Audubon Center Fieldtrip

dsc08150dsc07939dsc07971The SHAS 4th, 5th, and 6th graders, along with 8 parents and 2 teachers, attended the Audubon Center of the Northwoods, near Sandstone, Minnesota, November 14-16, for a fascinating 3 day, 2 night ecological adventure.  As part of this educational experience students participated in forest nature quests, supervised up close encounters with forest animals, predator/prey role playing games, a high ropes confidence building course, KP (kitchen patrol) duty, and much more.  This field trip is a highlight for our intermediate students and has been a tradition for the past 14 years, made on alternating years with the traditional State Capitol/Science Museum field trip.  “Two thumbs up” for the Audubon Center!

A Busy Week for Young Citizens

Posted by: on Nov 16, 2012 in SHAS NEWS | No Comments

Sacred Heart Area School students celebrated Election Day and Veterans Day by voting for president and honoring our heroes.  Mrs. Trout’s 4th/5th Class facilitated voting booths and ballots for all students, Tuesday morning, November 6th.  SHAS students are taught the importance to, and duty as a citizen, to vote.  Unlike the national results, Romney had a landslide victory.  We pray that our president and our country grow stronger economically and work toward peace and protecting the dignity and life of all people in these next 4 years.   The children of SHAS celebrated Veterans Day November 9th, with a program.  All grade levels participated with song, speaking, or acting.  Fabulous job boys and girls!  There is such an important lesson in gratitude learned by our children from celebrating this day.  Learning to be grateful is learning to be happy with what you have.  We want to thank guest speaker, Jack Giza, for sharing his very special story of Veterans Day, life experiences, and his father’s story of WWI.  It was much enjoyed by all.  The children also enjoyed the fabulous air show with WWII fighter planes later that afternoon, right from our school grounds.  Thank you veterans for all you have done for us!

Halloween Parties

The students, staff, and a few parents of Sacred Heart Area School enjoyed a Halloween costume parade Wednesday afternoon.  Treats were exchanged and games were played.  Miss Rinke’s Tuesday /  Thursday preschool class enjoyed a party Tuesday afternoon as well.  Although the adrenaline was very high, the children were very respectful of each other and stayed safe.  Thank you to all our families for choosing such good-natured, good-humored, and tasteful costumes.

Miss Rinke’s and Mrs. Kramer’s Tuesday/Thursday preschool classes dress up for their costume party.  The adults had just as much fun.  Miss Rinke is the Hot Dog (center), Mrs. Hanson is the mustard (left), and Mrs. Kramer is the Ketchup (right).
