A Note From The Principal
In last week's newsletter from my children's Catholic grammar school, the principal included the following note.
What Would Jesus Do?
We are called as Christians to teach non-violence and peace. We need to communicate this to our children in every aspect of their lives...that violence in any form is unacceptable (it can look like bullying, sarcastic remarks, racial slurs, copying of work, cheating, favoritism, gender inequality, etc. in our homes and schools) and we need to be clear in all our messages. We encourage our children to try to be more like Jesus. We need to ask them, "What would Jesus do?" We need to ask that question, give them time to think about a response and ask them to answer the question by indicating how Jesus would have acted. Then we need to encourage them to "go and do what Jesus would do." As we begin a New Year, let us continue to promote peace within and among ourselves and our children!
