St. Aloysius School Students of the Month for May demonstrated perseverance.
Zach Crawford, in kindergarten, used perseverance to accomplish his school work, and he never gives up.
In addition, Zach helped his friends with tasks.
Third-grader Wyatt DeWitt worked hard at everything – with a smile – even though the work was
challenging. He always keeps trying.
Collin Korte, of grade 7, persevered through a broken leg and much therapy. Throughout the year he kept a
wonderful work ethic.
In April, the school awarded students for showing spirituality.
Jacob Snell and Gryffin Sader, both in the second grade, made the decision to join the Catholic faith.
They both attended extra classes to prepare to receive First Communion, and were accepted into the faith
during the Easter season.
Fifth-grader Jaekob Sader also joined the Catholic faith at Easter. He was very interested in what it
means to be a good Catholic.
Eighth-grader Jacob Radwanski showed spirituality by always participating at Mass as a role model for his
peers. He was very kind to his kindergarten church partners by gently redirecting them and helping to
keep them focused.
