As primary educators, parents are tasked with making decisions – especially in the early years. What stories do we want our children to hear, what music, what art do we want our children to see, what movies? In his letter to the Philippians, Saint Paul exhorts all of us to “fill our minds with what is good, true and beautiful.” These are the things that we should present to our children as worthy of learning. This is our curriculum and our children’s education.
The elementary years are precisely when we want to fill our children with what is good, beautiful and true!
In considering the life of a Saint Francis student, it is amazing how each student encounters all of these things on a daily basis . . .
