Last week during Computer Science Education Week, Sacred Heart hosted their first Family Code Night! It was a fun-filled night where students and parents joined in teams to complete puzzles and challenges while learning the basics of Computer Programming. A special evening of learning and fun!
November 1, 2018, marked the 50th year that the Saints have been marching at Sacred Heart Parish School. Students dressed as 44 diverse Catholic Saints representing all walks of life led the parade from the schoolyard into the church before Mass. From archangels to popes, monarchs to villagers, soldiers, teachers, priests, and nuns, those students dressed up as saints took turns giving a short explanation of their life and call to sainthood. Golden crowns adorned the rest of the school’s children and faculty representing the “sainthood” to which all aspire. This stunning tradition is one of the highlights of the academic year.
Día De Los Muertos, in English, means Day of the Dead. It is a holiday that originated in Mexico, but is celebrated throughout Latin America. This essential tradition has become a big part of the Sacred Heart Community and has a big impact on our students and their families. This tradition helps us remember and celebrate the life of our deceased loved ones. We do this by creating an "Altar" (shrine) to the deceased that includes things such as possessions, photos, and objects of their liking. This tradition is celebrated every year at Sacred Heart, and plays a major role in our geographical region, and culture.
Stop by the main hallway in our school and take a look at our Dia De Los Muertos Altar.
