Dear St. Anthony of Padua Catholic School Families,

Happy Spring Break! And a well-deserved one! Your students have worked hard and have now completed three quarters of this academic year. They should be proud of themselves. And congrats to the parents as well. I know that parents invest so much… Not only their tuition dollars, but countless hours reviewing, checking homework, cheerleading, taxi-driving and so much more. Thank you for all that you do for our students and our school. I pray everyone has a relaxing and rejuvenating break and look forward to seeing you on March 18 th!

Only by His Grace,

Veronica D. Tucker

COUNSELOR'S CORNER BY JANAY O'CONNOR

  • The character trait for March is Perseverance (Patience & Determination). Perseverance means continuing to try to overcome obstacles rather than give up. It means the ability to persevere or see something through. Life can be difficult; having perseverance can make life more manageable. People with this characteristic will be loyal friends and able to keep a cool head under pressure. 
  • The social skill for March is “How to actively listen.”
