Mission Elementary is a special place where our students have learned about the pillars of Dominican spirituality that St. Dominic represented: prayer, community, study and service. A new award was presented this year at our First Trimester Awards Ceremony. In addition to the academic and spirit awards, the Growing Up Dominican Award t-shirt was given to students in each grade who have exemplified the Dominican Pillar of PRAYER and modeled them for their peers.
