At Sacred Heart Catholic School, our Religion program is intended to invite the children to a faith response that is living, conscious and active. Religion is integrated throughout the day to include collaboration with parents creating a firm foundation of the Catholic faith and Catholic social teachings. Through prayer, study, scripture, sacraments, liturgical experiences and service to others, the children will have opportunities to connect their faith to daily living.
Our goal is for all students at Sacred Heart Catholic School to grow in their understanding of:
- The teachings and lived traditions of the Catholic faith and the celebration of the sacraments, especially the Eucharist and Reconciliation
- Bible stories as it relates to everyday life
- The development of morals based on our Catholic faith
- The value of praying personally, communally and liturgically
- Living out the Catholic social teachings
Our 2nd graders celebrated All Saints’ Day
Each 2nd grader learned about a saint and shared his/her saint with the students at a school mass.
Bully Policy at Sacred Heart
Created in the image and likeness of God, each child shares a fundamental human dignity. A Catholic school provides an environment dedicated to protecting and fostering the development of that dignity. The school helps children learn how to exercise their God-given freedom responsibly, with the goal that good choices become good habits, that is, virtues. The highest virtue is charity, which God both requires and makes possible. “Here is my commandment,” says Jesus, “that you love one another as I have loved you.” As bearers of the divine image, members of the school community deserve care and respect from all. Bullying and Retaliation are not to be tolerated.
This policy serves as a guide for when expectations of respect are not met, and for when reconciliation and restitution are needed.
