Theme: Who Do You Say that I am
From the Principal's Desk
Dear Sacred Heart Families,
We are getting back into the swing of things and it has been wonderful speaking with the students about their Christmas Break.
This is the last week of the quarter so I ask that you review Gradelock. If you have any questions please contact your child's teacher if you have any questions. Use this link to access Gradelock. https://parentaccess.gradelock.com/Account/Pick.aspx
With the recent changes to the isolation and quarantine procedures as well as the significant rise in cases we have included clarifying information below. Parents should take a few moments to review this information.
As we finalize plans for our Catholic Schools Week celebration at the end of the month I wanted to announce a CHANGE TO OUR SCHOOL CALENDAR. As a special thank you to our incredibly hard working teachers we would like to honor and thank them with a day off. There will be no school on Friday, February 4th. More information related to Catholic Schools Week will be sent home soon.
I wish you a wonderful week!

New Student Referral Program
We have a wonderful program here at Sacred Heart that allows current families to receive a tuition credit for referring a new family to the school. You our current families are our best recruiting tool.
We ask that you share what you love about Sacred Heart and encourage family friends and co-workers to consider our special school for their own children. In the course of you discussions, if you believe that another family is interested please complete the attached form and return it to the school office PRIOR to the new/prospective family contacting us. This is an essential part of the tuition credit program.
Again in order to receive the tuition referral credit you, as a current family, must submit the referral form PRIOR to the new family making contact.
If you have any questions please contact the school or parish office.
