At St. Serra, we recognize and operate from eight fundamental principles from scripture that we refer to as our Core Values. Our Core Values are visible on the blue banners alongside the Chapel Gate. These Core Values not only remind us of what is important in life, but they also help guide our behaviors, decisions, and actions. Our eight Core Values are as follows:

October 2022 Core Value


For October 2022, we will focus on the Core Value of Humility, the central theme of this quote from Proverbs:

“Before destruction one’s heart is haughty, but humility goes before honor.”
                                                                                                       - Proverbs 18:12

There is no better way to demonstrate humility than to give our time to others, to do the things that nobody else wants to do, and to operate from our hearts instead of our egos. This kind of selfless act offers us the opportunity to become more aware of the feelings, thoughts, and experiences of the people around us. St. Serra offers numerous opportunities to volunteer your time in the service of your children. By volunteering, you not only model humility for the St. Serra students, but you also participate in building our school community and help shape it, aligning it with our Core Values. This work can be rewarding beyond measure.

This month, as our entire school explores what it means to demonstrate the Core Value of Humility, I encourage you to participate in discussions at home, as well. Talk with your children about what it means in your family to be humble and to practice Humility in everyday life.

Always striving,

Tim Tolzda
