Fourth grade students have wiggled their way through September’s STEM Friday with The Gummy Worm Challenge while kindergarten students created structures and apple volcanoes! October STEM meant the Hurricane Hut Challenge for 4th graders and creating slime while learning about viscosity for kindergarteners! November STEM brought turkey trap designing for 4th graders and density tower construction for kindergartners! Kindergarteners made balloon rockets as they learned about Newton’s Third Law during December STEM. Follow us on Instagram @sacred_heart_grade_school for more fun STEM photos and videos!

Advent…a time of preparation
SHGS students and families filled 183 food boxes to help our neighbors in need in Clay County. Charleston Catholic High School and Sacred Heart Grade School provide food boxes, Christmas presents, and clothing for needy families in Clay County. This holiday service project has been ongoing for over 25 years. We are grateful for the opportunity to serve our brothers and sisters in West Virginia.
“As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them.”
-John Fitzgerald Kennedy
SHGS first graders celebrated the first day of fall on Friday by investigating leaves and learning all they could about Autumn!

Sacred Heart Grade School will join hundreds of schools across the nation next week, January 30-February 3, to celebrate the achievements of Catholic Schools. Below is an outline of our week-long celebration:
Monday: Communities of Faith, Knowledge and Service: In Our Community
To kick off our celebration week, students may dress down. We will also begin our two, week- long service projects. Students will bring in coins and dollars for our annual Pennies for People collection to benefit Sojourners and WV Kids Cancer Crusaders. This year we will also be collecting new and gently used books throughout the week to benefit RISE (Read Inspire Support Encourage), a cooperative between schools and children’s hospitals that provides books for hospitalized children. We will conclude our day with a prayer service.
Tuesday: Communities of Faith, Knowledge and Service: In Our Faculty and Staff
The faculty and staff will enjoy a delicious luncheon graciously provided by our PVA. Thank you! Teachers will also participate in the book drive and will share their favorite book with their class before donating the book to RISE. Tuesday evening is also our OPEN HOUSE for prospective parents.
Wednesday: Communities of Faith, Knowledge and Service: In Our Country
This is a Red, White, and Blue Dress Down Day! During Cultural Explorations class, students will participate in a project to explore the diverse groups that make up our amazing country! We will conclude our day with a Patriotic Sing Along.
Thursday: Communities of Faith, Knowledge and Service: In Our Students
“My Favorite!” Dress Down Day. As we celebrate our students, each student is invited to dress down in clothing that shows something that is their favorite: a team, a school, a book, a place to visit, etc. Each classroom will enjoy Board Games, Books, and Puzzles & Buddies time and are invited to bring their favorite board games, puzzle books, or book to share during free time with friends. No electronic games are permitted. Lunchtime will be pizza, ice cream, and music!
Friday: Communities of Faith, Knowledge and Service: In Our Vocations
Our day will begin with an All-School Mas at 8:00 a.m. We hope you can join us! Students will also participate in a variety of activities to learn more about and show appreciation for vocations.
