There are two ways to get the photos to us:

  • Upload digital pictures to our photo submission site.  You will be asked to include the student’s name and grade-level before completing the submission.
  • Place photos in an envelope, clearly label it with your child’s name and send it to the attention of Ms. Drummond in the office.  Photos will be scanned and returned to your students to take home.
  • Deadline to submit pictures is December 15th.

Remember, you can also use the photo submission site to send us other photos for possible inclusion in the yearbook (dances, field trips, sporting events, etc…)

Letter from the Principal

Fall Greetings,snow

Thank you for everyone who enthusiastically supported our student-led conferences.  As research supports, these conferences help to enable your young person to be accountable for their learning.   We all learn differently through different avenues and this process helps young people understand how they learn.  It also allows us to learn how to best serve you and your young person so they are successful. Thank you for your continued support.

The new lights were installed in the gym October 9th.  Please stop by and admire the efficient lighting in our gym.

We are coming to a close in the month of October.

  • 11:00 AM – Thanksgiving Feast

As a reminder, the second annual Thanksgiving Feast will be Friday, November 17 at 11 a.m.  This is our time to serve you, our young people and families.  We have a Thanksgiving dinner of turkey, mashed potatoes, gravy, corn, bread and cookie, along with a drink. I work with Publix to cater this event, as we did last year. Thankfully, our room moms make this a reality as they serve our students.  Our students eat with their buddies and we celebrate that we are a family, united together.

Food Pantry Missionkimbell

We are helping to stock the food pantry at the parish for Thanksgiving.  All grades have been asked to bring in specialty items to make Thanksgiving special for families in need. Thank you for your support.

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!
