The Showtime performing arts troupe put on a colorful show at the end of their three-week summer camp. Going Bananas was written, staged, choreographed and performed by camp participants in Classes 2–8. What a fun experience and production!  Thanks to Laurie Strickland, director.

This week we welcome campers to Just Imagine!, a creative play camp with daily themes for children entering Pre-Primary and Primary.

There are three other summer camps offered in July:

Sacred Heart educators from around the country will convene in St. Charles June 20–25 for two Network of Sacred Heart Schools conferences. The first half of the week will be a chance for Administrative teams and Heads of School from the 24 Network schools in the U.S. and Canada to come together in the spirit of Sacred Heart education. The second conference, Roots That Give Us Wings, describes Sacred Heart history, education, values, and traditions for educators desiring to make a difference through Sacred Heart education. Initially for new Sacred Heart employees, Roots has grown into a historical and reflective journey for those in Sacred Heart education, including Boards of Trustees, staff and faculty.
