As members of the Most Sacred Heart School Community we believe that children learn best in an atmosphere of trust, respect, openness and cooperation. There is one classroom of each grade level in our school. This allows for more personal contact with the children as well as their families. Our Community is a strong, close family. Another strength of our school is the involvement of our parents. There are many opportunities to become involved in school and parish activities. There is a strong commitment to our school from all segments of the parish.
Our faith is at the core of all that we do within our Catholic School Community. As followers of Jesus Christ, the parents, students and staff of Most Sacred Heart join with the parish to form a community of believers and learners, striving for the highest levels of spiritual, personal, and intellectual accomplishments. Prayer is an integral part of the classroom, as we begin each day in praying for each other and for special intentions over the intercom. Students participate in traditional Catholic activities such as Stations of the Cross, May Crowning, and Seasonal Prayer Services throughout the school year. Students receive Religion instruction every day, attend Mass weekly, and prepare for their first sacraments.
Students participate in several service projects throughout each school year that are relevant to the Gospel message. During October school families are invited to bring in “toiletries” for our parish St. Vincent de Paul Society, and during November school families donate canned foods for our local Eureka Food Pantry. In December school families are invited to bring toys for the Parish Rural Workers in Old Mines, Missouri. During Catholic Schools Week in January we have collected for both Birthright and for the Humane Society of Missouri. Our 8th graders annually host the Mardi Gras Carnival and all proceeds are donated to our parish St. Vincent de Paul Society. In the spring school families support Cardinal Glennon Hospital by donated cash during Homers for Health. When students are able to participate in field trips, they volunteer time at the Agape House in Pacific, Missouri. These service projects all help our students learn that as Catholics we are called to service and we are called to practice social justice. MSHS is committed to both service and social justice.
