The first performance of our Christmas play, Meet Me at the Manger, is officially in the books. Great job everyone!! A school play is a team effort: the staff working on class songs, both the singing and choreography; staff working on lines with the grade seven actors; parents helping with songs and lines at home in the evening, and helping to put together costumes; our play director Mr. Jones, who pulls it all together; and most importantly the children who have worked so hard over the past month to give our families a great Christmas gift.
Thank you to everyone who has contributed in many ways to our Christmas outreach initiatives. Your generosity and support is appreciated.
Please note that there will be an early dismissal this Friday at 12:30pm and will re-open on Monday, January 8th.
On behalf of the Sacred Heart School community I would like to wish all of you a blessed and safe Christmas.
