Notes and News

Dear SHGS Families,

I pray this newsletter finds you and your family well. I hope you had a wonderful weekend and enjoyed the beautiful weather.

Congratulations to our graduates!! We are so proud of each one of them and wish them all the best in High School!

As we begin the last week of this school year, I would like to thank each of you for your continued support throughout this unprecedented Spring. I genuinely appreciate your flexibility as we switched from in-person learning to remote learning. I am blessed to have such an incredible staff and student body that were able to make this learning switch within a week. I know it wasn’t easy and we had some bumps along the way; however, I am so impressed and proud of everyone!

I do not know what the Fall will bring, but I will keep you all informed via my newsletter as I receive information.

We wish you all a fabulous Summer. Stay safe and stay healthy.

Warm Regards,

Tracy Strub

Refund for Registration Fee

Each family who enrolls for school year 2020-21 (and remains enrolled) will receive a credit on their December 2020 tuition bill for the full amount of the registration fees they paid. We hope that this small gesture shows our families how much we appreciate the sacrifices they make to provide a Catholic education for their children and are deeply grateful for their faith in us. Both New and Returning families are eligible to receive this credit. Families who have ALREADY enrolled will receive the credit, just as families who register from here on in.

Should you have any questions or need assistance in completing the registration or financial aid application, please feel free to contact Linda Millen

Hello fellow students of Sacred Heart Grade School,

To be a part of the National Junior Honor Society is a great honor. Your goal as a student should be to work hard to become a part of the NJHS. This year the NJHS had a rough year, but we did achieve some things. The NJHS had trivia for grades 1st –8th and for reading across America Day, we read to UPK- 4th grade. This year we wanted to be the best NJHS we could be and we wanted to improve last year’s NJHS. We had many struggles, but I think our greatest achievement is this newsletter. It informs the school of the NJHS and all the events that would happen. So as the 8th graders leave Sacred Heart and the NJHS, I hope the new NJHS will be better than ever. I hope you continue the tradition of this newsletter. Let the school know who the NJHS is and never forget to improve on your service, scholarship, leadership, citizenship, and character. Those are the qualities the NJHS needs and strive to improve those qualities. The 8th graders of the NJHS will miss Sacred Heart greatly.

Stay Safe and Have a great summer!!

8th Grade Graduation!! Congratulations to the Class of 2020!!
