School Notes:

Sacred Heart School is a Catholic, parish elementary school committed to equipping students to meet the academic, social and technological demands of the 21stCentury.  We recognize and develop the innate God given talents of each individual student. 

In order to meet those demands we prepare SHS students with the resources necessary to develop the skills required to succeed and thrive in an ever-changing global and technological world. 

SHS creates a faith filled learning environment, where each student learns their role and the responsibilities of being a “good steward to the world and its citizens,” through service, good works and prayer.  The SHS faculty and staff join with parents to assist students in developing the skills to become independent and self-sufficient adults who will succeed and contribute responsibly in a fast paced, technological and global community.
