Dear Sacred Heart Family,
With Pope Francis on U.S. soil as I write, I am thinking of the Jesuit motto, ad majorem Dei glori-am, which reminds us to humbly pursue excellence toward the greater glory of God. At Sacred Heart, we do that as a family, and as a team. Thus, our leadership responsibilities and privileges are shared.

Dear Sacred Heart Family,
What an amazing Mass we had on Monday, with our friends and partners at St. Mary’s, as Archbishop Sample helped us celebrate the beginning of our 150th year! Archbishop Sample was also able to visit a number of our classrooms; he had very positive things to say about our program, and it was very special for our students to have the privilege to get to know him a bit.

Dear Sacred Heart Family,
Welcome back! I guess I didn’t realize how much I missed our students, parents, and teachers, over the busy summer. What a joy it is as the building comes to life this week! I’m composing my letter today surrounded by happy children at play on our newly sealed asphalt and fresh bark chips–evidence of our summer playground/courtyard upgrade.

Dear Sacred Heart Family,
As most of you know, I spent many years as a middle and high school music teacher before becoming a principal. I fondly remember the joy of making music every day with talented young instrumentalists and vocalists, in rehearsal and performance. It was my job to teach and inform, to guide and inspire, and to prepare and polish the ensemble, to make music that allowed audiences to appreciate an excellent technical performance, but more importantly to be moved emotionally by the beauty of the music.

Dear Sacred Heart Family,
If you have not filed your taxes, today would be a good day (Happy April 15!). As we pass that date marker, as the weather begins to turn (yesterday’s mountain snow-dusting notwithstanding), and as we dig into a third trimester of rigorous teaching and learning, at school our staff and leadership thoughts and planning begin to turn to the upcoming school year.

Dear Sacred Heart Family,
I hope you had a wonderful spring break, a blessed Holy Week, and a glorious celebration of the Resurrection on Easter Sunday.
I am writing you this week from Orlando, Florida, where Barb Busch, Deb Dewar and I are representing our school, learning with and from colleagues, sharing best practices, trends, legal developments, technological advancements and innovations, and fruits of the latest research and experience, at the National Catholic Education Association National Convention and Exposition.

From the desk of Ms. Conner:
Our Sacred Heart School motto is, “A Community of Faith & Learning”. Last month my article focused on academics- “Learning”. In light of our recent survey during conferences I thought I would focus this article on some of the points that YOU shared. The three things that rose to the top continually about why YOU are at Sacred Heart, and what sets us apart were: Community, Faith/Values, and our Teachers.

Dear Sacred Heart Family,
What fun we had yesterday loading up our big yellow bus full of Christmas presents! Thanks for your robust participation; you helped bring a little Christmas cheer to some needy individuals and families this season in a small and simple example of our commitment to service and to the Catholic value of social justice. Great job, NJHS and Student Council, for your ongoing and growing leadership and service efforts.
