These are some of the many reasons why I love Nativity Catholic School:
All of the teachers are good examples to me. They teach and show me different ways to learn and are friendly and helpful when I don’t understand something.
I also love being a Titan because the children are friendly, loving and kind. The kids here make it feel like one big happy family.
Science is another reason why I love Nativity. I learn lots of facts about saltwater, freshwater and other ecosystems.
Lastly, and I think best of all, is the faith that I share at Nativity. It is a great feeling to go to a school where we can pray together.

Nativity is a one-of-a-kind school, where learning is exciting and challenging. We are expected to work hard and respect others. I love Nativity because we can practice our faith in a loving community, and we have so many opportunities.
Learning about God makes me feel closer to him. We go to Mass every Thursday, and we pray before lunch every day.
Our service projects raise money to help the needy. Students are kind to others because we care for one another. Parents care about education because they want their kids to be smart.
Nativity provides us with opportunities in football, baseball, wrestling, basketball, soccer, volleyball, kickball and archery. We have clubs, and we go on field trips. Fourth-graders go to Camp Tecumseh to learn about pioneer life.
I love Nativity and every opportunity that it has to offer.

Nativity is the best school because it has the best playground in the world.
The school has the best lunches in the world too. I like the chicken nuggets.
Nativity has the best smell. My teacher’s classroom smells beautiful.
The best thing about Nativity is the preschool. It has the cutest kids ever.

I have attended Nativity since kindergarten. I’ve had such a positive experience and couldn’t imagine myself going anywhere else. I’ve created lifelong memories and friends. I love Nativity because I’m able to practice and discuss my faith. The school offers a family atmosphere and is setting me up for long-term success.
We go to church every Thursday and receive the Eucharist. We also have religion class every day, just like any other subject. We pray at least four times a day. I’ve learned how to keep God in the center of my life because he helps me become the person I am.
I have become close to all of my classmates. The older students help out the younger ones, and we have church and science buddies.
The teachers don’t just see us as students. Our teachers have taken a personal interest in us, and they have gotten to know us as individuals. Because of this, they are able to find out our learning strategies and how we absorb and process information. This allows us to learn in ways we understand, meaning we do better.
Our classes are more difficult than those at most schools, especially math. I know that I will be well prepared for high school with what I have learned, considering I am already being taught one of the high school level courses. A lot is expected out of us, but we are taught how to achieve. We learn how to set short- and long-term goals and how to achieve them. Our teachers want to see us succeed, and they work with us the best they possibly can in order for that to happen. I know that when I go to high school I will be more than prepared.
I believe the most important thing that I have learned is my faith in God. Being able to openly ask questions about my faith and pray is something I couldn’t have done anywhere else.
My faith is priceless to me, just like my experience at Nativity has been.
