“Knowledge is like climbing a mountain. The higher you reach the more you can see and appreciate” (author unknown). Our Catholic schools merit all the attention they receive during this Catholic Schools Week. The facts students learn may serve them well on a Jeopardy game, but those facts surrounded by skills of critical thinking, speaking, problem solving, and ability to interact socially take them up the mountain even farther.
How have you stretched your knowledge lately? Where do you need to see farther? Let your appreciation for knowledge be known, perhaps thanking a teacher or anyone else who has helped you grow.
