CK Virtue Pledge
As a Christ the King Catholic School Crusader, I dedicate myself and support others in living virtue. I commit to constructive thoughts, words, and deeds, and when faced with challenges or conflicts, I will find solutions that cultivate virtue.
The essence of Christian discipline is formation in virtue. According to the Catechism of the Catholic Church: “The goal of a virtuous life is to become like God.” (CCC 1803)
Preschool through 8th Grade students focus on a virtue each month. The purpose of this is to increase our knowledge of virtuous behavior and help us to live the virtues daily, and recognize when we need virtue.
September-Confidence: Learning to see yourself the way God sees you, trusting that we have the strength to do hard things.
October-Enthusiasm: Demonstrating excitement about life and openness to the wonders each day holds.
November-Gratitude: Being thankful, showing appreciation and returning kindness.
December-Integrity: Being honest and speaking the truth. Presenting yourself genuinely and sincerely.
January-Peace: Having a sense of calm within yourself, in relationships, and community, trusting that God is in control.
February-Generosity: Showing an attitude of gratitude by giving of your time, resources, and talents.
March-Forgiveness: After a wrongdoing, offering grace for yourself and others.
April-Faith: Being loyal to your beliefs, being true to God and the people you love.
May-Trust: Demonstrating a firm belief in the good in a person, or a situation.
June-Humor: Enjoying the richness of life and finding joy in the midst of trying times.
Below are some grade level examples of how our students practice the monthly virtue in the classroom.
