Sacred Heart Catholic School

Christmas Shoe Boxes

“Sacred Heart has continued to be a community of support, love and safety in education through this pandemic. Their dedication to students through distance learning, and through the reopening of schools should be a role model for the rest of the schools in the valley. My son was able to finish kindergarten and half of 1st grade with little disruption to his educational progress through the pandemic and has been able to transition back to school and continue to flourish because of the efforts of the teachers and staff. I wouldn’t want him anywhere else!”

- Meghan E. – Parent

About Christmas Shoe Boxes

Please join Sacred Heart School and our Parishes inour combined effort to bring Christmas to hundreds of children and adults in our area. We are asking that every child in our school help by participating in Christmas Shoeboxes for children and adults to be distributed by St. Vincent de Paul and the Family Nurturing Center in Medford.
