From the Advancement Office

Parents of Students (5th to 8th Graders):


As a part of Commitment Sunday, we are asking for help at all the masses (Nov. 11-12) to distribute and collect Commitment Cards. We would like four students in grades 5th through 8th to assist at each mass with this process.  The children should go to the back of the church at the beginning of the homily. Msgr. Mike will communicate that “each household should have received a Commitment Card this past week. If you do not have the Commitment Card with you, please hold up your hand and a card will be handed to you.”   The student volunteers will hand out the cards to those who need one and after five minutes or so, the students will pick up the cards. Hospitality volunteers will help with instructions. Please sign up at:

Mishaps, pinkeye, inciting World War III -- these are only a few of the many things that can go wrong during the production of a play. Plan to attend Sacred Heart's fall comedy performance full of the horrors and hardships that befall those who feel the call of the stage. In a series of hilarious examples, this play proves that drama can be a very dangerous thing and it must be avoided at all costs. 


Fall Drama At SHS


Save the date and plan to attend Sacred Heart's fall comedy, 30 REASONS NOT TO BE IN A PLAY. The production is put on by students in grades 7-12th.


30 Reasons not to be in a Play

November 17th & 18th at 7:00 p.m.

November 19th at 2:00 p.m.


Tickets will be available at the door.

Fall Book Fair at SHS   Additional Notes:

Sacred Heart School will be having its Fall Book Fair from Nov. 13-16 AND Nov. 20-21. That’s right, the book fair will be open for 2 ADDITIONAL DAYS! If you are going to see relatives over the Thanksgiving holidays, stop in and shop for gifts you can bring along to store for Christmas or to keep your children occupied while traveling “over the hills and through the woods” to Grandma’s house or anywhere else you’re going!

Book Fair times: 8:00 a.m.-4:30 p.m. Nov. 13, 15, 20-21 and 8 a.m.-8 p.m. on Nov. 14 & 16. Nov. 17 we will be open for Grandparents Day in the afternoon until 3 p.m. that day only!


If you can’t stop by in person, shop online! From Nov. 5 through Nov. 18, you can shop ONLINE HERE and your orders will come to the school for FREE SHIPPING! Ms. Dempsey is pretty good at keeping secrets, so if you wish to buy something for Christmas or a birthday without little eyes around, this is the answer for you!


We hope you can come and shop! 25% of the proceeds come back to Sacred Heart so Ms. Dempsey can purchase books for the students. Yay students!


Also, we are doing a “All for Books” collection for Red Lake Mission School. Donate $1 or any change you have and all monies collected will be used to by new books for the students at the school from the book fair! Plus Scholastic will match our donation to give books to needy children through such groups as Kids in Need Foundation, Reader to Reader Inc., and the National Center for Families Learning.
