Sewing Club for 4th-6th Grade Students

Sewing Club is open to all students in 4th-6th grade. They are artfully taught by Mrs. Amthor and Mrs. Smith and we are truly grateful for the time they spend sharing their talents with your children. This year they are making quilts and "something special" for the experienced sewers. As you can see, the results are spectacular. What a great life skill!

Rice Bowls and Purple Children's Lenten Books were sent home this week to help your children Pray, Fast and Share this Lent

Lenten thoughts from Sacred Heart School

What is God pulling at you to change? How does God want to use you to make the world better?

Leading up to Lent, the children took the time to think deeply about the ways in which they are tempted to sin, beginning with an examination of consciousness. They were asked the questions: Do I pout? Do I talk back? Do I share my things, time or gifts willingly? Am I unmotivated to help around the house? Do I leave a mess for others? Do I put my best effort into my work or do I just get by? Do I have a bad habit? Am I over eating sugar or snacks? Do I spend too much time in front of a screen?

These are big questions but as we all know the intention is to be better humans; to seek a more disciplined, heaven worthy, path to travel in our time on Earth. During Lent, we are asked to pray to God to protect us from temptation and the false promises of the devil. We stumble, we trip, we might even lose sight, but failure is not an option. We must get back on our Lenten trail and fight. How? Prayer, fasting and almsgiving, of course. We all know that is what Lent is all about. It is because without them, we will surely lose our way and miss the point of Easter. We are all in this Lent together.

Here are some thoughts for children and adults about the big three:

Prayer- At SHS, we gather every morning and afternoon to pray together and share our prayer needs with each other. It is a time to talk about our Lenten journey and to be reminded of our daily call to holiness. The students learn about Jesus and His life in the classroom and we come together for Mass and Holy Eucharist on Friday and with our families on Sunday. We hope this inspires your children to walk with Jesus and to feel His love and protection all day.

Fasting- What are you specifically fasting from this Lent? Is it sugar? Or gossip? Arguing? Judgement? Not loving yourself? Social media? Over indulgence? Talking too much?

Almsgiving- Do you complain when you should be patient? Are you avoiding ways that you could be helping? Are you overlooking someone’s kindness? Do you expect people to serve you or do you pitch in without complaining? Are you listening without interjecting yourself? Are you taking care of the people God puts on your path? Do you go out of your comfort zone to be friendly and helpful?

Oh sweet Lent! There is just so much we can get better at. One day, one prayer, one kindness, one thoughtful act at a time!

God bless,

Anne Atkin, principal

An Idea For Your Lenten Friday Dinner

Classic Tuna Melt

PREP TIME10 mins



SERVINGS4 sandwiches


  • 1 thinly sliced green onion, including the greens

  • 3 tablespoons chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley

  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh tarragon leaves, or 2 teaspoons dried tarragon, crumbled

  • Zest of one lemon

  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice

  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard

  • 1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

  • 1/3 cup mayonnaise

  • 2 (6-ounce) cans solid white tuna, well drained and flaked

  • 8 slices French or Italian loaf bread (or your favorite bread), sliced 1/2-inch thick

  • 1 thinly sliced tomato (8 slices)

  • 4 ounces grated sharp white cheddar cheese (about 1 cup)

  • 2 tablespoons softened butter


  1. Make the tuna mixture:

    Mix the green onion, parsley, tarragon, lemon juice, lemon zest, Dijon mustard, black pepper, and mayonnaise in a medium sized bowl. Add the drained tuna, mixing with a fork to break up the flakes.

  2. Prepare the tuna melts for the griddle:

    Lay out four slices of bread. Divide the tuna mixture evenly onto the slices. Top each bread slice with tomato slices and grated cheese. Spread one side of the remaining four bread slices with butter. Place bread slices, buttered side up, on top of the cheese.

  3. Cook tuna melts on the first side:

    Heat a large griddle, on medium heat (or couple cast iron skillets). Place the sandwiches, buttered side down, onto the hot griddle. Gently spread butter on top of the bread slices. Cook for about 3 minutes, or until nicely browned on one side.

  4. Flip and cook the other side:

    Use a metal spatula to lift up the sandwiches and carefully turn them to the other side. Cook for another 3 minutes or so, until the second side is browned.

  5. Serve immediately.
