As we continue with our Lenten journey together as a school and parish community, I share with you some of our Lenten reflections. Led by Mr. Redding and his team, the middle school students will experience their retreat tomorrow morning in Ave Maria Hall beginning at 8 a.m. Also led by Mr. Redding and his team, the fourth and fifth grade students will experience a retreat on Tuesday, March 19, also in Ave Maria Hall. The lower elementary students will experience a mini retreat which will be held in their classrooms. As a school community, we continue the journey of the Stations of the Cross every Friday at 2 p.m. You are welcome to join us for this prayerful afternoon.
The Terra Nova tests have been sent in for grading. I will be in touch to explain the scores when we have the school results. I was at the Florida Catholic Conference this past week in Orlando. This conference is held every two years. Principals, assistant principals and superintendents meet and attend classes for three days. I was able to attend many sessions on Apple education. I am excited and looking forward to our continued relationship with Apple.
At the end of student-led conferences, our middle school science olympiad team is traveling to Orlando for state completion on Saturday, March 30. Mr. Kimbell is off to an accreditation visit this week and I will be chairing an accreditation visit in Clearwater the first week of April. Our own accreditation visit is set for April 30. More information on this as we progress through our material.
Trivia Night was a huge success and record setting funds were raised for this 9th consecutive annual event. Please plan ahead to participate next year as we celebrate our 10th year anniversary. A special thank you to the many people who continually organize and support this event.
Thank you for your continued support. You are the best as you support our mission at Sacred Heart Cathedral School.
There will be altar server training provided this Friday morning after the School Mass. Training will be led by Fr. James and Mr. Reding.
This is available for any Catholic students in grades 3-8 who have not yet been trained on how to serve Mass at the Cathedral.

School parents are invited to participate in our Lenten Group Study entitled “No Greater Love; A Biblical Walk Through Christ’s Passion”. This is taking place in Ave Maria Hall on Sundays during Lent from 9:15-10:30 and child care is offered.
No pre-registration is necessary and materials are available but not required.
This is an excellent opportunity to learn and grow during this Lenten season. Please join us!
