One of the most important aspects of a child’s educational experience is friendship. Kids need to feel secure, valued and loved by their peers so that they have the confidence to challenge themselves, learn and grow. The Catholic schools of the Diocese of Lansing are committed to fostering an atmosphere where friendship with Jesus is the model for our school communities, and where children feel they belong.
The artwork of Isabel Migan, a seventh-grader at St. Paul Catholic School in Owosso, was selected in the Cross Catholic Outreach’s World Food Day contest. She submitted her artwork last spring, and received the news of her honor in February 2016. The contest featured original drawings promoting World Food Day, which will be celebrated on Oct. 16, 2016. Megan’s winning artwork will appear on posters in hundreds of schools across the United States, and also on World Day promotional materials. Once the poster is published, it will be available to view on Cross Catholic Outreach’s website at crosscatholic.org.

High school can be about the big wins. State championships. Award-winning graduates. National rankings. They matter because they reflect a commitment to perseverance, excellence and an uncompromising desire to reach the most challenging goals. But at the Catholic schools of the Diocese of Lansing, we celebrate the small victories, too, because we know that high school students still need encouragement in order to grow in self-confidence, resiliency and courage. That’s why we thank the Lord for every opportunity He gives our students to discover His presence in their lives, win or lose. (Of course, we thank Him for those state championships, too!)
