Talking to teachers about personal issues, grades, sports, etc. is super easy, and they always make me feel comfortable. Playing sports for Holy Rosary has completely changed my life. Playing volleyball for my school has given me multiple opportunities, allowed me to make a club team, and win championships my 7th grade year.

Words help by giving me a way to tell people things and they make life so much easier. – Charlie Hudspeth

We should always listen to what God is calling us to do. This way, we will live a happy and delightful life. – Colin Prentice

                I am thankful for CHANGE because, without it, life would be incredibly boring.
