Thanks to a student suggestion, the last thing we did before Easter break was pray The Rosary for Ukrainians and peace. It was student led with many volunteers taking turns saying the prayers.

I often have to step in classrooms to see what the noise is about. What a delight to find these 8th graders teaching 2nd graders how to make pipe cleaner bunnies.
Today, 7th graders worked on a photo essay of “ Sacred Heart Through Our Eyes”. They chose images that were iconic when they think of the school they’ve called home since they were 5. Their photos will be combined into a Brown Bottle auction item. Many will recognize this photo (taken by a 7th grader) as the Sacred Heart as it appears on the statue of Jesus in the kindergarten hall. So grateful to be able to see our school the way they see it.

Thankful for the service of 8th graders helping at drop off. We realized this was the beginning of many last things! Looking forward to many celebrations with them!
Sacred Heart parent and CYO coach Don Vergara (pictured with his wife Noreen) was honored Saturday night for his coaching career in CYO. He was recognized for his leadership in representing the positive core values of CYO. So grateful for such an outstanding role model for the Sacred Heart Community! CYO coaches help many students and wonderful memories are made during games and practices. Grateful for all who give so much.
The Sons of the American Revolution presented three 8th grade winners of the Sgt. Moses Adams Memorial Brochure Contest on Thursday. First Place winner, Ella Coup, will advance to the State of Kansas contest. We are proud of all participants!
8th graders looking ahead to graduation are reliving the glory days of younger years by having a movie day in Reading class. They were able to bring a stuffed animal/pillow and a snack. The video was “Purgatory: The Forgotten Church”, (far from a Disney Classic) as they are preparing to read the novel “The Five People You Meet In Heaven”.
