Catholic Schools Week, January 26 – 30, 2015

National Catholic Schools Week began in 1974 as a way of focusing on the value that Catholic Education provides to young people. While the majority of our students at Sacred Heart School are not Catholic, our Catholic identity is very important in the daily life of our school. We pray together every day. Religion is taught every day in every grade. We stress the importance of discipline, while also teaching kindness, non-violence, respect, care for those in need and the environment. In all this we teach our students to look always to Jesus as their example and to ask Him to help them to be good and holy children of God.

One of the most exciting events during Catholic Schools Week at Sacred Heart is the Knowledge Bee and this year was no exception. The questions were tough and the contestants were really at their best. It was a close match until the very end. We were on the edge of our seats!!! This year, the Knowledge Bee coincided with Mis-Match day. Hence, Ms. Kristin’s interesting outfit and the shoes on two of our contestants.

Our beliefs:

  • It is essential that our faculty and staff strive to educate and model to our students the importance of social justice and to encourage students to be proactive in improving their community.

  • Parents are the primary educators of our students. Therefore, our faculty and staff must work hard to create a partnership between the home and school. That partnership can provide mutual support for the child.

  • It is our responsibility to push education and hard work as the most powerful tools to achieving a better future.

  • A commitment to the continual improvement and growth of our school is essential for the education of our students in preparing them to confront the challenges of their future.

  • Our faculty, staff and students must be strongly encouraged to mirror Christ’s life in showing love of God and each other.

  • Sacred Heart School exists to create a safe, Christian environment for students to be able to excel in education by challenging and empowering them to become responsible and contributing Christians in society.
