Parent Teacher Conferences---October 18-19 2:30-7:00 pm

Parent teacher conferences are a great opportunity to share academic progress and growth based on classroom observations, assessments, assignments and time for parents to share their child's strengths, needs, behaviors, and learning styles.

We have decided to give parents the option to meet with teachers in-person or choose to meet using Zoom. Many parents appreciated this option if they were at work. Our goal is that we meet with 100% of our parents.

All parents must reserve a time on SignUp whether you are meeting in-person or with Zoom. You may also meet with any specialists as well.

Middle school parents--You may choose to meet with any middle school teacher that you feel you need to connect with.

Here is the link to sign up for conferences:

November Lunches

November lunches will be ready for ordering by the end of the day TODAY!. Please order the entire month at a time.

Deadline to order: October 19th.

Our Amazing Middle School

The 6th-8th graders spent the whole day with the NET Ministries team playing games, having small group discussion, listening to talks about being made in God’s image, hearing testimonies from the NET team about their encounters with Christ, praying in Eucharistic Adoration, and going to Confession. The kids already asked if they can go on another retreat!

Our students received praises from the NET Ministries team saying how respectful and kind they were throughout the day. We have the best students!

Parent/Student Handbook Reminders


If a student wishes to bring a birthday treat or special treat for a celebration, we mandate that he/she refrain from bringing a food and/or drink. Other options could include pencils, stickers or a book donated to the classroom or the library in the child’s name commemorating the special day. The school does celebrate birthdays by announcing over the intercom and acknowledging in the classroom. Birthday students may be out of uniform on this special day. We will celebrate June, July, August birthdays at the ½ year mark.

Because we are a small school and wish to maintain an inclusive environment, we ask that ALL invitations be mailed and gift giving take place outside school. A class list may be requested at the school office.


Regular attendance and punctuality are absolutely necessary if a child is to do his/her best in school. You must call and inform the school if your child is ill, absent, or tardy, for ANY reason with a note or phone call. To report an absence/truancy call the Absence Line before 7:45 a.m. at 763.537.1329 VM297.

State your child’s name, grade and reason for absence. ***If parents have not informed us about their child’s whereabouts, with a phone call prior to the absence, we call you to check on your child.

Quiz Bowl Team---Grades 6-8----Sign up Now

What is Quiz Bowl?

Quiz bowl is a fast-paced competition in which teams of students answer questions about history, science, literature, art, geography, current events, popular culture, and pretty much anything else. A team wins when individuals “buzz in” and answer tossup questions as well as when the team collaborates on more challenging bonus questions.

Who can compete?

Quiz bowl is open to students in grades 6-8. Each team will consist of 5-6 students. Sacred Heart will compete in tournaments run by the National Academic Quiz Tournaments (NAQT).

When are the Tournaments?

Middle school quiz bowl tournaments are generally held on Saturdays with preliminary games in the morning and playoffs in the early afternoon. Tournaments begin in January and continue until mid-March.

When are the practices?

Quiz bowl practices will begin the week of October 18th. A practice schedule will be determined once students sign up. Students will practice answering questions using the buzzer system and working as a team. Because we want to represent Sacred Heart well and because practice makes us more competitive, please do your best to attend practices and tournaments. If there are conflicts, be sure to communicate them with the coach.

How Do I Sign Up?

Contact Mrs. Leisgang or Michael Satterfield, this year’s coach, to sign up for a Quiz Bowl team. You can email them at or Please contact us by October 15th.
