LorettoTel Sponsored Breakfast

This morning, Loretto Telecom sponsored a Reading Breakfast for our students. This breakfast was to celebrate all the reading they have done throughout the year, in particular during the month of March. We are so proud of our students!

“Zombie Island”

Yesterday in 5th grade science, the class was marooned on “Zombie Island”. They had to use the design process and work in groups to design and build a series circuit. Every group built a successful circuit and made the light bulb work in order to protect themselves from the zombies. They even installed switches in their circuits! Today, they will be given additional bulbs and batteries to see if they can successfully create parallel circuits.

All Schools Mass

Today, our 3rd-8th grade students went to the Catholic Pastoral Center for All Schools Mass in Nashville.  They had the privilege to hear Bishop J. Mark Spalding, the new Diocese of Nashville Bishop.  It will be the first time most of them have ever had the opportunity to celebrate mass with a bishop.

5th & 6th Grade Researchers

The 5th/6th grade have worked for the last week on researching either an extinct or endangered animal. They researched and took notes on a specific animal, then chose  a project to complete to share what they learned. Students wrote magazine articles, short stories, created infographics, and one made a video. Students shared their final products with the class today.

Fun during Catholic Schools’ Week

Yesterday, we hosted our Parent/Grandparent Lunch and, of course, had them to buy MORE books!  We LOVE books here at Sacred Heart School. And, of course, our students dressed in their favorite decade. We had some swinging 50’s & 60’s, some peace keeping 70’s, some neon jazzercising 80’s, & some current fashionistas.  We were styling & profiling – well, some of us!

Balloon Volleyball

Who knew a balloon could take such a beating!  Each of the classes competed against each other with balloons and the objective was to keep 2 of them up in the air without touching them twice in a row within a square.  First place went to the 8th grade and second place to 3rd grade.  As you can imagine, that was a surprising, but a pleasant turn of events for the 3rd graders!  Everyone had a great time.

St. Cecilia Motherhouse

As part of our Catholic Schools’ Week, Sister Teresa Joy & Sister Mary Martin visited and enlightened us about life in a convent. It was very interesting to see how much alike we were and to see how they are not “burdened by the cares of this world” because they have truly given everything to HIM.

Book Buddies

Today the younger students were read to by the older students or by someone very special – Mrs. Marks & Clifford the Big Red Dog! When the older ones were finished, they were then read to by the younger ones!  It was wonderful to see! The students loved it!
