Virtue of the Month - Stewardship
Congratulations to 8th grade student Austin Keith, who is our new Student Council President! Vice President is Alexa Lira, Secretary is Natalie Escobedo, and Treasurer is Max Mosher. Additional officers include William Boyce as Historian, Greta Wohlfeld as Publicity Director, and Miranda Churchill as Spirit Director. We will keep you updated on student council activities in the coming months.
Led by Mrs. Pat Thompson and Mrs. Ashley Appleman, students at St. Bernard have the opportunity to take part in a patriotic activity: The F.L.A.G. Program. The Fly, Lower, And Gather Program was formed by retired Master Sergeant Jim Rodriguez to instill pride and patriotism in the students of today. We are the first Catholic grade school in the Diocese of Dallas to participate in this program, which is open to all interested students in grades 4 – 8. Students in the F.L.A.G. Program will be responsible for the daily raising and lowering of the flag in front of the school, and will receive a citizenship award at the end of the year. Encourage your student(s) to join - Mrs. Thompson is still collecting applications!
Pat Thompson - 5th Grade
Pat Thompson was born and raised in Dallas. She graduated from NTSU in 1975 and has been teaching ever since. She taught at Good Shepherd and St. Patrick before coming to St. Bernard. She has been an active Boy Scout leader since 1986, finally retiring from scouting this year. She has 3 sons and 2 grandsons who she truly loves.
Special Note: Mrs. Thompson's birthday is tomorrow - November 13th! Be sure to wish her a Happy Birthday if you - or your students - see her!
1. What is your dream vacation? I would love to visit the old Cathedrals and Castles of Europe with my husband.
2. What is your favorite book or movie and why? "It's a Wonderful Life" - because it shows that however insignificant we may think we are, we are really important to God's plan.
3. What famous person would you like to meet some day? I wish I could have met Joan of Arc.
4. Do you have a bucket list item you would like to share? I would love to visit National Parks, hike part of the Appalachian Trails, and sail on a Windjammer cruise.
7th Grade Volleyball
PLAYOFFS:Thanks to all who came out to cheer on our Lady Bruins during their semi-final volleyball game last Thursday. Down to only 6 players, they struggled against a large and strong All Saints team, losing both sets and the match. While they didn't go on to the finals, they had an absolutely fantastic season, and we are proud of them!
