A mexican tradition celebrated November 2nd has been a part of the culture of Sacred Heart Parish School for many years. This year, during EdTech, students learned about the various components of an "Ofrenda" (Altar) and created various projects to add to our very own Altar. Teachers and Staff brought pictures of their ancestors to add to our Altar. A Middle School students created Digital Mini ofrendas. A collaborative project that brings this wonderful tradition to life year after year at SHPS was wrapped by the sale that 6th grade put together. They sold Pan de Muerto to raise funds for San Diego Coastkepper. They raised a total of $366! Thank you all for your support!
On November 1st we celebrated All Saint's Day. On this day the Catholic Church celebrates and honors those saints who have reached heaven. Sacred Heart Parish School students look forward to this tradition year after year. Students dress up and learn facts about their saint to share with the school community during our mass celebration.
This week during Mass, Fr. Mike reminded the children that we are all called to be saints.
Thank you to the 8th grade class for supporting Haiti.
This year the 6th graders have the pleasure of being buddies with the 2nd graders. Throughout the year they will be helping to prepare the 2nd graders for their First Holy Communion and First Reconciliation. Although the 6th graders will be teaching the 2nd graders a lot this year, last week the 2nd graders taught the 6th graders how to draw a sloth. After doing a directed drawing with Ms. Soper the day before, the 2nd graders did a wonderful job teaching their buddies what they learned.
