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!

Sacred Heart Students Share Acts of Kindness
Last week the 5th and 6th grade students at Scared Heart School made birdhouses during Life Skills Class. The class meets twice a week and the lesson plans include: sewing on a button, packing for a trip, fire safety, first aid, leadership and even restaurant etiquette which ended with a trip to Rumors for lunch. The class is taught by Bev Applegate and she has a passion for these students. She began the year with a lofty goal of giving our students hand-on experiences. She wants them to learn skills that will help them as they grow into adulthood. The students have loved the class and they really enjoy when they get to leave the school and have experiences out in the community.
Mrs. Applegate has woven Random Act of Kindness into the class as a way to teach the students to look outward. It is very important to her that the students push themselves past their comfort level and gain personal experiences. She has asked the students to give away something that they each made, that was special, to a stranger who might be hurting. This proved to be difficult but each one of the students completed the task and found out, that with a little courage, they became stronger people. “This time we are going to spread the kindness to someone we know,” said Applegate. The students are excited to share the completed birdhouses with a parent or close neighbor.
