Empathetic Global Citizen
Saints value and embrace the diverse cultures and unique perspectives through mutual respect and open dialogue. They believe in inclusivity and demonstrate personal, social and civic responsibility.
"Do not neglect to show hospitality to strangers, for by doing that some have entertained angels without knowing it." Hebrews 13:2
Specific Chapel talks will celebrate the contributions of Archbishop Desmond Tutu and Reverend Absalom Jones.
Early Childhood: Accepting Differences, Showing Self Control, Being a Good Citizen
Lower School: Empathy, Respect
Middle & Upper Schools: Empathy
Early Childhood students spent time with Julie Miller from the Adera Foundation in preparation for making Valentine's bags for children in Ethiopia. She also has a table set up in the Dillard Center if you'd like to learn more about Adera's work. Later in the spring, Early Childhood will host their annual Around the World day of activities where students rotate between classrooms to learn about different countries' traditions, food and flags.
Lower School students will be writing letters to International Newcomer Academy students as part of their writing curriculum. Students are also conducting research, creating art and STEM projects, and engaging in class readings and discussions about influential Black Americans.
Middle School is partnering with World Relief North Texas to help house a refugee family and furnish their apartment in Monarch Pass in Southeast Fort Worth.
4Africa will be visiting with Middle School students in Chapel and then sending home virtual reality goggles so Middle and Upper School families can experience the lives of people in Uganda and South Sudan.
