Dear Parents,

 

Our Knights of Columbus/Sacred Heart School Golf Tournament was a huge success. It was great to see so many from our parish community come together for a day of golf and dinner. Thank you to the planning committee who not only had a vision of how this could bring the different groups of our parish together, but also spent countless hours planning, organizing and working the day of the tournament; all of the time you dedicated to this event is greatly appreciated.

Today members of our track and field team are at Swangard Stadium taking part in the CISVA Track and Field Championships. Good luck to all of our student athletes, and thank you to our staff and parents who support them.

 

God Bless,

 

Kelly Kozack

Principal

Thank You Mass and Tea:  Gracias, Obrigado, Danke Schoen, Merci Beaucoup.  All parents are cordially invited to attend our annual Thank You Mass and Tea.  The Mass will take place on Thursday, May 31st at 1:15pm. This will be followed by light refreshments in the gym.  Let us show you our gratitude for the many hours of hard work that you all have put in to make our school so special.

 

Social Media and Mental Health Parent Workshop:  As children get more connected through social media, how do we stay connected with our children? How do we help our children safely navigate the digital world without being swallowed by a hurricane of problems? The first way to hack into cyberspace is to explore the different platforms. We will also discuss the various pitfalls of the Internet such as privacy concerns, avoiding cyber bullying, how to spot scams and the reality of information permanence. By keeping the lines of communication open, parents can help prepare children for safe Internet use. Signal Hill will be presenting this workshop on social media. Childcare will be provided.

When: Wednesday, May 30th

Time: 7– 8:30pm
