This Week At SHOJ

Feb. 12, 2021

From Mrs. Rhodes

I compared last year's super bowl celebration to this year's and I was very sad - mostly because of the game outcome. I then started thinking about the other changes in the past year. In some aspects, I can't believe that it has been a year with Covid. In other ways, it seems that it has been forever! At the same time, I can see positive changes that have happened as well as negative. I do know that we are blessed to have been in school where we can support our students and families.

Please take a moment to read the counselor's note below and of course, reach out to them if they can help. We need to take care of each other.

We are moving ahead with our planning for the next year. The most important factor is enrollment, please take care of this as soon as possible.

Below you will find the first draft of the 21-22 school year calendar. As a staff, we need to work out somethings for the 2nd quarter conferences if February, so that is not finalized yet, but most dates are pretty certain.

Can you believe Covid has been here almost a year?

We are approaching ONE year since the beginning of this strange pandemic and we here in the SHOJ counseling department are dedicated to upholding the mental health of our Sacred Heart students and staff. We recognize the added worry and frustrations many students are experiencing as a result of the current Covid way of life. It’s more difficult than ever for kids to rely on and anticipate the future. Visiting grandparents, attending birthday parties, or just simply being able to see each other’s’ faces are distant memories for some. We know that any time a child faces these kinds of significant changes, it can cause fear, anxiety, and sadness. We want to invite you to take another look at the signs of anxiety and depression so that we can work together to protect our students and help them manage their stress, worries, and sadness. Please see the attached PDF below.

WE ARE ONE more than ever before. Mrs. Tinker and Mrs. Schierts are honored to be mental health resources for you at SHOJ and are ready to provide confidential support for you and your family in any way we can. Please reach out anytime if you have any questions or concerns about your student’s mental health.
