Wisdom At Any Age

The news of my departure notwithstanding, we have had a great week at Saint Anthony. The eighth grade graduates are well on their way to beginning their high school journeys.  

The Kindergarteners received their certificates during a celebration of their first year in school. As a parent, I can remember those days of watching my little ones excitedly anticipating moving on to first grade.

The lessons we learn from these two events is that nothing is without merit in terms of our wisdom. The four eighth grade girls learn that, in order to move forward, changes have to take place that will leave parts of our past, both good and bad, behind. You could sense the melancholy response at the graduation about leaving their teachers, their friends and the familiar surroundings.

The wisdom earned as members of Saint Anthony School can serve those new frontiers, as well. The Kindergarteners, also, are becoming wise even at their young age. When asked what their favorite part of their Kindergarten year was, I heard: learning about Jesus, recess, playtime, lunchtime.

As they say, the most important things in life are learned in Kindergarten. Knowing the importance of Jesus in their lives and the importance of recreation. It is in those times, let us say "non-academic times" of our school days – such as recess, lunch, playtime – where we learn to get along with others, how to organize games, how to share laughs and struggles, and how to deal with conflicts.

The Greek philosopher Aristotle understood that constructive recreation was necessary "in the great-souled man." These most important lessons last forever, Math, English, etc. aside, the most important and enduring lessons of all.
