Dear Parents and Guardians,
Our Lenten Family Spiritual Evening will be held on Wednesday, February 17, 2016. The evening will begin, in our newly remodeled gym, with dinner that will include soup/salad, bread, and red beans and rice prepared and served by our teachers. 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 Lenten season.
Following dinner, Mr. Hartwell will present a reflection on “what can I do to reach out to others and help someone”. Everyone will then come together for a Lenten family activity where the families will be given the supplies to make a Lenten wreath for your home, culminating in a flower wreath for Easter Sunday. The evening will begin at 5:30 and will finish no later than 7:30.
We hope you will join us for an evening of reflection on our Lenten journey. As we journey through Lent we grow together as a family community in anticipation of celebrating Jesus’ Resurrection on Easter Sunday.
Please plan to join us for this evening of spiritual growth. Please RSVP by February 14 so we have enough supplies…
You may send an email to email@example.com 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.
Order forms were sent home with students this week. If you did not receive one, you can get one in the office, or download the 2016 Yearbook Order Form here.
Hear Ye! Hear Ye!
Trivia Night is one of the big fundraisers for Sacred Heart Cathedral School.
The dessert table is a big hit with participants and would not be what it is, without your continued support.
Desserts can be homemade or purchased and need to be items that do not require refrigeration or utensils.
To donate a sweet treat for this fun event or if you have any questions, please email firstname.lastname@example.org – Jo Elizabeth (Joey) Brown or email@example.com – Dehon Rigney.
Our gym floor is complete! We may use the floor Sunday morning as the paint needs time to cure. The tile floor is being installed today and tomorrow and the pads will be installed early next week. The room looks great, and I thank each one of you for your contribution and support.
As we prepare for Catholic Schools Week (CSW), I would like to share some “statistics” with you about Catholic education. As a tradition, Catholic Schools Week (CSW) occurs during the last week in January. However, this year, the last week begins on Sunday, January 31, 2016, which officially marks the beginning of Catholic Schools Week. During this week, we celebrate our Catholic School along with every other Catholic School in not only the Pensacola-Tallahassee diocese, but in the nation. Currently, there are 6,568 Catholic elementary and secondary schools in our nation. Last year, 27 new Catholic Schools opened across the country, so there is a growing trend in seeing the advantages of a Catholic education.
The theme for Catholic Schools Week is: “Catholic Schools: Communities of Faith, Knowledge, and Service.” We at Sacred Heart Cathedral School support this theme by offering outstanding academic excellence in a faith-filled Catholic environment. Service becomes a way of life for our children, from bringing cans weekly to our liturgies to embracing monthly service projects.
We will begin our week with a school-led Mass on Sunday, January 31st at the 8 a.m. liturgy. I am asking all the student’s that attend to be in uniform. If students are in uniform on Sunday, they will have an “out of uniform” day at a later date. A pancake breakfast will follow in our new gym and the book fair will be open in the library. Our traditional grandparent’s day is Monday, February 1st. Please make plans to join us for these events. More events will follow during the week. Please refer to your flyers from school.
As always, thank you for giving us the opportunity to work with your wonderful children.
