NOVEMBER 19, 2012
Happy Thanksgiving! This important holiday gives each of us the opportunity to pause and reﬂect on all the
blessings God has given us. At Sacred Heart, we have much to be thankful for:
• 257 respectful students that are putting Jesus First each day as they interact together throughout the day.
• Dedicated staff that go above and beyond for the beneﬁt of the students.
• Parents that support Catholic education.
• A parish that is celebrating their 100th anniversary and is supportive in providing a Catholic education to the
students of SHCS.
• A beautiful new space that is almost ready for the grand opening. Bishop Piche will be here on Sunday,
December 2nd to bless our new space.
Let us all be thankful and make sure at the top of your list of things to be thankful for are the good things that
God in His grace has given you.
