This month, we highlight FAITHFULNESS.
Ancient intellects like Aristotle exalted the just and caring individual. Modern intellects laud caring, empathetic and sympathetic individuals. These traits are what help us to move beyond ourselves and sense the needs of others. These traits build community.
Faithfulness is standing by those we love and our community. What a vital virtue this is, as we strive to build back our community this month with our return to in-person learning! We are dedicated to making this a safe and positive place for our students and their families. Because of our love for each other as staff members, we are willing to work together and march through difficult situations. Faithfulness encompases love, dedication, commitment and duty.
There are many literary examples of faithfulness throughout our classical and core knowledge curriculum, but if you would like to browse some other examples, check out March's Core Virtue.
March is also Women's History Month. Many of the recommendations at the link above feature female pioneers like (Ann Sullivan and Clara Barton) whose faithfulness, compassion and determination helped change the world for the better.
