Sacred Heart School to Celebrate Annual Catholic Schools Week January 30-February 5

Sacred Heart School is announcing its schedule of events in celebration of the nation-wide, annual Catholic Schools Week which kicks off during Masses the weekend of January 29 and 30 at Sacred Heart Church. This year’s theme is Catholic Schools: Faith. Excellence. Service.  The School’s mission is to provide strong academics and discipline in a family-oriented atmosphere.  Most importantly, we strive to make the presence of Christ felt throughout our classrooms, playground, and extra-curricular activities. We work to serve Christ by serving others, and we provide a wide variety of leadership opportunities in and out of the classrooms. 

Sacred Heart School has an exciting agenda of many fun and meaningful experiences planned for Catholic Schools Week!
