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.”

Archery Club – practice begins in a couple of weeks!
We teach the skills of archery in a fun, safe environment. It is proven that these skills will help your children in many phases of life. You do not need to be a hunter or want to hunt to be involved. Girls do quite well with this and probably half of the kids that participate are girls. Archery is a life sport that has many opportunities that extend way past hunting so please consider this opportunity.
- We typically shoot Sunday afternoons and break down the groups by age. All Sacred Heart students 4th grade and older are eligible for the archery club.
- We shoot conventional target and this year we will use 3D animal targets as well.
- We do compete in tournament as well if you wish to do so. We will host a tournament in February.
- We would love to get more parents to help coach as well. Please ask myself or one our current coach’s about it. It is quite rewarding.
- Register using the form HERE.
