Greetings from Sacred Heart of Jesus School!
Sacred Heart of Jesus School welcomes all who seek to grow academically, spiritually, and socially. The 2019-2020 school year will be an exciting adventure filled with opportunities that will bring us closer to Jesus as well as quench our educational thirsts. Our school theme will follow the teachings of Jesus through the Beatitudes. Blessed are the… will guide us in our relationship with Him and each other. Since the Beatitudes are eight in number, each will be our monthly focus throughout the year. Spreading God’s word through our everyday actions and reflecting on those who need our attention through prayer and service is paramount to our Faith.
A warm welcome is extended all new families to Sacred Heart. May your transition to this new environment be satisfying. We pray that our Sacred Heart family will help to create a safe and comfortable atmosphere for your family. God has blessed us with passionate teachers who challenge students and genuinely care about their whole being not just their educational endeavors. They will be eager and willing to lend a hand and a heart.
Our current families, with their physical, spiritual, and financial support have helped to create a reputation of distinction. We are proud of their efforts and accomplishments. Enthusiasm, excitement, and energy engulf our school. We realize that when you entrust your children to us, a safe environment filled with spiritual and educational nourishment is expected and we in turn will do our very best to deliver.
As we reflect on 2018-19, it is obvious our students enjoyed many positive experiences, in and out of the classrooms. As usual, our Science Fair projects were showered with accolades at the regional and state levels and our standardized assessments were successful throughout all grade levels. The 8th grade class will be missed as they provided academic leadership for all to emulate. Artistically, through music, drama, and the visual arts, our students excelled. Two of our students earned Best of Show awards from the Wadsworth Fine Arts Festival. Of the 24 graduating from SHS, many accepted high school scholarships and earned commendations. Most importantly, our spiritual participation from the 8th graders in the Living Stations, Rosary at the Nursing Homes, our self-written Christmas Play, and our service to those in need helped define us. We now challenge our 7th graders to lead by their examples in 2019-20.
Our staff is committed to ensure that each child is handled with love, respect and compassion. As our Mission states: Sacred Heart pledges to: Embrace and teach the Catholic Faith; Welcome all who desire to learn; Provide excellent academics and rich spiritual opportunities; and Live our love for God and others through service. Jesus has taught us to love one another and to love Him unconditionally. Blessed are the Peacemakers for they shall be called the children of God. We embrace the Beatitudes and welcome all of God’s children to experience the ”Heart” in 2019-20.
