September is childhood cancer month

September is childhood cancer month and we recognize that by wearing yellow. 122299307-2

However, the color for childhood leukemia is orange.  In support of Madeleine Ritz, we are asking students to wear an orange shirt on Thursday with a $2 donation for the leukemia association.

If you do not have an orange shirt, please wear yellow in recognition of childhood cancer.

  • Students in grades 3-8 may wear jeans, not shorts, with their t-shirts.
  • Boys may wear shorts only if they wear their uniform shorts.
  • Students in pre-k-2nd grade may wear shorts with their t-shirts.
  • All students are required to wear uniform shoes.

Angel Tree Mission

Angel-Christmas-TreeAs we immerse our hearts and thoughts into this Advent Season, we are reminded of the many blessings we have been given.  The Student Council’s Advent project is to identify several families on the Angel Tree at Sacred Heart Cathedral Parish.

We have identified three families who include 12 children.  It is our goal this Advent season to collect money so we can provide presents for these children.

We are asking for monetary donations, which we will be collecting until Friday, December 9, 2016.

Once the money is collected, student council members, teachers, and representatives will shop for the presents requested.  We will then wrap the presents and bring them to church at our liturgy on Friday, December 16.

We thank you, in advance, for your participation in this project.

Sincerely,

Student Council Officers and Representatives
