December is a busy month at Sacred Heart School. We have many special events planned as we wait and prepare for Christmas. The students are practicing for the Christmas Program “Carol and the Bells’ which we will perform on December 15th at 3:00 in the Church hall. Please join us after the performance for a cookie exchange. See the attached newsletter for all upcoming events and news.
As we move through the advent season at Sacred Heart School, we have many special activities planned for our students and their families. This past week the 5th/6th grade orchestra students performed at the Anderson~Marry Funeral Home Open House. Under the direction of Mrs. Martinez, they made beautiful music. This is so amazing considering this is the first year for orchestra and the students have only had their violins or violas for 2 and a half months.
Next week, the 1st/2nd grade class will tour the Thompson Museum and on Tuesday we are taking an all-school field trip to the Hudson Cinema to watch the movie The Grinch with our families. On Friday, December 14th, the Emmaus Group will be hosting a special birthday celebration for Jesus. A special thank you to Linda Higgins for coming to the school to celebrate. On Saturday, December 15th, the students will be performing Carol and the Bells at 3:00 in the Church Hall, followed by a cookie exchange. All are welcome to attend. Our hope is that the students will learn that they are able to bring a lot of joy to our community during this season of preparing and waiting for Jesus.
May God bless you this advent season!

We have had a wonderful week finishing up gratitude and moving into the season of Advent. The students are working very hard and we are having a great year!
Please see the attached newsletter for all events and classroom updates.
Sacred Heart School had such wonderful support during our Be In Our Heart Gala on Saturday. Alumni, church, school and community all celebrated Catholic education and had a lot of fun! Together we raised over $28,000 to support our school. We cannot thank everyone enough and we are already planning for next year. Please see the attached newsletter for school news and upcoming events.
Thank you for supporting Catholic Education in your community.
We are so blessed! Sacred Heart School has the lowest tuition rate in the Diocese of Lansing, and one of the lowest in the state. We would like to keep it that way. We want our message to the community to be that Catholic education can be for everyone who wants it and who wouldn’t want it? Our small school community feels like a comfortable sanctuary for our families who are out navigating the world. It can be wild out there with busy schedules, heavy workload, invasive social media and just the pressure of raising a family. Sacred Heart School is the calm in the storm. Our students get the one-on-one attention in a loving, yet orderly setting. It is truly a school where learning and virtue are sacred; where students are taught to persevere. There is something magical going on in our halls and the formula for confident students is working.
On Saturday, it was clear that the community has taken notice. The “Be In our Heart Gala” brought overwhelming support for the school. The excitement and love for our little school was undeniable. From alumni, teachers, families, community members and supporters the message was clear: We love Sacred Heart School and believe in the power of Catholic education for the future of our country.
Thanks to all of you, we were able to raise $28,400 in profit at our gala.

The students are all acquainted with what it means to be thankful. They are thankful for their families, and their friends and their school. But what about the times is hard to be thankful, like when you are disappointed or disaster has struck? This week the students gave examples of times when life was hard but they were still able to see god’s love for them. Please see the attached newsletter for the latest school news.
This week in school we talked a lot about our saints and our souls. We asked the Saints to pray for us as we grow and struggle and learn to be closer to Christ. Then, we prayed for all of the people who have died, especially the ones close to us. We pray for their perfect soul to be united with God.
