September School wide Learning Expectation: Spiritual growth in the Catholic faith – What we need is to love without getting tired. How does a lamp burn? Through the continuous input of small drops of oil. What are these drops of oil in our lamps? They are the small things of daily life: faithfulness, small words of kindness, a thought for others, our way of being silent, of looking, of speaking, and of acting. Mother Teresa (St. Teresa of Calcutta)
The message above, from Saint Teresa of Calcutta, reminds me of our school prayer, as we ask Jesus to help us love those around us, and ourselves. We have incredible opportunities each and every day to share Christ’s love with those around us. I pray that we are all able to see and act on those opportunities. I believe that our school and community are great examples of those small acts of kindness and love.
I hope to see you all at Parent Night this evening. This is a parent only event, and is your opportunity to get into the classrooms and hear from your children’s teachers. We are sending the evening’s schedule home via our app today, and will have copies available tonight. I will see you at 6:00 in the gym!
Next Monday we will host Grandparents Day at Sacred Heart School. This is a fun day for families and students as we welcome these special people to join us at school. Grandparents are invited to join us for Monday morning prayer to start our day. After that, we will have donuts for all students and grandparents out on the patio. After students and grandparents enjoy a donut together, we will invite students to take their grandparents on a tour of their classrooms. We will try to wrap up the morning around 9:30, to get students back to their regular school day. We are so grateful and proud of the community we have here at Sacred Heart Catholic School and want to take this opportunity to celebrate and thank our grandparents for their support of our families. I hope they can join us on Monday!
The Sacred Heart Knights of Columbus are holding their 6th Annual “Angel Fund” Golf Scramble on Friday, September 13th. This annual event provides scholarship funds for our school. It is an incredible blessing to be able to provide scholarship assistance to families who need a little extra help to get their children to our school. I am so grateful to our Knights, for their support and efforts! If you have not already signed a team up to play in the scramble, now is the time to do so! You can find information and a registration form on our website. Thank you for your support, and I hope to see you at this fun event!
We are preparing to hold our Student Council Officer elections. These offices are open to 7th and 8th grade students. They are signing up to run for office this week, and will have next week to campaign. Candidate speeches and elections will take place on Monday, Sep. 16th. If your student is interested in running for office (President, Vice President, Secretary, or Treasurer), they need your permission to do so. Also, we would really like parents of our officers to be involved in this group activity. Parent responsibilities would be helping to coordinate certain school events like Red Ribbon Week. If you have questions, please contact our Student Council Advisor, Mrs. Cheri Workman.
If you see Mrs. Hentges tomorrow, wish her a Happy Birthday!!!
I pray that you all have a blessed weekend!
