Tell us your story! Ms. Katie Harris shared her HNES story.

December 1, 2017



One of my favorite years at HNES was in my 1st grade class with Ms. Mahavier. It was the first year that I had very distinct memories of learning, activities and field trips - measuring around the classroom with sticks of gum, having our silhouette portraits done, reading Mrs. Spider's Tea Party and watching a giraffe lick our teacher at Zoo World. 1st grade was only year 3 of 10 amazing years at a school that shaped you, nurtured you and taught you to 'Love God' and 'Love Your Neighbor'. Holy Nativity was a place where the teachers cared about you, where your principal remembered your pet's names and where hugs were always welcomed. Now we fast forward 13 years from a little girl who loved the halls of this school so much that she is now a teacher of her own 1st grade class! I still read Mrs. Spider's Tea Party to my kids and we measure around the classroom with sticks of gum. I still follow the two golden rules to 'Love God' and 'Love Your Neighbor' and I always remember the names of my kid's pets because I know how much that meant to me as a child. Holy Nativity doesn't just prepare you for high school and college, it prepares you for life. It prepares you to become a member of society, to be involved in your community. Growing up in the "magic" of Holy Nativity builds your character and integrity and I wouldn't trade my years then and my years here now for anything in the world!
