JUSTICE & MERCY IN ACTION
We use the word WITNESS a lot. You see it all around our school. We use it primarily because our Patroness was the first witness of the Resurrection. Importantly, we use it as a noun and a verb. I would argue that the latter is its more important usage. The below link has some great ideas for how to WITNESS JUSTICE.
OUR RELIGION COMMISSIONER'S TAKE ON JUSTICE
by Araceli R.
What is Justice? Justice means to act or treat
fairly,or to treat someone properly.
This applies especially
to the poor, the weak and the sick.
These words also mean fairness,
fair play, equity, and honesty.
Jesus witnessed Justice by
spending time with people who
Were hated by others. He also witnessed it be healing the
Sick, the paralyzed and the blind.
As a school we are not able to perform miracles in the way that Jesus did, but we have witnessed justice in our service
during our Thanksgiving canned food drive
because we served God’s people.
Justice to me is that everyone should be treated
equally, and to treat or show someone a way that
is good as it should be.
Davian G. is a good example of Justice in our
community. Every Day Davian treats everyone properly. He is a very good example of Justice.
Have a blessed day.

2nd Annual Chess Tourney
The participants played excellently, having improved significantly since the beginning of the year. It should be noted that the runner up, Araceli, did not know how a piece moved in September. However, she practiced very hard, attended Chess Club each week, and had a great growth mindset to show great improvement to make it to the Championship game.
