Sacred Heart welcomed Mayor Al Heggins to our Morning Assembly. She wanted to recognize our students for the tremendous effort they have shown in serving others, raising money for charities, and lending a helping hand. She read a proclamation from the City of Salisbury to our middle school student government ...and then another one to our elementary student government...and all our students!
Together our small hands make a BIG difference. This is who we are! One of the big lessons we teach is to "humble ourselves" and help those in need. Great job students! Thank you for inspiring all of us to be better neighbors. Congratulations to our Middle School and to our Elementary School who both won the Service Above Self County School Awards this year. Congratulations to Aidan Melton who was named the Elementary Student of the Year at the Rowan County Service Above Self Awards 2018. The 2018 Service Above Self awards were sponsored by RoCo United Way, the Rowan Rotary Club, Cheerwine, and Catawba College.

Sacred Heart School hosted their Annual Grandparent Social. What a great time! We all enjoyed "A Bethlehem Night", a musical story about the birth of Jesus told through the Shepherds. Our school continues to offer art, drama, and musical opportunities outside the normal classrooms. Tryouts for our Spring Musical are coming up soon...
Congratulations to 5th grader Mayla Brinkley!

Our SHCS students and families were recognized for their generosity and kindness with our local Rowan County Toys for Tots Collection. Overall, we collected 754 brand new toys for needy children to help make their Christmas brighter. This follows right along our Virtues Program of Kindness and Generosity. Toys for Tots has allowed our students to put those virtues into action. We are very thankful to 4th grader Aidan Melton, his mom (Tara Melton), and his grandmother (Colleen Smiley) for their inspiration, hard work, and dedication to help SHCS make their Toys for Tots Collection such a success.
