Basketball players from throughout Ventura County assembled at the Balboa Middle School Gym on Saturday morning to participate in the annual clinic created by The Palmisano Family to honor their husband and father, Joseph Palmisano. Divided into groups by age, the participants were coached by Joseph & Mary Palmisano’s children with the talent and skills they developed throughout their high school, college, and coaching careers. The fundamentals were addressed at several stations and shooting and defensive skills were emphasized at others. A 3 on 3 session completed the clinic with some players honored for their effort & skill. Each participant received a clinic tee shirt, Arrowhead Water, Jelly Belly candy, and a Power Bar from some of the many sponsors of this clinic. All proceeds are placed in The Joseph Palmisano Memorial Scholarship Fund which is used to award a month’s tuition to one student from each of the primary, intermediate, and middle school levels at the completion of our writing contest in the spring. The winners will be announced at the March 17th Assembly which is as close a school day as possible to March 19th, the feast day of Saint Joseph.
Education at Sacred Heart School is centered in Christ and is concerned with the development of the whole child. We are committed to helping students grow in trust and devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus as well as to helping them grow in the spirit of prayer, service and leadership in the Christian community. Sacred Heart School cooperates with and assists the parents or legal guardians, who are the primary educators of their children. Along with teaching Catholic dogma, doctrine, and morals, Sacred Heart School maintains a strong, innovative curriculum. It is our goal to promote a school atmosphere that is enlivened by Gospel values, intellectual proficiency, and self-esteem.
