We thank you, Lord, for this opportunity to gather today, and for the ability to attend school for most of the year, while others were robbed of the privilege.
We as freshmen, were new to the community, and we were welcomed.
Thank you for lending us the ability to find new ways to work together and be creative this year.
Thank you for the victories we have fulfilled, and the challenges we overcame to help us to grow. Through all of this, it seems as though the year is already over so fast.
Thank you for the laughs, the fun, and everything we have shared in between the six feet.
As the distance shortens, we pray to become closer to you and to each other both physically and spiritually.
We pray for the day that we can throw these masks off to further celebrate the miracles you have given us.
Today, tomorrow, and in the coming school year, we will not settle for mediocrity, but we will use the gifts you have given us to succeed.
Lord, hear our prayer that we can continue to give back to the community that has given us so much.
Thank you for STA.

There is a remarkable transformation that occurs between the beginning of 9th grade and its conclusion. This is evidenced not only in photographs but by a noticeable change in maturity. Our freshmen Saints have a year under their high school belts now and, with that experience, comes a readiness for new challenges, continued rigor and greater aspirations.
We are deeply proud of this freshman class for meeting unprecedented challenges with remarkable resilience.
Congratulations to the Class of 2024 on a successful first year at St. Thomas Aquinas High School! Saints Pride!
