Finishing Touch On Curiosity
Good morning St. Mary Magdalen parish and school community. The value we recognized last month was curiosity. Curiosity is defined as, “A strong desire to want to learn something.” Witnessing curiosity can be demonstrated by showing a passionate interest in discovering something new, or by taking the initiative to learn more about a certain subject you are already familiar with.
Witnessing curiosity is an essential part of students’ academic lives. Students demonstrate curiosity by asking their teachers, peers, and parents probing questions, or by seeking to find answers by using the resources around them to search for in depth information.
Our school principal, Mr. Daily, is a great example of a person who always demonstrates curiosity. Being curious doesn’t necessarily have to mean that you always ask questions, but it can also mean that you are always open to new possibilities. Mr. Daily is always open to new ideas from students, staff, and the community that can help make St. Mary Magdalen become a more mission-driven environment.
Walt Disney once said, “We keep moving forward, opening new doors, and doing new things, because we're curious and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths.” Many people throughout history such as Albert Einstein and Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., have changed the world because of their curiosity. They may not have noticed it or meant it, but they slowly made an impact on the world and the way we think because they witnessed curiosity. Mavericks, I challenge you all to continue to witness curiosity throughout the school year by not being afraid to ask questions, and by doing your best to search for answers. You never know, your curiosity might cure cancer and other supposed incurable diseases or reverse global warming some day. Thank you and have a great day.
