Each trimester students in the middle school (grades 6-8) are recognized for academic achievement at two levels. An average of 95% or higher in the core subjects (Religion, Language, Literature, Vocabulary, Social Studies, Math and Science) is required to receive the Sacred Heart School Academic Excellence Award or Honors with Distinction. An average of 85% to 94% in the core subjects is required to receive the Sacred Heart School Academic Achievement Award or Honors. To receive First or Second Honors, a student must maintain a grade of B or above in Effort & Behavior and earn a grade of 85% or higher in all of the core subjects. The awards will be presented at an honor roll ceremony and followed by a reception for family members and other guests. Invitations were delivered to students who achieved this recognition for the first trimester after report cards were sent home last week. A list of our Middle School Scholars is enclosed in The Family Envelope. Congratulations to all who excelled during the first trimester!
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.
