2018-2019 Athletics

Parents,sports

If your child is interested in playing any sports for Sacred Heart next year, please complete the short survey linked here: 2018-2019 Sports Survey Link . This will help us to disseminate information on those sports to you as well as to help us prepare for the number of teams, uniform needs, scheduling demands, etc.

Coaching — we need coaches! We will not be able to field teams unless we have a coach for each one. If you are interested in coaching or volunteering in any way, please indicate that on your survey and I will fill you in with all the details of what is required and what to expect.

FOOTBALL — URGENT — Football begins training in the summer, and we will need to get coaches lined up now. It takes multiple coaches to run an effective football program, so please consider helping out. There is a place on the survey to indicate your preference of head coach, assistant coach or volunteer.

CHEER — URGENT — We will need to order cheerleader uniforms in the next two weeks due to the long lead time. We need a coach for this program and/or someone who can coordinate the uniform order. Please indicate on the survey if you are interested and able to help.

There will be costs associated with playing; however, the survey is for informational purposes only and will not commit you to playing or paying the fees. To be eligible to play, a student must maintain a 2.0 GPA and maintain a D or higher grade in each of their core classes. Grades of all athletes will be checked on a weekly basis.

If you have any questions, comments or would like to discuss any of the details, please contact Coach Kelly at kcomerford@shcs.ptdiocese.org or at (850) 393-9340.

Thank you.

Principal’s News & Notes

May Greetings,snow

We honored two very special faith celebrations this past week.

The 8th grade were recognized for their growth in their faith throughout these past years at Sacred Heart Cathedral School in our annual “ribbon pinning” ceremony, this past Friday. As is the tradition, the 8th graders are “pinned with a ribbon” by their 2nd grade buddies reminding everyone of our mission here at Sacred Heart Cathedral School. The 8th graders then give their parents a rose recognizing their parents’ commitment towards sending them to Catholic Schools and the sacrifices involved.

Then on Sunday, I was able to witness our families bring forth their child to celebrate the sacrament of First Eucharist. I also had the special honor to be able to be a Eucharistic minister during this celebration. I am so blessed to be part of this community. I am continually humbled as I serve as your servant leader. Thank you for your continued support as we continually move forward developing our faith community.

Our virtue for the month of May is zeal. Zeal is explained as love in action. As explained by the the Holy Cross Priests, the congregation of Bishop Bill, to serve with zeal is “to make God known, loved, and served, and thus save souls” – that was the charge that Blessed Basile Moreau, founder, gave the Congregation of Holy Cross. This virtue is explicitly important to our diocese as reinforced by our bishop.

As we move forward, I have some dates to share with you. This Friday is the Crowning of Mary where the 2nd grade students will crown Mary. All members of our school are asked to bring flowers to contribute to this special recognition to Mary. The 8th graders will have their traditional final end of the year retreat this Wednesday. They will attend the 8 a.m. Mass with the parish. They will then walk to Bayview Park for their retreat led by Mr. James Redding. The retreat is followed by confession and Adoration.

The 8th grade took the ACRE on Monday and the 5th grade will be taking the ACRE Tuesday and Thursday. This test is a composite analysis of understandings of the faith and morality.

There are some end of the year fieldtrips which are grade specific. 4th grade had a blast on Monday, 5th grade is next, followed by 2nd grade.

The 8th grade finals will be published to parents/students. Finals for 6th and7th grade will also be published this week.

Our wonderful elementary students are enjoying learning, reading and sharing with one another. These young people are just fantastic as they are so open to learning and excelling. It is incredible to see first graders learning double digit subtraction!

Father James, Mrs. Barry, Mr. Schmitz, Mr. Elting, Mrs. Poller and yours truly took our 8th graders on an amazing trip to Tallahassee. We shared meals together on our way from Pensacola to Tallahassee and back again, enjoyed some sightseeing including the new and old capital, the museum, and Wakulla Springs. The highlight was definitely lunch on the 6th floor terrace at the FSU stadium and time just spent to explore and spend time with friends. We ended the day having dinner at one of Father James’ hangouts at Wakulla Springs. It was a locally owned restaurant and the food was terrific! Again, a great time for this class to just spend time with one another and enjoy sharing a meal together. I repeatedly heard comments about how considerate our students were and their kind manners. This was truly one of the best fieldtrips!

Congratulations to our track team! Not only have they continued the tradition of excellence, but they showed Sacred Heart Cathedral School mission as everyone rallied around Joey Camposagrado and his continued efforts to improve from his brain bleed that occurred during practice. This track meet wasn’t about accomplishment, but support for Joey. Thank you, everyone for your prayers and support for Joey’s family.

8th grade graduation is May 21st at 5:30.kimbell

Kindergarten graduation is May 22nd at 10 a.m., and our last day of school is Friday, May 25th .

As always, my prayers for blessings as you continually support our school and faith community,
Blessings,
Elizabeth and Dave

For over thirty (30) years Pierrette has touched the lives of countless children at the school and church through her teaching in the classroom, teaching Religious Education classes, tutoring and coordinating First Reconciliation and First Holy Communion.

Pierrette had a wonderful sense of humor and always greeted her friends with a warm hug.

The Sacred Heart community will miss her and we offer our condolences to her daughter, Danielle.  You will be in our thoughts and prayers.

Prayer Request

Please remember the Camposagrado family in your prayers.  Joey is in 5th grade. prayerrequest2

Joey was hit in the head with a ball during Monday’s track practice. While a complete accident, this incident resulted in Joey being admitted to Sacred Heart Hospital  where he  is currently in Pediatric  ICU.

We visited Joey and his family today and he seems to be doing well, although tired. His spirits are always positive as he is more concerned about others than himself.

As a family community, please remember Joey and his family in your prayers this week.  If all goes well, Joey may be able to leave the hospital this weekend.
