Our Annual Fund supports our overall strategic goals: to continue to provide a curriculum that supports academic excellence and high standards; to attract and maintain quality faculty; and to keep tuition affordable. The Annual Fund provides an unrestricted source of income which enables Sacred Hearts School to replenish and grow its resources to support these goals. With the generous support of the Sacred Hearts community - families, both past and present, grandparents, alumni, businesses and friends - Sacred Hearts will continue to make "ADVANCEMENTS" that support these skills. The children entrusted to our care from Pre-K to Grade 8 deserve nothing less! We remain true to our mission, proud of our accomplishments and pray that God will continue to bless this wonderful school community. On behalf of Sacred Hearts School faculty and students, "THANK YOU" for your thoughtful consideration. Our Annual Fund goal for the school year is to raise $75,000. We strongly ask you to make Sacred Hearts School your charitable priority this year by participating in the Annual Fund Campaign. Please join us in our efforts to achieve our goal by June 30, 2021. We thank you for helping to make our vision and goal a reality for all of the students that we serve. Susan M. Downer, M.Ed. Rev. John W. Delaney Nicole Bergeron Principal Pastor Dir.

"A Goal Without a Plan Is Just a Wish" - Antoine de Saint Lxupery As we pause to acknowledge all that our students continue to achieve within our school, we also want to express our gratitude to all those who impact our lives here at Sacred Hearts School with their donations of time, talent and treasure . . . And so, we write, to express our appreciation for YOU! We are truly blessed by your faithful support of our mission and wish to express that your generosity is deeply appreciated! Throughout each school year we launch our Annual Fund Campaign, which is our funding source for curriculum enhancements that reach all students from Pre-K through Grade 8. It is our mission to prepare our students for the future by offering them an education that teaches 21st century skills, so as to equip them for future success. With your support we continue to refine our goal of strengthening our curriculum through the implementation of a STREAM-based curriculum that is plentiful in hands-on learning and culturally rich experiences.
