Great Character!
I'm not sure if you saw this on the news last night, but I thought I'd share it to
demonstrate how great MStM students can be:

http://whotv.com/2014/10/08/volleyball-players-show-true-character-with-act-of-kindness/

It can be easy to look at the negative parts of this profession - long hours preparing lessons
and grading papers; challenges with students, parents, and colleagues; the ever-changing
mandates from the Feds - and allow them to define the work we do from time to time.
It is times like that when we need these reminders that we do have great kids and
a great staff here, and I hope this helps to see the true character of an MStM Blue Devil.
Have a great day of teaching and learning!

This Is What It's All About!
"Super impressed with the Freshman volleyball team from Martensdale St. Mary!! They accidentally hit a ball into the bleachers where we were sitting tonight and it hit Suzie in the face. Following the game they came over and told Suzie they were sorry. It all ended in a group hug....All this without their coach's prompting!! I'd say that's some good sportsmanship!!!" - Heather Moorman - Wayne Parent
