Servant Leadership at STM: Where Leaders Are Made

The first quarter of the school year was full of our Cavaliers learning how, and continuing to be, servant leaders. Read on for class updates!

 

Our Freshmen just participated in their retreat, learning what it means to be a servant leader through guest speakers, discussions, and by donating and assembling 20 Holiday Food Boxes for Capuchin Community Services.  Check out what one student had to say after the retreat:

 

“On this retreat, I learned that we all have a lot of items that we could give up. In an activity, most of us gave up many things such as our phones, playing games, or anything that isn’t so important in return for your family or something that means a lot to you. When we were playing dodgeball, we all had a chance to participate. We all had great sportsmanship even though there was a lot of competition. We also learned a lot about the people in our class and about upperclassmen. I personally learned how important my family is, I sacrificed my whole life in order to make my parents have a chance to see my brother graduate college. Finally, I realized how important my life is and how much everyone should really appreciate their life…life is tough but at least you have it better than some.”

 

Our Sophomores have been cultivating relationships with mentors to help them reach four goals patterned after the life of St. Thomas More in our “Graduate at Graduation” Statement.  Here is one student reflecting on their first mentor meeting:

 

“My mentor has known my family since I was in second grade, but she and I began to develop a relationship when I was in fourth grade. My first impression of my mentor was that she was so kind, caring, mature, and she treats me like I’m her own daughter. We both take academics seriously. We are both very organized. We both have great senses of humor, and we are good at giving each other constructive criticism.”

 

Our Juniors are taking the initiative to help donate to a professorship for organ donation research, inspired by Tony and Melissa Arenas (TM ‘03).  Please save the date and stay tuned for more information about how you can participate in this fundraising walk/run!

    Congratulations to the Cavalier Powerlifting Team! On Saturday, seven Cavaliers competed in a powerlifting meet at Cudahy High School. Five of the seven athletes medaled, and two of those students are going to state!

    “Coach Litscher and I are proud of these student athletes for the hard work and dedication to training," said powerlifting coach and STM science teacher Mike Fricke. "Strength training has a unique way of instilling confidence and growth in young men and women, and in the end that is the most important outcome anyone would want of our students at St. Thomas More High School.”

    Stay tuned for more updates on our powerlifting team as some of them compete in Germantown in February and then at the state meet in Appleton on March 2 and 3.
