Our school wide virtue this week is: 
STEWARDSHIP 
STEWARDSHIP is receiving the gifts God has given us, tending them responsibly, and sharing them with others so we can give them back in increased measure to the Lord.

As each one has received a gift, use it to serve one another as good stewards of God’s varied grace.
1 Peter 4:10
