From Miss Martin
St. Tim's students tend to love stories. When you were a student here, you were presented with Bible stories, picture books, novels, historical narratives, and biographical sketches in the hopes that through these stories your attention would be drawn to wonderful things, and that through these stories you would learn something of what it means to live and love well.
The current students at St. Timothy's continue to be given daily feasts of stories, but they have, perhaps, a bit of an advantage over you in one way: they also have access to your stories. Older siblings and visiting alumni have stories to tell our current students about their time here. The littlest ones love hearing about your adventures and knowing what you loved as a student. They love seeing pictures of you in the hallway, and being impressed by how grown up you are now.
And the older students, while they might not smother you with hugs as you come through the door, are curious about your stories as well. It's helpful for them to hear what you struggled with during your time at St. Tim's, and what you might understand now that you didn't when you were a student here. As they move towards graduation, it's good for them to meet you and to know something about what you're doing now.
The staff are always grateful when alumni show up to help set up for events, but we are grateful too when you take the time to chat with the current students, telling stories that help them see their time here in new ways. We hope you are finding yourselves in the middle of good stories these days, and that you'll take a minute to share some old legend of your time at St. Timothy's with a student next time you visit.
