From Our Principal
Hello from Sacred Heart School! Catholic Schools Week is here and gives cause for celebration. The greatest desire of our faculty and staff is to empower our students to reach their fullest moral, spiritual, intellectual, social, and physical potential in order to respond to the evolving demands of the twenty-first century. We see success in the fact that Sacred Heart School has had seven (7) Neumann Scholars in the last twelve years. Our current Eighth Graders are still sorting out acceptances and scholarships from archdiocesan and private high schools. All of our graduates will tell you that they were well prepared for high school. Our academic program has fostered this impressive success rate, and critical to our success is the grounding all of academic endeavors in our faith in Jesus Christ. Students have the opportunity to not only learn their faith, but also live their faith each and every day.
A rigorous academic program requires students to think critically and analytically. Our younger students support their learning with iPads and grades 4 to 8 use their Chrome Books daily. We have a science lab and all students take Spanish. There is a library and computer lab, which as time goes on is being shared with our developing Robotics program. Did you know that students starting in Grade 2 are coding in the lab?
We offer many after school programs for our students. Primary grades can participate in the Crazy Eights Math Club and grades 1 to 5 can become Science Explorers. Students can join Reading Olympics or write articles for the school newspaper. This year’s Future City Club won Most Innovative Environmental Management Award, and the Drama Club is preparing another great show showcasing the amazing talent of our students.
CYO Sports rounds out the many activities offered here. Students are challenged to develop their athletic skills in track and field, soccer, basketball, volleyball, football, and baseball. Good sportsmanship and fair play guide our coaches’ instruction.
So … welcome to Catholic Schools Week at Sacred Heart Parish School, where we recognize each student as an individual loved by God, and seek to form in each student a concern and respect for one other and for all people as brothers and sisters in the Lord.
Mrs. Celie S. Magee, M.Ed.
