St. Mary's Catholic School partners with families in the formation of children as disciples of Jesus and His Kingdom, through FAITH, SCHOLARSHIP, LEADERSHIP, and SERVICE.

Accuracy - Virtue of the Week

Big picture

This week our virtue theme is ACCURACY - The strength to achieve an objective with precision and exactness. ACCURACY is necessary for everything in life. We need to be ACCURATE in our daily decisions and actions-on and off the playing field if we hope to be successful; sloppy play never wins championships!
