Virtues in Practice

                   Fortitude

Fortitude – Practicing the good and just in challenging
  situations, patience with obstacles.
     I practice doing what is right with
  patience,
     even when it is difficult.

  Pre-K3 poses with Fortitude Mascot “Nolan”

our own lives.  We drew pictures showing the mascot Nolan and posted it along with our motto, “Be Like Christ”.  We had a good time drawing our pictures and learning!
