Olympian helps kick off the first day of school at SHS

For Sacred Heart students the first day of school culminated in a visit from an Olympian. Laurie Hernandez joined Sacred Heart students, sharing her faith, her journey, and goals. "Everyday leads up to what you want to do." said Hernandez. "Your future doesn’t start in 10 years, it doesn’t start in a few months. It starts right now and you get to decide where you go from here."

The research set out to look at whether digit ratio could possibly be linked to muscular strength, which in turn could be linked to sports performance. The findings were published in the Journal of Early Human Development and was published online.



Student's Science Project picked up for Publication


Over the summer the Journal of Early Human Development published results from a research project carried out by Sacred Heart student Jordan Tomkinson and his dad, Dr. Grant Tomkinson. The publication of the research findings, initially presented at the school's science fair, yielded numerous publications in other journals and in the media.
