Virtue for the Month of November: Thankfulness

The Virtue for the month of November being discussed in our Primary and Elementary classrooms is “Thankfulness”. Being thankful is appreciating the things you have and the people you care about.


Please send in virtue vouchers when your child is exhibiting thankfulness at home.
