Ride home with parents after Athletic events

The “Eagle Way”

Formed through Benedictine Values, the “Eagle Way” represents the culture that we want to encompass at Sacred Heart.  This includes activities and events held outside of school hours.  When students, staff, parents, and community members soar the “Eagle Way” they are emulating the Benedictine heritage formed through work and prayer.  The “Eagle Way” might be a player helping up another team’s player.  It might be a coach thanking the officials for their hard work.  It could be fans staying after to help pick up trash in the stands or celebrating the achievement of the opposing team.  Please help us recognize this behavior using the link below.  Let’s all do our part to Soar the “Eagle Way.”
