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 Eucharistic adoration, Stations of the Cross, May Crowning, and Scriptural Rosary 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. Each month, school families are invited to bring in food for the Gift of Mary Center. With this food, students in grades 5th through 8th prepare, serve and clean up lunch at the Gift of Mary Center. In preparation for First Holy Communion, 2nd grade students prepare trail mix that is donated to the Gift of Mary Center. Confirmation preparation for 8th grade students includes projects related to Church History, Social Justice, Liturgy and Parish Life. During the Christmas season, students donate items for the Rural Parish Workers toy drive. Students respond generously to the annual Thanksgiving canned food drive. The St. Vincent de Paul Society receives all money raised at the school Mardi Gras Carnival. Students also raise money and donate a variety of items for other charities with money raised on Dress-Down Days and other special collections.
