Sacred Heart welcomed home alumni, family and friends last Friday for the culmination of the Homecoming Week. During the week the 7-12th grades participated in a variety of dress up themed days — Jersey Day, Tourist Day, Senior Citizen Day, Spirit Day and Dress Up Day. The week ended with Mass, Coronation, pep fest, and the Homecoming football game.
The day started with an all-school morning Mass, concelebrated by Msgr. Mike Foltz, Superintendent, and Fr. Ilango, Sacred Heart’s pastor.
Coronation followed with the introduction of the homecoming court and the introduction of the reigning 2014 Homecoming Queen, Marina O’Leary. O’Leary, like the queens in the past few years, was invited back to Sacred Heart to crown this year’s Homecoming Queen. Senior, Hannah Reimer, was crowned the 2015 Homecoming Queen.
Joe Kulas, a 2008 graduate & member of the recently inducted Hall of Fame 2005 Baseball team, spoke to students, family, & friends during Friday’s coronation. Kulas thanked several teachers and spoke about the treasure Sacred Heart School is to students.

In the afternoon students participated in a school pep rally, inviting the students from the 4th, 5th, and 6th grades to join in on the festivities.
After a rousing faculty vs. seniors volleyball game, the students transferred to the Klinkhammer Auditorium for a lip sync contest. The winner of the contest was crowd favorite, senior Jonan Garcia, aka Johnny Cash.
Polk County West fought a tough battle and lost their first game of the season, a close one, 36-35 to visiting Fosston. The team is now 6-1 on the season as they prepare for post-season play.
