Today, it is with sad hearts we say goodbye to our principal, Mrs. Tina Neese. We know God has many blessings in store for her and is leading her down a new path. Although we will greatly miss her, we know the same God that created this wonderful opportunity for Mrs. Neese will also lead and guide us during this transition period.
Mrs. Neese, we are so thankful for your time with us. We appreciate your leadership, knowledge, guidance, wisdom, and compassion. We know our next principal will have some big shoes to fill.
We miss you already and wish you the best. We love you.
Sacred Heart School will be hosting the annual Christmas Gift Open House the Sunday after Thanksgiving, November 27. There will be many different vendors to showcase their goods and products and there is NO entrance fee. This is an excellent place to do most, if not all, of your Christmas shopping. We look forward to seeing you!
It’s that time again – Poinsettia Time! SHS is selling poinsettias just in time for the holidays. The poinsettias are absolutely beautiful and provide holiday cheer where ever they are placed, whether it is a business or a home. The orders and money are due on Friday, December 2. They will be delivered to the school on the following Monday, December 5.
Today’s Penny Drive was very exciting! The students walked back and forth between the buckets to drop in their money hoping it would put their class in a good place for Friday. Strategies are definitely in play. Today’s winner is the Kindergarten class! As you can imagine, they were definitely excited about their win today. Who will win tomorrow???
Our Penny Drive started with a blast this morning! Some buckets had very little while others were full! The students were already talking strategy this morning to give their class the upper hand so they will win the week’s competition. Today’s winner was the 5th & 6th grade classroom. Will they be able to hold onto the lead?
This fundraiser is sponsored by the PTO and we have the best! In the past, the PTO has been able to purchase desks and chairs for the 1st – 4th grade classrooms, reading books for the kindergarten – 4th grade classrooms, and white boards for all classrooms.
Remember, pennies count toward a classroom; nickels, dimes, quarters, and all bills count against a classroom.
Mrs. Simbeck was suprised when she walked into the gym and saw all of the students wanting to wish her good luck and let her know she will be missed when she and her family move to Puerto Rico. They made her cards and gave her beautifully, handmade flowers. ¡Te Extrañaremos, Senora Simbeck! (We will miss you, Mrs. Simbeck!)
Yesterday, our athletes and their families met at St. Joe’s City Park for the Sports’ Picnic. We had a cookout with hotdogs, hamburgers, watermelon and many more sweets! It wasn’t quite warm enough for the creek, but a few brave ones (or maybe not so smart ones!) jumped in. Coaches Susan and Jeff Methvin gave out the awards and acknowledged how well each one did. We had several students who were consistently in the top 20 at the Cross Country meets. And, our soccer team was undefeated with only 3 goals scored against them! Great Job, Athletes!!! We want to especially congratulate our 8th graders as they led us in a great year and we will miss them. They are Karissa Coggin, Mary White, John-Paul Littrell, Jude Thomas, Kane West, and Sam Methvin. Not pictured-Grace Forsythe.
It will be here before you know it – our annual 4th of July Picnic! Our students are helping to prepare these beautiful windows for our auction with the guidance of Katy Thomas. These are favorites and very “hot items” at our picnic!
Our 8th graders had their play tonight. If you didn’t come, you missed out! Who would’ve thought the sheriff was the murderer?!? Great Job, 8th Graders!!!
