I feel that the teachers in the Catholic school system are more dedicated to helping a student learn and mature. Reli- gion and the way things are taught are especially helpful in the growth of a student into a responsible adult. Noah Werner I like my Catholic school be- cause there is a "family" type environment. Everyone in the school seems to be cheerful and get along with others. They seem to be able to work out and control their problems. Every- one works together to form one big unit. The teachers are. al- ways there for you if you need help or guidance. They always seem to teach in a fun and in- teresting way. Catholic schools seem by far the best. Natalie Emge Happy Birthday!
