Throughout September we celebrate the virtue of inclusivity. At St. Thomas Aquinas School, we practice inclusivity when we include others and welcome everyone to be a part of our activities, our discussions and our lives.  Jesus welcomed all people and invited them to follow him.  This month we work to remember and practice ways that we can include others in our learning and play inside and outside of the classroom.

“Whoever welcomes in my name one of these children, welcomes me….”  Mark 9:37

“’Let the children come to me, and do not stop them, because the kingdom of God belongs to such as these.’ …”  Mark 10:14
