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.
