Letter from Mrs. Conlan

Dear Parents and Guardians,

I hope that you are all enjoying the spring weather. How wonderful it is to see the plants and trees blooming again. We only have a few weeks left of school and some exciting things will be happening.

Thank you to everyone who contributed to the Walk A Thon. We were able to raise over $41,000 for Sacred Heart. Thank you to Mrs. Marci Tempesta for organizing the online platform for us. Nothing could stop us from walking on that day. Many thanks to our business sponsors. We will be displaying these businesses on our fencing for the rest of the year. We also had many Anonymous donors that were very generous in their giving. I am grateful to all of the friends and family who gave to this event.

COGNIA has released the results from the information we submitted and the interviews that were held in March. I am happy to say that Sacred Heart performed very well. More information regarding this accreditation process will be coming soon. 

Grades 1 – 8 will be taking a field trip to the Bronx Zoo. Parents who are interested in chaperoning are asked to fill out the following form: https://forms.gle/owrzCy7aLsYrmT1y8. Thank you to Mrs. Reinhart who coordinated the details for us. 

I am looking forward to seeing our students learn outside the classroom. It should be a wonderful day.

The second graders had their First Communion last week. They were so happy to receive the Body of Christ. Thank you to Mrs. Marsar for teaching them Religion in such a wonderful way. 

Thank you also to all of the parents who put together the Communion Breakfast last week. It was very special to see the families gathered there. I look forward to many other events where families can come together. Many thanks to Miss Jessica for teaching the songs and to Msgr. Machalski, who joined us on that day.
