On behalf of the staff of Sacred Heart School, I welcome all of you back to school. We thank you for your generosity at Christmas time, that was expressed in the way of cards and gifts to staff and donations to our "Giving Tree”. I trust you and your family had a blessed and peaceful Christmas break. It is wonderful to be back at school working with your children and sharing in the excitement, energy and joy that they bring with them each and every day.
A number of extracurricular activities have started up at school this week; we are grateful for the support of these activities through coaching, refereeing and driving. Although we are just returning to school we are already planning for next year. If you have a child entering kindergarten in the fall, I thank you for completing the sibling survey. If you have not had a chance to respond, please do so as soon possible. We are accepting applications from new families and we want to make sure we save a spot for your child entering kindergarten.
Prayer Request: Two great uncles of Jake Fairn (Class 5) and great-great uncles of Bowen Clarke (Class K), Wilbur Clarke and Len Clarke, have recently passed away. Please keep all of them and their families in your prayers. Thank you.
Pastoral Reference Letters/Forms: Registration packages for a number of our Catholic high schools are due soon. A pastor’s reference is a requirement for registration. Father Francis would like to meet with at least one parent from each family that requires a reference. If you are in need of a Pastor’s Reference Letter please contact the Parish Office and make an appointment to see Father Francis.
Hot Lunch Orders: Our third session of hot lunch is now open for ordering. January through March. Please note that ordering will close on January 23rd. We are unable to accept any late orders. Thank you. Sandra, Hot Lunch Coordinator.
Parent's Night Out- January 19: With the kids back in school, I’m sure you are in need of some
well deserved downtime. Well, we have just the answer! Drop off your kids for a night of supervised fun, activities and a movie while you get to enjoy a meal that doesn’t involve cutting up someone’s food for them. For details, please see the attachment below.
Knights of Columbus: The Knights are holding a First Degree installation of new members on Monday, January 21st. Fathers from the school are encouraged to attend this meeting. Mr. Mitch Drew, Deputy Grand Knight of our local council, and former parent of our school, has prepared a video providing details. Please click here for more information.
