Join the 100 Club

The support of the 100 Club is a blessing.  As you know, our parents make financial sacrifices to send their kids to a school that can put God into every part of the day. From the moment the doors open, the hallways and classrooms are filled with guidance from the Holy Spirit. It is evident from the joy on the student’s faces that they are guided to use their God given talents to meet challenges and live to their full potential.

This year the money received from the 100 Club will go directly back to the students. The teachers have a wish list for the classrooms that will brighten up the days for the children. After being in school for nearly 100 days, they have pinpointed a couple of items that will really enhance the learning environment.

 

Wish List

Preschool ~ New shelving unit and sand/water table

Kindergarten ~ Shelves and educational games

1st/2nd ~ Bean Bag chairs for the reading corner

3rd/4th ~ flexible seating chairs (proven to improve attention and focus)

5th/6th ~ New books to help rebuild the library for older students.

Music ~ Glockenspiels (can be used for all age levels to learn music and for performances)

Art ~ Table easels

 

To join the 100 Club, simply send your $100 donation to the Parish Office, marked as 100 Club. Your donation to the 100 Club can make all of the difference to the students.

Thank you for your vision that Sacred Heart School will continue to inspire the next generation of faithful, lifelong learners.

 May God Bless You,

Anne Atkin, principal

 

Easter Preparations

The students are preparing for Easter. We began with Mass on Ash Wednesday and we will continue the next 40 days focusing on being the best versions of ourselves.  Lent is the time when the students learn about putting Jesus first.  We will pray every day together to remember the death and resurrection of Jesus.

During Lent the students spend time, every week at the Church, moving through the Stations of the Cross. We invite you join us with a child friendly walk of the last steps of Jesus every Thursday at 12:30.

Each student is asked to give up something important to them.  The students have chosen different things but the point is to stick with it for 40 days.  The journey to Christ can have temptations but we are trying very hard to stay on the path.

We will be praying for all of you this Lent.  The students have such focused caring for all of those who need prayers.  They remember to pray for all people in all situations.  Fourth grader, Ellie Loar always asks us to pray for the people who do not have food or money or shelter.  What a beautiful thought.

It is the season to open hearts and to maintain a solid purpose.  We know it will be challenging but the gift of Easter is worth every day that we stay focused on Christ.

God Bless,

Anne Atkin, Principal
