The St. Matthew's school motto is "Serve, Lead, Flourish". At St. Matthews, you can always hear someone referring back to this motto when talking about things like achieving one's goals, or helping out with the community around you. Everyday I try my hardest to live up to our school motto. To serve, I help the the community at places like OPCC and the Westside Food Bank. Serving is the most rewarding of the three words "Serve, Lead, Flourish" because you always leave a food bank or a homeless shelter with the good feeling that you have made a difference in someone else's life. To lead, I try my hardest to help others out in the classroom who appear to be struggling. Leadership is one of the best qualities a person can have. It teaches you to have good guidance and direction. To flourish, I always work my absolute hardest to improve my grades and listen to advice teachers have to give me, so that I can always learn from my mistakes. In conclusion, the St. Matthew's school motto "Serve, Lead, Flourish" is seen in the work of its students everyday.
