Students start new year with resolutions

Kindergarteners pose with their New Year’s resolutions.

Earlier this month was an opportunity to reflect on the past and more importantly think about the new year. That is exactly what the kindergarten class at Seton Catholic School has been doing. Students have learned that the New Year is a time to rely on the grace of God and trust that he will guide us in the right direction. 

“I can do everything through Him who gives me strength.” — Philippians 4:13. This quote from the Apostle Paul was kindergarteners’ focus as they thought about and wrote their resolutions. 

Here is what they have decided to focus on for the upcoming 2011 year:

Case: “Treat others the way they want to be treated.”


Nevan: “Learn how to ride my bicycle.”

Emily: “Eat healthier.”

Daniel: “Be a better brother and student and learn how to read and write.”

Olivia: “Clean my place setting after every meal to help my mom.”

Sophia: “Help people.”

Ethan: “Stay healthy by eating and sleeping better.”

Leah: “Not whine.”

Jacob: “Be a better listener.”

Kaitlyn: “Try not to talk in class when I’m not supposed to.”

Christopher: “Be nice.”

Dalton: “Keep my room clean.”

Zachary: “Listen better in class everyday.”

Sherlyn: “Be a good follower of God.”

Maggie: “Always listen to my mom and dad.”

Aidan: “Be on my best behavior.”
