After much prayer and discernment, Susie and Alan Rumpel have concluded, after 34 years at the school as a supportive parent and beloved staff member, that it is time for her to retire at the end of this June. They are extremely grateful for her time of employment in this wonderful and loving school family. I am grateful for the 25 years I have spent with her as a parent of my students, as school secretary looking after my children when they were students at the school, and lastly for the last five years we have spent in the office as colleagues. We are extremely thankful for all that she has done for all of us and will miss her!

Parish Education Committee – Call Out for New Members! The Parish Education Committee (PEC) is seeking new members to join the committee for the next school year.
The PEC is comprised of our pastor, our principal and parents, who, together, provide direction for Sacred Heart School. We meet once a month to discuss school matters and work with various sub-committees that support the school (Fundraising, Marketing, Communications, Finance, Parent Participation and other initiatives and activities).
Serving on the PEC is a great opportunity to learn more about Sacred Heart and its programs while using your experience and expertise to ensure a successful future for the school. Your participation in the PEC fulfills your family’s annual Parent Participation hours requirement. We encourage parents who are Catholics in good standing and members of the parish to consider joining the PEC.
