Students Honor Veterans

Posted by: on Feb 27, 2012 in EVENTS | No Comments

Our school’s Veterans Day Program was held the morning of November 11th with several in attendance.  The children did a marvelous job acknowledging our veterans who have sacrificed so much for our nation.  This was an important educational event for our students as well   As humans, much of the happiness in our lives comes from being grateful for what we have.  Every year at Veterans Day, the children get a lesson in gratitude for the many blessings that our Veterans have preserved for us.  For the sake of our children’s happiness, we as parents and teachers need to build this sense of gratitude in them, through knowledge and faith.  Remember prayers of gratitude each day at your family’s dinner table and by the bedside each night.

A busy day at the duck pond.

The Sacred Heart Area School Carnival was a fun time for boys, girls, young and old, with plenty of fun games and tasty food.  All of this was made possible by the parishioners, school families, school staff, and members of the community that donated so much of their time, talents, and treasures.  We want to especially want to recognize our carnival chair Ms. Heather Rinke (SHAS preschool teacher) and our carnival dinner chair Denise Brown (SHAS parent) for all their efforts in the organizing the event.  The dinner, carnival, and raffle tickets rose over $24,000 for the continued operation of the school.  Nearly $17,000 of that was from raffle ticket sales made by our families.

This was one of the most exciting days of Catholic Schools Week for the students.  Everyone was very comfortable in their pajamas.  All of us enjoyed taking some time this morning to drop everything and read.  We also enjoyed dancing the last 20 minutes of the school day with our religious education students from Staples Elementary.  Later that evening we met up again for our annual community dance.  It was a great time for all.  Many thanks to those who volunteered to help make this a success!dinner and auctiondinner and auctionThe kindergartners get cozy with Ms. Wiese and a good book.
