The second day of school was filled with warm smiles and warm temperatures! All of the STM students and staff gathered together in the cafeteria to celebrate the beginning of the new school year. Father Jose began our assembly with a beautiful prayer honoring our Savior, followed by a blessing of our backpacks. After the blessing, Dr. Tyrrell introduced each class and the wonderful teachers and staff at St. Thomas More. We all cheered loudly in excitement and gave a special welcome to our new friends and staff members.
Next, Dr. Tyrrell shared our new school-wide expectations which create the acronym HAWKS.
HAWKS stands for:
H – Honor God, Self, and Others
A – Attend & Achieve Academically
W – Work Collaboratively & Cooperatively
K – Keep Self Accountable
S – Succeed, Serve, & Soar
We look forward to following our HAWKS expectations all year long and in all parts of our school.
