Parents bring sunshine to Sacred Heart

A group of parents within the Sacred Heart Catholic School Parent Support Group bring sunshine to the students.

The Sacred Heart School Parent Support Group (PSG) brightened up the day for students with a surprise from the sunshine club, a group of parents within the PSG who plan fun activities and surprises for the students.

The sunshine club provided a small sun and Hershey Kiss to all the students before recess.

“A little something to brighten their day,” said Tara Sherlock, organizer of the first surprise of the year.

School principal Nick Iachetta is thankful for such a caring and committed group of parents.

“They make up the heart of our school. Even with the Ethnic Dinner coming up, they will still go out of their way to make the students feel special. We are very lucky.”

The school’s annual Ethnic Dinner and Auction will be held Oct. 19  with a Mexican Fiesta theme.

The Parent Support Group has already planned crazy hair day on Oct. 16, Halloween activities and pumpkin carving later in the month, and a community movie night Nov. 7.

The PSG hopes that more families will take advantage of the small classes and community feel within the school.

“As a parent, we tend to look to other parents for advice. We are always willing to chat if anyone has questions about the school” says PSG chair Leigh Pinette.

Sacred Heart is still accepting students and all students are welcome.
