The calendar for the last quarter of the school year is filling up quickly. It is such a fun time of year when we can get outside and plan the classroom field trips. The students are doing a great job meeting their reading goals and the teachers are pushing through the last sections of the curriculum. Check out the newsletter for all information about the school.
We are so blessed to have such wonderful children and families at Sacred Heart School. As the sun finally pokes out of winter, we are looking toward finishing out the school year with a lot of activity. It is a fun time of year as we plan Grandparent’s day, field day, graduation and many class field trips.
Please see the newsletter for all information and upcoming activities.
We traveled to Chelsea, Detroit and Traverse City this week as part of our “Road trip through Michigan.” The teachers and students have made each classroom destination fun and interesting. We made fossils in the kindergarten room, learned many fun facts about Detroit and even ate some chocolate covered cherries in Traverse City. Father Joe was our Mystery Reader and he shared his hidden talent of busting tongue twisters. We were very impressed!
The students have been working at finding joy even when they do not feel positive about the way their day is going. Growing up can be challenging but we never have to be alone because Jesus is always with us.
State Representative Bronna Kahle was our mystery reader this week and she answered the student’s questions about the state and local government.
We are also very excited for tonight’s Open House where we can have breakfast for dinner, visit the 5th/6th grade wax museum, join the Book Swap, Read Under the Stars or have a dance party in the gym. Feel free to join the festivities tonight.
We are having a Pirate Party on March 22nd! All 3,4,and 5-year-old children are invited to our Open House. See which one of our programs is the right fit for your student. Sacred Heart offers preschool, developmental kindergarten and kindergarten. We have the perfect class to fit your needs. This is the best time to meet the teachers and experience the positive effect our programs can have on the future of your child. Enrollment packets are available in the school office, on the website or at the Open House. Spots will fill quickly.
At Sacred Heart School, we have been reading, reading, reading. The classrooms are being decorated to look like a favorite city in Michigan. The preschool has store fronts that look like Mackinaw City and they are even constructing the Mackinaw Bridge! The other classrooms will be decorated to look like Traverse City, Detroit, Lansing and the kindergarten room has a Woolly Mammoth on display as they represent Chelsea. We are looking forward to visiting all of these wonderful destination cities as we “Take A Road Trip Through Michigan.”

Here is a look at what is happening this week at Sacred Heart School. We are talking about perseverance and how to be the “light of Christ” when we do the work that makes us smarter. March is Reading Month has officially begun and the students will spend the month reading as they travel through Michigan. “A Road Trip Through Michigan” is the theme and we can’t wait to explore our beautiful state.
The students have been reading for 20 minutes every night since the beginning of the year. They have made a lot of progress with their reading ability. The NWEA tests scores for reading have gone up across all levels. Way to go SHS!
