Virtues of the Month

Each month Holy Name of Jesus School focuses on a specific virtue of character development. Throughout this month, the Faculty and Administration will encourage growth in the particular virtue during Morning Assembly, in the classroom, on campus, and during extra-curricular activities. Subsequently, one grade level will be responsible for designing activities (presentations, projects, service) that best reflect that month’s virtue.

The emphasis each month will be on individual growth of the virtue. Holy Name of Jesus School focuses on the following virtues:

  • Kindness
  • Responsibility
  • Gratitude
  • Generosity
  • Perseverance
  • Honesty
  • Forgiveness
  • Respect
  • Unity


At the end of each month, teachers and Administration will choose students from each grade level (1-7) who have grown the most and/or exhibited strong qualities of the virtue as Honorable Gators. These students will be honored at our School Mass. The monthly virtues will be practiced and emphasized in an age-appropriate manner for students in grades PreK3 through Kindergarten.
