St. Francis teaches contentment, obedience
At St. Francis School in Ellsworth this December, the hustle and bustle of activities was enhanced with a focus on the virtues of the month. Obedience is doing what you are told and doing it right away. If you are content, you are not greedy or always wanting things.
Each of these virtues is especially fitting for December as children are often very easily distracted with the many activities that occur leading up to Christmas making obedience slightly more challenging. The ability to remain content is sometimes challenging for students while writing letters to Santa and watching people exchange gifts. We are so very proud of the hard work that the students put forth to earn these awards!
