Celebrating Excellence: The B.O.L.T. Awards

At Holy Cross, learning is more than just reading books and taking tests. It’s also about becoming great people with strong, faith-filled values and leadership skills. That’s why we introduced the B.O.L.T. Awards – Builders of Leadership and Tradition. It’s a monthly award where we recognize students for being amazing leaders and for showing the values that make Holy Cross so incredibly special. Each month, we’ll focus on a different value and celebrate students who do a great job living up to it.

Here is a break down of the virtues we will be focusing on this year:

September: Respect and Listening– In September, we started with the value of Respect. This means treating everyone nicely and making sure everyone feels important. It’s also about being a good listener.


October: Compassion and Organization– In October, we’ll talk about Compassion, which means being kind and understanding to others. We’ll also look at the importance of being organized and keeping things tidy.

November: Gratitude and Cooperation– In November, we’ll focus on Gratitude, which means being thankful for the good things in our lives. We’ll also learn about Cooperation, working together nicely to achieve great things.

December: Generosity and Sharing– December is all about Generosity, which is about sharing with others who need help. We’ll also talk about Sharing, which is a simple way to make the world a better place.

January: Perseverance and Problem Solving- When we face tough challenges, we need Perseverance, which means not giving up. We’ll also look at Problem Solving, finding creative solutions to problems.

February: Love and Following Directions– February is the month of love. We’ll learn about showing love and kindness to others. We’ll also talk about Following Directions, which is about doing what we’re asked to do.

March: Forgiveness and Social Skills– March is about Forgiveness, which means being kind and forgiving when someone makes a mistake. We’ll also work on Social Skills, like making friends and being friendly.

April: Integrity and Completing a Task– In April, we’ll talk about Integrity, which means being honest and doing what’s right. We’ll also focus on Completing a Task, finishing our work with care.

May: Service- Finally, in May, we celebrate Service. This is about helping others and making our community better. It’s a great way to finish the school year!

The B.O.L.T. Awards are to recognize students who are not only great learners, but also faithful leaders. We’re super proud of Kayleigh Jadin, Julia VanEgeren, Quinn Servi, Eli DeKeyser, Zita DeLeers, Isley Reimer, Maevh Pflug, Nora Davister, Alison Reinhardt, Natalya Orlikowski, Joey Henderson, Claire Schaetz and Thomas Toppel for showing us what respect and listening look like in September. We can’t wait to see who will shine in October as we celebrate Compassion and Organization. Together, we’re building a school community that values leadership and tradition at Holy Cross.
