There will be no basketball practice on Wednesday, December 2nd. The gym is going to be used for the Advent Family Spiritual Evening.
In one week, we will be celebrating Thanksgiving. On this day, we take time to be with family and friends. I encourage all of you to stop and reflect on our own personal blessings and our blessings as a school and parish community. We are all very grateful for our students, staff, and parent community who reflect all that Sacred Heart Cathedral represents. You and your family and loved ones will be in my prayers this Thanksgiving season. From everyone here at Sacred Heart Cathedral School, we extend our blessings for a peaceful and restful Thanksgiving and feeling God’s love in our hearts.

Dear Parents and Guardians,
Our first Family Spiritual Evening will be held during the first week of Advent, on Wednesday, December 3, 2015. The evening will begin with a chili dinner, prepared and served by our teachers. We will meet in the gym where dinner will be served. Just bring your family to enjoy. We appreciate you, our parents, and welcome you in partnership during the spiritual development of your child(ren) throughout the year, but especially during this Advent season.
Following dinner, Mr. Hartwell will present a reflection on “Celebrating the Presence not the presents”. This short reflection will be followed up with age-appropriate discussion groups. The teachers will be leading the discussion groups. Everyone will then come together for an Advent family activity where the families will be given the supplies to make an Advent wreath for the home. The evening will begin at 5:30 and will finish no later than 7:30.
Please plan to join us for this evening of spiritual growth during the Advent season. We look forward to the opportunity to grow together as a family community in anticipation of the celebration of Christmas.
Please RSVP by November 30th, so we have enough supplies…
You may send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org indicating family name and number attending or send an email to your child’s primary teacher. Thank you for all you do in partnership with us in promoting our Catholic identity within our schools and families.
Please remember to turn in your photo orders. The due date is tomorrow, Friday, November 13th, but they will still be accepted Monday, November 16th.
Please remember to send in the order form, along with payment. Checks should be made payable to Tim Ludvigsen. We hope to have the pictures back in time for Thanksgiving.
Beginning next week, our students in Kindergarten through 6th grade will participate in the CHILD SAFETY MATTERS program funded by the Monique Burr Foundation for Children. This is a comprehensive, developmentally appropriate prevention program that is backed by research. This program educates and empowers students with strategies to prevent and respond to unsafe situations including bullying, cyberbullying, digital abuse, and all types of child abuse.
Gulf Coast Kid’s House has generously offered to provide this for us and allow their trained facilitators to present in the classroom with Mrs. Adams in Guidance. You may learn more about this program by visiting www.mbfchildsafetymatters.org. There is a Parent and Community component in addition to the school curriculum.
Please feel free to contact Mrs. Adams with any questions or concerns.
