One student per class was recognized for demonstrating the Virtue of the Month, Courtesy, throughout the month of October. Courtesy is treating other people with respect, recognizing that all are made in God’s image and likeness. We are so proud of you and fortunate to have each of you as students at St. Anthony of Padua School. One lucky winner, Harper Perry, was selected to win a St. Anthony drawstring back pack. Our November Virtue of the Month is Gratitude.
