Sacred Heart High School Educator Named CLAES Nobel Educator of Distinction

IMG_2797

Mrs. Debbie Heitman was recently selected as a CLAES Nobel Educator of Distinction by The National Society of High School Scholars (NSHSS). Educators of Distinction are outstanding role models and exemplary practitioners who have made a lasting difference in a student’s life by encouraging them to strive for excellence, not just in their academic pursuits, but in all their endeavors. Educators of Distinction are also eligible to compete for NSHSS’ Educator of the Year award.

Heitman was nominated by Sacred Heart senior Jiejun Chen. Chen is a member of NSHSS, and says that “Mrs. Heitman loves all her students. She voluntarily stays after school almost everyday to answer any questions from students. She has a lot of patience; she is never irritable when I ask the same question over and over again. She is a skillful teacher, who can make a confusing novel interesting and easy to understand.”

Debbie Heitman graduated from the University of North Dakota and started her teaching career at Sacred Heart in 2000. Mrs. Heitman’s dedication to Sacred Heart is cemented through her faith in Jesus Christ and the passion she has from watching her students grow in their faith. All students in grades 9-12 hold Mrs. Heitman in very high regard. Some of the staples in Mrs. Heitman’s curriculum include the Freshman (demonstration speeches), the Sophomores (authoring and illustrating children’s books), the Juniors (reciting the Gettysburg address or singing Native American poetry), and Seniors (holding mock interviews, producing Beowulf films, and standing before the school community in the Senior Debate). These projects give students opportunities to shine and invest in learning as they work collaboratively, creatively, and actively.

Thank you to Mrs. Heitman for your dedication to Sacred Heart and congratulations on a well earned distinction.

The Junior Varsity game will be at 10AM and the Varsity will tip off at 11:30AM. The Sacred Heart High School office and any boys basketball players/cheerleaders are selling tickets for $25.

However, Sacred Heart is responsible for selling a certain amount of Friday night tickets so hopefully that will be your first choice if it’s possible.

The vouchers are good for one of the following games;
Feb. 25th vs. Sacramento Kings
Mar. 5th vs. OKC Thunder
Mar. 9th vs. Washington Wizards
Mar. 26th vs. LA Clippers
Apr. 1st vs. Portland Trailblazers

Clay Nativity Make-Up Session Sign-Up

Clay Nativity Make-Up Session Sign-Up

The Sacred Heart Elementary School students participate in a special art activity creating a clay Nativity that continues from first grade through the sixth grade.  Our elementary art teacher, Mary Kulas, is going to have a “make-up” session for those students who have joined the Sacred Heart School family after first grade or who might need to replace pieces that were lost in an unfortunate event (or if your student was  absent on a “clay” day).  If your child would like to make-up any of the figures, please accompany your child to the elementary art room any time between 5:00 pm and 6:00 pm on Thursday, December 6, 2018. (Each piece takes about 20-30 minutes to complete.) Please return this FORM by December 4th, so that she can have an adequate amount of clay prepared for you.  Questions? Email: mkulas@sacredheartegf.net
