Sacred Heart School News

Wednesday PIE 2.15.17

February is the month dedicated to the Holy Family. February gives us a space of time between the Christmas celebrations and the increased focus on Jesus’s public life and ministry, which occurs in Lent. It is a transition from the feast of Christmas to the fasting of Lent. Therefore, traditionally February has become a time to recall the Holy Family; within the Holy Family is where Jesus spent the time between his birth and embarking on his public journey. We will be offering our February prayer up for the families of our fifth graders. We would like our fifth graders to bring in pictures of their family members so we can display them on our bulletin board.

Pope Francis recited this Prayer to the Holy Family

Jesus, Mary and Joseph, in you we contemplate the splendor of true love,
to you we turn with trust. Holy Family of Nazareth, grant that our families
too may be places of communion and prayer, authentic schools of the
Gospel and small domestic Churches. Holy Family of Nazareth, may
families never again experience violence, rejection and division: may all
who have been hurt and scandalized find ready comfort and healing. Holy
Family of Nazareth, make us once more mindful of the sacredness and
inviolability of the family, and its beauty in God’s plan. Jesus, Mary and Joseph,
graciously hear our prayer.

In addition to the regular gift cards we keep on the office (Aharts, Giant, Redners, Weiss, Wegmans) we also have Amazon, Dunkin Donuts, Barnes and Noble, Target, Sephora and Game Stop cards on hand.

Attention K-4 Parents: Permission slips and money for our DeSales Peter Pan field trip were due today. If you have not returned them, please do so as soon as possible. We need to send in the final payment for the tickets.

Sacred Heart Day at the Lehigh Valley Steelhawks is on Sunday, March 19 at 4 PM. Not only is this a fun event for our SHS family but it is also a fundraiser for our school. Tickets cost $15 each and $4 of that will be given back to SHS. This event is back by popular demand – we had an awesome time last year! Please order your tickets no later than February 28.

Sacred Heart CYO Track & Field Signups have opened. Please see the attached forms for more information.

CYO will be selling Palm Crosses that will be distributed the weekend of Palm Sunday. The Plain Cross costs $12.00/each. The Two Lilies and Bow Cross costs $15.00.

Box Top Shop: February 22 -23, 2017…This is our last push for box tops. Children will be able to get items at the Box Top Shop using Box Top Dollars. Each Box Top Dollar consists of 10 Box Tops. Most items at the Shop will be worth one Box Top Dollar. The shop will be open in the Scout Room during lunch break on Wednesday and Thursday, February 22 and 23. A paper copy of the Box Top Chart has been sent home in pie folders. There is also an attachment of the chart attached. Box tops should be glued or taped (one per box) on the chart. Please do not send in expired Box Tops, as we cannot submit them.

Congratulations to second grade. They collected the most box tops this year; winners were determined according to the percentage of tops collected divided by the number of students in each class. Second graders have earned a pizza party which will be held sometime in March.
