The mission of East Lake Academy is to build well-educated, well-formed disciples, men and women who will be the strong Catholic leaders of tomorrow. Our 8th graders exemplify those qualities both at school and in the community, and we consciously hold them up as role models for our younger students. They are leaders in saints families, they sit with younger students during mass, and they visit the lower school classrooms for virtue presentations and other lessons.
Last week, the 8th grade class visited the Pre-K 4 classroom to read Christmas stories and assist the little ones in making nativity scenes and stockings. In ways big and small, seen and unseen, the class of 2022 is leaving its mark on their school and their fellow students.
