Reese, Class of 2019

June 11, 2019 | Abby Liu

Even though Reese sometimes struggles in math, she’s looking forward to studying the subject when she attends the Academy of the Holy Angels in the fall. She’s excited to meet new friends. Go to a new campus. And grow in independence.

Mustard Seed School has taught Reese to be a leader. She has opportunities to lead almost every day. It might be in morning meeting. At a celebration. During field day. Or even giving a homily during worship. As a young child, she remembers looking up to older students who were leading. She learned so much by their example.

Traits that Reese has developed at MSS include confidence. Positivity. And curiosity. She’s also learned to keep going when something is difficult. Especially in math! (Thanks to Mr. Lawrence for unlocking the math mysteries.)

Standout memories include the Spruce Lake field trips and the Sixth Grade Memoir project. Staying overnight at Spruce Lake with classmates was a great way to get to know them better. The games and challenges required teamwork. Through writing her memoir, Reese learned a lot about herself. And she enjoyed making her artifact: three big Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups with different food inside that she connected to her character traits.

Reese would like to say thank you to all of her teachers and classmates. They’ve helped her grow into the person she is today. Over the eleven years that she has been at Mustard Seed the thing that stays with Reese the most is how the students are so forgiving and genuine. She’ll miss the tight-knit school community.
