The Cotchen Family

The Cotchen family has been with St. Thomas Parish for over ten years. There are four members of their family. They enjoy outdoor activities, which include swimming in their pool, cooking outside, and visiting the beach. Greg and Bethany feel that a Catholic education has the advantage of being able to instill good morals and values along with a good education, and developing well rounded students and responsible youth. The class sizes enable the teachers to give closer attention to a student’s needs and provide better instruction than in a larger class environment. As a part of St. Thomas School, the Cotchens believe that the reading programs are of great value to the students, and that enables them to develop in further areas. Currently, the computer lab will allow the students to develop more technologically than in past years. Most importantly, Greg and Bethany feel that faith education is vital in their children’s lives. The Cotchen family chose St. Thomas School because they believe that this school provides a faith-based education for any student in a loving, caring, and safe environment, which provides tools that are needed to reach their full potential.
