Dear Sacred Heart Families,
It is time to come back to school. Our journey through the school year is about to begin and the beauty of God’s love and grace can already be felt in the halls of the school and in the smiles of the SHS community. We are blessed to be together; and through the Holy Spirit, we will grow stronger and closer to God.
We are continuing to grow in enrollment and we are excited to welcome many new families for the 2019-2020 school year. It is our vision to serve the community. We are proud to have more than 50 families who entrust us to educate their children to be confident learners who know virtue and who understand the Catholic faith and the unconditional love of Jesus.
This school year we want to be connected to our school families! We have established 6 new councils: parent, hospitality, facilities, marketing, technology and Catholic identity. Parents and staff joined a council at our Care and Share Dessert Night and we are excited to work together this year. Please come to our next Care and Share Wine and Cheese on September 17th. We need and value your input and the council meetings are a great way to be together and have some fun!
I dare say, the school has not looked this good in a long time. With a lot of help, we have cleaned and refreshed much of the school. Our seminarians, Dan and Randy, Christie LaRussa, Jennifer and Kyle, our mulching volunteers, Steve Kope and many others have poured their efforts into making our school a beautiful place that inspires learning. We have made huge gains in our school improvement efforts and we are grateful for all of the support that has made this possible. We will continue to implement our strategic plan and meet the goals that will take SHS far into the future.
Enjoy these last days of summer and remember to ask God for his guidance as we start a brand new year. Pray with your children. There is no better gift you can give them. This will keep them calm, give them strength, and show them the beauty that makes each of us a special gift.
