Sacred Heart School News

Wednesday PIE 8.14.19

  • The month of August is traditionally dedicated to the Immaculate Heart of Mary. The physical heart of Mary is venerated (and not adored as the Sacred Heart of Jesus is) because it is united to her person and is the seat of her love (especially for her divine Son), virtue, and inner life. ~  Take sometime this month to pray the nine-day prayer for any special intentions in your life. 

                Novena to the Immaculate Heart of Mary O Most Blessed Mother, heart of love, heart of

                mercy, ever listening, caring, consoling, hear our prayer. As your children, we implore your  

                intercession with Jesus your Son. Receive with understanding and compassion the petitions 

                we place before you today, especially … (special intention).

  • DATE CHANGE: September 13th is a full day and September 20th is a noon dismissal. Please see attached the new updated school calendar.

  • Are you LOOKING TO HELP WITH CLASS TRIPS OR CLASSROOM FUN?  Great! We are so thankful that parents and grandparents want to help on field trips and during school functions, but in order to participate in these activities, volunteers need to complete clearances. Why not get a head start on it now for next year?  Most of the items can be done online, with the exception of Protecting God’s Children and the fingerprinting.   The list of items needed for clearances are necessary in order to participate at school functions with the students. Protecting God’s Children workshop is offered twice in July and twice in August. Dates and times can be found on the Allentown Diocesan website under calendar. Simply click on the date you can attend and it will take you to registration.  Fingerprinting, Criminal Background, and Child Abuse background are free for volunteers. Simply stop in at the Parish Office and Denise Robinson can give the codes for your convenience. Attached is the clearance checklist. Thank you for your time and assistance in keeping our environment safety compliant!
