How long did you attend SHCS?
I attended Sacred Heart, 1st grade through 8th grade, graduating in 1971.
What did you like best?
Overall, I liked the sense of community and belonging. Looking back, I believe Sacred Heart School (as well as my parents) encouraged me to work hard work, try new things and offer a helping hand to those in need.
What is your fondest memory about attending SHCS?
I have many fond memories of Sacred Heart. One that comes to mind centers around the Christmas Carol, a play the entire school participated in from building and painting props to acting out the story. Lots of fun!
Why would you recommend SHSC?
I would recommend Sacred Heart School to anyone who wishes to have their children learn and thrive in a loving, giving environment that promotes tolerance, diversity and respect for all views.
