Congratulations to our April Virtues in Practice recipients! Here’s how Promise Goodwin and Julius Sanchez modeled Justice (being fair and giving each his due):
“When I came to school on Wednesday I spilled my drink in the hallway. I went to get paper towels and Promise asked if I wanted her to clean it up for me. It was very kind and generous of her to offer her assistance. I started to clean up the mess and Julius walked up and asked if he could help me. This was also very kind and generous of Julius. Hearing these two students ask me to help made my day. They restored some goodness and made my day. –Mrs. Cunnington
The May virtue is Zeal (being driven by an intense love for God).
