Olympian Laurie Hernandez helps kick off the first day of school at SHS


For Sacred Heart students the first day of school culminated in a visit from an Olympian. Laurie Hernandez joined Sacred Heart students, sharing her faith, journey, and goals. “Everyday leads up to what you want to do.” said Hernadez. “Your future doesn’t start in 10 years, it doesn’t start in a few months. It starts right now and you get to decide where you go from here.”

Since bringing home the Gold and Silver medals at the 2016 Rio Olympic Games, 17-year-old Hernandez has gone on to win the coveted Mirror ball trophy on “Dancing with the Stars” Season 23. She also recently published her first book titled “I Got This: To Gold and Beyond” chronicling her journey thus far was published in January 2017, hitting the New York Times Best Sellers list. Laurie is known for her dazzling floor exercise routine where she has been nicknamed the “human emoji” for her outgoing facial expressions and for her grace and artistry on the balance beam. Laurie is a second generation American, as her grandparents are from Puerto Rico, making her the first U.S. born Latina to make the U.S. team since 1984. Laurie credits her hard work, leadership skills, and her never give up attitude to her Mom, who was in the Army Reserves while Laurie was growing up.DSC_0243

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!
