A Marathon to Remember

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

Thank you Sacred Heart Area School families for all your hard work!  This year’s October 15th Marathon was one of our best yet raising nearly $10,000, far surpassing our school’s $9,000 goal.  An exact total will be posted at a later date.  Several parents participated in the walk-a-thon event, which took grades 1st -6th students up the new Airport Road walking/biking trail to Prairie Avenue, a rest at the care center’s Dinosaur Park, and a return trip down 4th Street (total distance: 3miles).  Preschool and Kindergarten made the round trip to Burlington Northern Park.  Cookies and drink were available on the trail, and apple slices with caramel when they returned to school.  Students, staff, and parents wore ribbons in memory of one of our former 2nd grade students, Joel Roberts, who was killed in an automobile accident October 2, 1993 the day of the SHAS Marathon.   The youngest of the Roberts’s children will be graduating this spring.  Being part of our school and church is like being part of a family.  We are certainly off to a great school year.  Parents and parishioners have “stepped up to the plate” more than ever.  This is what will allow us to continue our mission of forming young minds and souls, building the Kingdom of God, and be a great school!  Have a great week!

Help SHAS spread the word!
