Principal’s News & Notes

Greetings,snow

As we prepare for our final liturgy this morning and reflect on our year, I want to thank you for your support to continue to make Sacred Heart Cathedral School truly a family where we continually live our mission to serve others and reach for academic excellence. From the many volunteers who continually help at our school, to those who offer their assistance financially to continue to develop our school, I sincerely thank you for all that you do. Our children are the best; they are bright, articulate, kind and loving. However, most of all, they utilize their faith to make a difference in our world. There are so many stories I could share from a young student who gave away his money for a great cause, to the student who volunteered to spend his summer helping others. This community of families is the best. Everyone who visits our school comments on how friendly the students are and how happy they seem. That is such a tribute to you, our parents, and the teachers who work with our students daily. It is truly a special privilege to be part of this community.

As we end our year, we end on a very special note. Our first-grade teacher, Miss Sarah Payne, will be married at our 8 a.m. Mass. The first-grade students are very excited as they are the honorary “attendants”. You are all welcome to join us at our liturgy. Cake will be served after the Mass in Ave Maria Hall. We will all miss Sarah as she begins her married life in San Diego. However, she promises to return to visit.

There are a few other teacher positions that will be changing for the 2017-2018 school year. While we have interviewed and chosen candidates, the candidates are in process with the diocesan screening procedures. Consequently, I will write to you when all of the candidate positions are finalized.kimbell

Blessings to you and your family for a safe and faith-filled summer,

Letter from the Principal

Greetings,snow

Thank you for all of your support and assistance this year as we worked together as a family for the successes of our wonderful young people.  We could not have accomplished what we have done without the many hours you have offered as a volunteer, whether it is the help you have provided in the kitchen or coaching a sports team.  For every moment you have spent as a volunteer being involved at Sacred Heart Cathedral School, I sincerely thank you.  It has been a privilege to work with everyone, and I am grateful for this opportunity.

A special thank you to Coach Kelly and Coach Shaw for the awesome track victory on Saturday.  I also thank all the parents and students who came to support our team during this event.  You really are the best and you will celebrate your accomplishments as team members during the sports banquet this Saturday evening.

The Ribbon Mass was a beautiful event as our 8th graders wrapped up their day with a retreat planned by Mrs. Jacq Forte.  They certainly enjoyed the setting at Bayview Park and we had a wonderful day.

First Communion is always memorable as these young people move forward in their faith journey. We are looking forward to tomorrow when students, led by the second grade, will bring flowers and recognize Mary as we do every May.

On the academic side,  we are looking forward to middle school finals, some great field trips for the elementary students and two graduations. kimbell

Our 8th grade will graduate on Thursday, May 18th at 5:30 p.m., and our kindergarten students will graduate on Tuesday, May 23rd.

Blessings,

Elizabeth and Dave
