News & Notes


Student led conferences are next week.  Please take the time from your busy schedule to attend your child’s conference.  The students have been practicing their presentations, assessing their work and setting goals.  They are anxiously awaiting your arrival.
If you are new to Sacred Heart Cathedral School please take the time to visit our website and read about the benefits of student-led conferences.  This is the third year for such conferences and the students and parents find them very informative.  These conferences help the student assess their work and set goals for the future.  We will re-visit goals at the end of the third quarter.kimbell

Pumpkin Bread Sale!

It’s that time of year again!  We are gearing up to host The Great Pumpkin Run on deadline_extension
Saturday, November 5, 2016. We are asking each Sacred Heart family to bake 2 loaves of our famous (and delicious) pumpkin bread to send in for the race on Saturday.

SHCS has its own Pumpkin Bread recipe, so we came up with this easy way to help you make your loaves even with your hectic schedules. It can be time-consuming and difficult to go out and buy all the ingredients to make Pumpkin Bread, so we say… just purchase it from us! We will do all the measuring, all you need to do is add the wet ingredients and bake! How easy is that? Each bag will have enough dry ingredients to make two loaves.

Just download and fill out the order form and send it together with your payment marked “Pumpkin Bread” by Tuesday, October 25th. We will have your order ready for baking by Friday, October 28th. This should give you plenty of time to get those loaves baked and turned into the front office by Thursday, November 3rd.

We will also be selling our own Sacred Heart Pumpkin Bread Recipe Mix in festive Mason Jars. What a great gift to give during the Thanksgiving Holiday. They sell for $6 for one jar or $10 for two jars. This little fundraiser has raised hundreds of dollars for our school. Let’s keep this tradition going. Thank you for supporting your PTO. We look forward to your order and HAPPY BAKING!
