SHS to participate in JDRF Kids for a Cure

SHS to participate in JDRF Kids for a Cure

BlankHeading-2011

May 14th-18th Sacred Heart School will be participating in JDRF Kids for a Cure – Kids Helping Kids Cure Type 1 Diabetes. Paper shoes and a table will be set up outside the elementary offices for students who would like to contribute to finding a cure for juvenile diabetes.

First of all, from our family, we wish to thank the Sacred Heart staff, especially Miss Lang, Mrs. Hoefs and Mrs. Swiger for their support and flexibility in accommodating Sophia in being a regular kid.

Sophia Keller is currently a 2nd grader at Sacred Heart.  She was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes in July 2017.  Type 1 Diabetes occurs when the pancreas does not produce insulin, which allows the sugar in the blood stream to move into cells to be stored and used as energy.  Sophia must monitor her blood sugar level (BSL) before and after meals and during times of activity and stress, about 9 times a day.  At meal times, the carbohydrates (sugars and starches) are accounted for by reading labels and weighing portions.  The amount of insulin administered varies based on the BSL and the amount of carbohydrates.  In addition, she receives a long acting insulin before bed to help regulate her BSL between meals.  The long-term effects of having a high BSL include kidney failure, heart disease, and nerve & eye damage.  The consequence of a low BSL is low energy and fainting.

The cause of Type 1 Diabetes is unknown, however some believe it is an autoimmune disorder.  The only treatment is to do the job of the pancreas.  Currently, Sophia receives insulin by injection and monitors her BSL with test strips.  Other technology available is a continuous monitor that reads the BSL through the skin, which reduces the test strip checks to 2 times per day for calibration and an insulin pump to eliminate the need for meal and nighttime injections.

For Sophia, discovering how having low or high BSL affects her and being able to communicate that with her family has been a fast learning curve.  Now, almost a year later, she can tell when she’s low and lets us know.   Her classmates even help by reminding her when it is time to test her BSL if she’s too absorbed in her schoolwork, o.k. recess.  Her siblings also look out for her, as any disease like this affects not just the person, but those who support and surround them too.

Here are several notes on Type 1 Diabetes:

Also known as juvenile or insulin-dependent diabetes

Autoimmune disease

1.25 million Americans have this type of Diabetes

40,000 are diagnosed each year

At the end of the day, the technology is out there to accommodate Type 1 Diabetes and there are wonderful people who assist in keeping the world “normal” for the kids, but we don’t know the cause and there is no prevention.  We must continue the research and continue to develop our knowledge of Diabetes for treatment and then prevention.

Students Recognized as part of 100+ Hours of Service Challenge

billboard_Newman_group

Beginning in the fall of 2016, in conjunction with the school’s philosophy to foster students to become “citizens who are responsive to the needs of society,” Sacred Heart School set the expectation that each student in grade nine through twelve, will accumulate 100 hours of Christian Service prior to graduation. The expectation is that each student, starting in grade nine, will accumulate their service hours with a goal to perform 25 hours of service at school or in the community each year. Our hope is that each student will set as his/her goal a total of 100 hours prior to graduation. Students will not be required to achieve the hours to graduate, however, the students who accomplish the 100 hours will receive recognition in the graduation program and the honor to wear a white honor cord with their graduation apparel. The following student have met the 25 hours per year goal set for the grade they are currently enrolled.

WelCore Flu Shot Clinic at SHS

Sacred Heart will be hosting the WelCore Health and Influenza Vaccine Clinic on Tuesday, October 10th (Elementary students 1-2pm, High School students 2-3pm, and open to the public from 3-4pm). We ask that if you wish to have your child that is younger than third grade vaccinated please make arrangements to accompany them to the clinic or come at the 3-4pm timeslot which is open to the public. We had some very scared students in the younger grades last year. We would like to prevent any unnecessary stress for our students.

PARENTS MUST SEND THIS FORM WITH THEIR CHILD!
