Sacred Heart School

Week of Dec. 15th

Time to celebrate

I'm sitting on a train, on my way to New York City, smiling and feeling that amazing sense of relief: the "IT'S OVER!" feeling.

This weekend, take time to enjoy an extra cup of tea or coffee and just enjoy the fact that we are on the downhill. We have one week of school left before a 2 week break. Hallelujah!

I'm happy to say that this week at school can be all about you. Enjoy 4 days of uninterrupted teaching time, a half day on Friday, and the best part of all, our staff party on Thursday!

Merry, Merry Christmas and Feliz Navidad!

Sacred Heart teachers are the best!

Thank you for continuing to push your students academically, even throughout the holiday season!

Rehearsal Craziness!

But in the end, it was all worth it!

Las Posada

Friday, Dec. 19th, 10am


We're going to have a very special Posada celebration this year. Ms. Sandra has arranged for a Columbian musician to come and put on a performance for the students. Sr. Ana Maria is organizing a prayer service and Kindergarten is going to be acting out the Posada.

More details to follow.

Half Day

Saturday, Dec. 13th, 12:15pm


Friday will be a half day with no after care. If you send out emails to parents, please remind them there will be no after care on Friday.

If you are planning on having a class party on Friday, I recommend planning something simple that can happen in the morning. From 10-12, we will be involved with Posada activities. Perhaps hot chocolate and a movie or doughnuts could be a good plan!
