SACRED HEART CATHOLIC SCHOOL
Our school's mission is to create "a community in which all members...assume responsibility for living and imparting a life of faith, service, and integrity."
That mission continues into our 128th year.
Attend Mass 3 days per week.
Have religious Education 5 days per week.
Every Friday our children attend Adoration.
Reconciliation is attended twice a year.
We teach our children tithing through MISSION Collections,
which is collected once a week from all the kids and goes to
different charities including Catholic Charities.
Each month, we have a First Friday Food Collection benefiting our Parish Food Pantry. All students
are encouraged to bring an item to contribute.
The 8th graders attend Mass in Fort Worth with Bishop once a year.
When the children are in the 5th grade, the boys and girls have a vocation day where they learn about becoming a Priest or Sister.
The 8th graders take a trip to Catholic Charities each year. They are prepared for this trip by learning about Refugees, and poverty throughout the year. In conjunction with other area Catholic schools, students participate in simulated "homeless" and "refugee" days.
Each year the 8th grade boys take a trip to Subiaco Abbey and Benedictine Monestary to learn about the monastic life. Our 8th grade girls spend a weekend at the Holy Angels Convent in Jonesboro, Arkansas each year to learn about life as a Sister. Both trips that give our children the opportunity to learn about vocations to the church.
Every year grades 3 through 12 facilitate Mass approximately 11 times per grade. This gives the children a sense of ownership while learning the different stages of the Mass so that they may better prepare themselves for what is going on each Sunday during Church.
