St. Bernard’s offers able young boys of diverse backgrounds an exceptionally thorough, rigorous, and enjoyable introduction to learning and community life. We wish to inspire boys to value hard work and fair play, to develop confidence, consideration for others, and a sense of citizenship, and to have fun while doing these things.
A good heart is as valuable as a well-stocked, well-trained head.
As you may recall, this year’s school-wide community book was I, Juan de Pareja by Elizabeth Borton de Treviño. The students and faculty have discussed the book, but last week, the St. Bernard’s parents had a chance to take a deeper look.
The Hoops 4 Hope 6th grade Middle School Alliance event that we did with Spence last week was fun and educational. Hoops 4 Hope is a great organization that donates basketball supplies (including sneakers!) and teaches basketball and life skills to kids in very poor communities in Zimbabwe and other African countries.
Midway through the fall term, the class plays begin. Each class in grades I-VII performs a play during the Friday assembly. As has been the recent tradition, the lineup begins with Mr. Moraitis’s sixth grade.
