Living Stations--8th grade

Thank you to our 8th graders and Ms. Timmerman for their beautiful living stations service. This group has shown great leadership in our school and church all year long. We are proud of them!

Changes to our safety protocol plan

We continue to sanitize throughout the school and make sure all areas are clean, including hand washing throughout the day. We continue to wear masks (please make sure your child's mask is clean) and keep social distancing.

We have decided to eliminate temperature taking in the morning starting today. We feel this protocol is not necessary in the morning.

Fish Fry online ordering site is now ready for online orders for Friday, March 26th. Please pre-order by Friday, 4:00 pm. After 4:00 pm, please call 763-537-4561 to place your order.

Thank you for supporting our read-a-thon!

Gerten's Spring Plant Fundraiser 2021 Online Orders due April 7th.

Our Gerten's spring plant sale continues to grow each year. We sold a record number of plants last spring and the plants truly were beautiful.

This year, we decided to transition to online ordering and paying by credit card. Profits will be 30% of total sales. So this is the last chance you have to fulfill your $300 fundraising commitment per child.

Customers will log into the Gerten's website, enter our school code 145, scroll through the photos/descriptions of plants and check out using a credit card. At check out, customers will write in your child's name so you receive credit for the order. We have perennials, annuals, vegetables, planters and hanging baskets.

Pass the website and school code to your family and friends. School Code--145

Delivery Date: May 6th---Just in time for Mother's Day

Click here to order your Gertens plants. Code---145

We are selling from February 22-April 8th

Used Uniforms

Parents may continue to drop off gently used uniforms now through the end of the year. Please leave uniforms at the table inside Door 8. We would like to have another used uniform sale in June. Our last sale was a huge hit and our supply needs to be restocked. We are NOT collecting marathon t-shirts.

Parent resources to promote equity

Are you looking for resources to promote equity with your child(ren)? You might find these websites, books and charities helpful. I received this list from another principal and I thought you might find them helpful.

Please send CLEAN masks to school with your child

We are noticing dirty and wet face masks at school. Please make sure your child has a clean mask each day and send an extra mask in your child's backpack if possible.

Thank you

Traveling out of state

The School Advisory Council reviewed our travel policy last Wednesday night and we have decided to continue with our current travel policy until the end of the year. We have been very fortunate that we have had very few COVID cases at school and we want to continue with our current safety protocols. We know there are always certain circumstances, so please contact Karen Bursey to talk about your trip and the expectations for when you return.

Travel Policy

If students/staff travel out of state, then one of the following will be required:

1. Students/staff may return after 7 days as long as a COVID test is taken 3-5 days after returning from your trip and the test is negative.

2. Students/staff may return after 14 days if NO COVID test was taken after you returned from your trip.

Please help us spread the word about Sacred Heart Catholic School

Our best marketing tool we have is our families. Please let your friends and neighbors know about Sacred Heart. We have already started enrolling new families for the 2021-2022 school year.

There are many dissatisfied families in the Robbinsdale School District and we want to share the success Sacred Heart has had this school year We are so fortunate to have our school doors open, welcoming our students each morning. Plus we have the additional $150 incentive for all new kindergarteners that register before January 31, 2020. See below.
