…if you designate your Target card, or your Best Buy Rewards Zone points to Sacred Heart we get a percentage for all of your purchases? It’s easy to do and it makes a little extra money for the school. One more easy way to give without spending any extra!

Happy Holidays from the 5th Grade

Posted by: on Dec 26, 2011 in GRADE 5 NEWS, SHAS NEWS | No Comments

The fifth graders have worked very hard the past month, learning their parts for the Christmas program. They did a great job!!
We did try to squeeze in a bit of academics also. They now know how to divide with 2 digit divisors. In social, we learned about the first English colonies in America.
Merry Christmas and Best wishes for a wonderful 2012!

Dear Parents…

Children, thank you for doing such a wonderful job on the Christmas Program, instilling the true meaning of Christmas in our hearts! Thank you Mrs. Trout and Ms. Rinke for great directing, and the rest of the staff in helping prepare the children for the performances!

All of us at Sacred Heart Area School are very excited about our new and improved website, which looks great and will be easier for us at the school to update. Our goal is to make it a useful tool for our current families, while promoting our school to future families in the surrounding communities. Thank you Heather Erholtz for bringing us to a more user friendly webhost and creating the new face of the website! This is a great example of how talents shared in our school family makes us all greater.

Please continue to pray for the Thompson family. Gordy is still not “out of the woods”, and will likely have a long road to recovery. For updates, go to Caringbridge.org. Keep safe this next week. May your Christmas Break and New Year be filled with many joys and blessings
with family and friends!

Thank you Mrs. Trout and Ms. Rinke for great directing, and the rest of the staff in helping prepare the children for the performances!  May your Christmas Break and New Year be filled with many joys and blessings with family and friends!

Merry Christmas from the 4th Grade

Posted by: on Dec 16, 2011 in GRADE 4 NEWS, SHAS NEWS | No Comments

The 4th graders have been very busy keeping up with their studies and preparing for the Christmas program.

In Religion we have been focusing on the season of Advent and preparing for Jesus’ birth. In math we are learning to multiply by two-digit numbers. We are wrapping up theme 2 in reading. Our stories all focused on the diversity, achievement, and spirit of the United States. We are continuing our study of
the regions of the United States. We also just started communicating via email with our pen pals in India! The students are very excited to hear if
they have received an email. Our focus in science is on ecosystems.

We are off to visit the residents at Lakewood Manor on Friday to share our Christmas excitement with them.

Wishing you all a Happy and Safe Holiday Season!! God Bless!!
Mrs. Odden and the 4th Grade
