the world or even climbing Mt. Everest! We shall see...

Students of the Month (April - Virtue observed: Magnanimity)

This month students have been observed according to the virtue of magnanimity. Magnanimity (from Latin magnanimitās, from magna "big" + animus "soul, spirit") is the virtue of being great of mind and heart. It encompasses, usually, a refusal to be petty, a willingness to face danger, and actions for noble purposes.

And how do you become magnanimous?

One must have “greatness of the soul” - rising above pettiness or meanness; be generous in overlooking injury or insult. Other characteristics would be a tolerance of another viewpoint without having smugness about one's own.

And we are so proud to introduce you to the top magnanimous students of StCB!

Students of the Month (March - Virtue observed: Prayerfulness)

This month students have been observed according to the virtue of prayerfulness. Being still, listening, and being willing to talk to God as a friend. Folding hands when praying, focusing on Jesus when in front of the Blessed Sacrament, looking at the priest during Mass, kneeling in the pew, closing their song books quietly. Demonstrating an overall reverence to our Lord not only at church but anytime during their school day.

And we are so proud to announce some of our young minds who are already so focused in their Spiritual lives! May you grow to be as close to God as you are now in your young years!

Students of the Month (November - Virtue observed: Gratitude)

This month of November, we observed students who showed sincere gratitude in their daily lives. Fundamentally, cultivating the spirit of gratitude requires us to develop humility. One of the most important qualities is the ability to say "thank you" to others and to take no one and nothing for granted. Those who possess the virtue of gratitude are truly rich. They not only know they have been blessed, but they continuously remember that all good things come from God. We need to understand that everything that we have and everything that we are is a gift.

And we proudly present to you our Students of the month for November!
