The Aquinas Medal

One student, usually from the sixth grade, who embodies the qualities we seek to install in our students.  The medal is not intended as strictly an academic recognition but to make visible those young people in our school who embody the spirit of the school’s mission and the philosophy of the Catholic school education. The principal will present the Aquinas Medal to the student, a congratulatory letter from the Bishop, and a letter from the Superintendent of Catholic Schools.
