What do you love most about Saint Timothy’s Catholic School?
That was the question, among others, that we asked our parents, staff, and others to answer during Catholic Schools Week and beyond, as we celebrate our school during this year in a special way. It was wonderful to read the great support and love for our school and its importance in our parish life. I will be posting some of the answers to this question and others throughout the year.
One of our parents had this to say:
Saint Timothy’s School is a welcoming family. The staff is loving, kind, and dedicated. They invest their time and energy in all the children, not just their specific students. I love that my children see each other throughout the day, and they make friends at all grade levels. The older students are great helpers as well as positive examples. There is a sense of connection and involvement between all students. The class sizes makes me comfortable that the children are getting the attention they need to succeed, and the communication between school and parents is excellent. Lastly, it is a blessing to have such a warm environment where my children can learn and talk about God.
Here are a few other, shorter responses:
“The faith-filled, loving family atmosphere.”
“The wonderful and caring staff, the small class sizes, and its traditional Catholic identity.”
“Christ-centered and my children feel loved by the staff.”
“I love the close family feeling that is centered around our faith.”
One of our staff shared this:
It is small things like watching a whole school of exuberant students racing around the playground at recess, when suddenly an ambulance is heard in the distance and immediately a hush comes over the schoolyard while quietly and collectively all the children begin praying a Hail Mary.
Again, these were just a few of the many answers to this question and others that I will be sharing as we honor our school in a special way this year as a parish. I look forward to sharing many more. It was clear that people have a great love for our school and its faith-filled, family atmosphere that provides a great education. Thank you to our broader parish community for supporting this important outreach of our parish, whether you have children or family in our school or not.
Have a great weekend.
