SAINT RICHARD HOUSE SYSTEM
“Not all of us can do great things. But we can do small things with great love.”
Saint Teresa of Calcutta
SAINT RICHARD CATHOLIC SCHOOL HOUSE SYSTEM
It has long been a tradition of Saint Richard Catholic School to build a sense of family and community among our students and staff. One of the ways we accomplish this is through our established HOUSE SYSTEM named after religious saints. Saint Richard originated the HOUSE SYSTEM to encourage camaraderie among every age group. This year we revamped our HOUSE SYSTEM into four Houses to create an even stronger community.
The new HOUSE SYSTEM is a unified, structured system through which students grow in scholarship, leadership, discipleship, and citizenship within, both, our school community, and the greater community in which we serve. The structure is organized from the top down with a formal committee overseeing the integrity of each HOUSE. This year, all students and faculty were "sorted" into the HOUSES of Bosco, Calcutta, de Porres, and Liseux. Each year new students and faculty will be “sorted” into HOUSES at the beginning of the school year.
Our HOUSES meet regularly throughout the year to complete team building activities and foster friendships. Every child belongs to a HOUSE and siblings are housed together to create a stronger family bond. HOUSES compete together in friendly school competitions and at the annual Field Day. The 6th Graders are the leaders of the HOUSES and mentors to their younger HOUSE mates. The HOUSE SYSTEM is also a way for staff to recognize positive behavior and kind deeds by giving points to students through an electronic app. Students see updates in real time on screens throughout the hallways and parents can receive notifications to celebrate their child's achievements and feel more connected to the HOUSES.
