Dear ,

As we approach the end of April and the end of the cold weather, there are many exciting events and developments at Sacred Heart. Please take a moment to consider the following:
  • Congratulations to the 2nd graders for their first Communion last Sunday
  • My thoughts and prayers will be with the 8th graders as they become fully initiated in the Catholic Church
  • Be sure to place your order for the Fun Picture Day on the 27th. All participants will receive a casual day.
  • Sacred Heart will be recognizing all current and retired first responders at the May 16th mass. Please encourage any first responder that you may know to attend the Mass and reception.
  • Due to the generosity of the Sacred Heart community, we will begin the process of upgrading the school computers in the computer lab and the classrooms.

Finally, preparation for the 2018- 2019 school year is underway. If you have any feedback on how to make Sacred Heart a better school for both you and your child, please do not hesitate to contact myself or fill out the survey below.

Thank you and God Bless,

These pictures should be just of your child and around 4 x 6 in size, if possible.
