Kindness & Community Service

Rectory students care. They care about each other, they care about the adults in the community, and they care about our world. I am proud of our students. At a time in their lives when thoughts can easily focus on material wants or peer approval, our students are looking out for each other and those beyond our community. From raising money for hurricane relief or cancer research to collecting food and donating toys for local families, Rectory students are aware and they care.

Ms. O'Neil recently made treats for her study hall students. I told her what a nice gesture that was, and she responded, "Well, kindness is the new cool." Fortunately, kindness has been cool at Rectory for a long time, but I will never tire of it, nor will our community ever cease to value this importance of bettering the lives of others while always looking to improve ourselves.

On Monday, January 15, we held our ninth-annual Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Service. Kindness and Community Service are important aspects of a Rectory School education. According to Mr. Williams, "Rectory students care. They care about each other, they care about the adults in the community, and they care about our world. I am proud of our students. At a time in their lives when thoughts can easily focus on material wants or peer approval, our students are looking out for each other and those beyond our community."
