Dear ,

Dear Sacred Heart Families,
As we enter the month of May and the home stretch of the 2017- 2018 school year, I'd like to focus on two items:
  • This school year has had its share of highlights, but there are two examples that I would like to share. First, I was very impressed with our tradition of Village- a- thon. Seeing the students walk the grounds of Greenfield Village, learning and having fun was a great treat. This was made possible by the hard work of the teachers and the generosity of the parent volunteers. My other highlight was the Legacy Raffle Drawing and Corned Beef Dinner. From the help of volunteers to the Parish presence at the dinner, this was truly a community event.
  • Since we are entering the finals weeks of the school year, I am reminding all students that this is the time to show your parents and teachers how great of a student you can be by living our school mission of academic excellence, practicing your faith, and to perform the good deeds that Jesus inspired us to do.

Thank you and God Bless,

Mr. Yee, Principal
