Notes and News

Dear SHGS Families,


I pray this newsletter finds you and your family well. I hope you had a wonderful Memorial Day weekend.


For those that have already registered for next year, I thank you for your commitment to Catholic education and to Sacred Heart Grade School. If you have not already done so, please register your children for the upcoming 2020-21 school year. Take advantage of our registration incentive rate, which allows you to save $100 on the registration fee for each child if you complete your registration by May 31st.


We are in the process of bagging up all the students' belongings from their desks, classrooms, and lockers. We plan to schedule pick up outside at SHGS on June 8th Grades K, 1 & 2 at 10:00-10:30, Grades 3 & 4 11:00-11:30, Grades 5, 6, & 7 12:00-12:30. At these times, you may also pick up your yearbook.


We have our final Wacky Wednesday in May, please encourage your child/family to participate (Patriotic Day- wear Red, White, and Blue)). Please be sure to send us your photos.


Please join us in honoring our graduate class with daily Twitter Spotlights. You may access our Twitter feed via the bottom of this Newsletter or via our school website.


I know it is very disappointing to not have our graduating/moving up days in person. However, the teachers and I have been planning various ways to continue our traditions virtually. We will update you as we confirm our plans.


Thank you for your continued support. We miss your children, our staff, and our school community. Stay safe and stay healthy. Please reach out to me with any questions.


Warm Regards,

Tracy Strub
