Sacred Heart Weekly Update
October 18, 2021
From the Principal
With being said, please be patient through this process. I may not answer your phone calls and emails right away as my focus will be on teaching, planning and grading. I am blessed to have such a great staff. They are jumping in to support me and each other by picking up some extra duties. Spread the news that we are hiring. Many of our teachers have found out about positions at Sacred Heart Catholic School through word of mouth.
If you need help with Educate, hot lunch, or TADS, please contact Sarah Bowback.

Deadline to order: October 19th.
