Below are programs being offered for students in both elementary and high school over the course of the summer. These programs are not partnered or sponsored by SHS, but offer an opportunity for students and families.
Each year Sacred Heart students in 7-12th grade participate in our week-long Beyond-the-Classroom Interim Program. This cooperative experiential learning program with community leaders, current teachers and field experts has enabled Sacred Heart School to have an innovative and evolving curriculum. The opportunities during the week has increased learning possibilities for our students — moving them beyond the classroom. A special thank you to teachers who offered classes and to area businesses who hosted a student in one of our off campus job shadowing opportunities!
See our students in action! View a photo gallery from 2017 Beyond the Classroom week.

The Sacred Heart Science Club, headed by science instructor Sarina Bauer, has had an exciting first year, taking 4th in the recent Science Olympiad, competing in the regional fair and now sending some of our students to the State competition.
The Science Club had a great day at the Regional Science Fair at the University of Minnesota Crookston. Lily Grossbauer and Kannon Knutsvig received a 1st Place Blue award and are going to State competitions. Knutsvig also received the Sustainability Solutions Award, Broadcom Master’s Award, and the Air Force Top 4 middle school project award.
Receiving Red Awards (2nd place), were Lily Zimprich, Imari Crayton, Daisy Hu and Harrison Punton. Gabby Zimprich also received a Red Award and is a first alternate to State.

he Outstanding Achievement in Metrological Science award. Receiving Green Awards (3rd Place) were: Kate Chen and Yuki Guan.
The Sacred Heart Seniors took a day trip to Red Lake on Wednesday Feb. 8th as a part of their Senior Legacy Service Project. Earlier this fall they had an overnight trip to Red Lake in which they spent 2 full days in the school. Fr. Jerry Rogers the pastor at St. Mary’s school wants this project to be “relational.” Fr. Jerry stated, “The best thing these kids could have is someone of high school age to look up to and realize that education is important and finishing high school is attainable. Most of these students do not have older siblings or parents to look up to who have graduated high school.”
The poverty on the Red Lake reservation is daunting… Fr. Jerry goes on to say, “I hope that through building positive mentorship relationships both the Red Lake and Sacred Heart seniors will learn something. They can learn from each other.” The Red Lake 4th-6th graders will be coming for a field trip visit to Sacred Heart in March. The seniors are working to design a fun and faith filled visit for the Red Lake students. Fr. Jerry stated, “We want to help build some positive memories for these kids.”
Congrats to the Science Club who took 4th place at the Science Olympiad in Moorhead. They competed against 14 teams in 14 different science events. Each event was comprised of two team members. Some events were labs that students had to complete, some had tests they had to take, and some required the students to build things before they arrived at the event and had to compete against other teams. Categories included Anatomy & Physiology, Write It, Do it, Remote Sensing, Experimental Design, Chemistry Lab, Ecology, Optics, Wind Power, Astronomy, Invasive Species, Towers, and Robot Arms.
This weekend the science club students are competing in the regional science fair. This is an individual event, so each member conducted their own experiment and will be presenting them to judges. The event is also open for public viewing. It is in Crookston at UMC on Saturday from 9:30-12pm.
For the Science Olympiad, the Club is still waiting to hear about officially going to State. Having already competed and tied, they are now waiting for another region’s competition to see if there will be any more ties before they will know if they will go to State.
