Winter Greetings,CSW

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.

Catholic Schools Week:  Plan to join us for the 8 a.m. Mass on January 31st followed by a pancake breakfast hosted by the Knights of Columbus.  We will also be hosting a Scholastic Book Fair which funds books for our library.  Thank you for supporting both events.
On Monday February 1st, we will host our annual Grandparent’s Day at Sacred Heart Cathedral School. Please invite your grandparents or special family friends to join us on this day.  The activities take place during the morning.
Thank you to everyone who is also participating in our annual Trivia Night.  This event sells out quickly so please reserve your tables early.
The gym is in process as they plan to lay the floor today and mark the floor with paint for volleyball and basketball on Sunday.  We are asked to stay off the floor for 72 hours after the paint has been placed.  I am confident everyone will agree this has been a progressive move forward toward providing a great facility for our young people.
