The new school year is underway! On their first day, First through Eighth Class students were welcomed by Dr. Dempf and Mrs. Renken in the Shrine.

We look forward to a year of love, learning and growth getting underway on August 16, when Classes 1-8 begin. Yesterday evening, students and their families arrived to meet new teachers, unpack school supplies and share their excitement with friends. It’s bound to be a special year: 2017-2018 marks the 200th year of Sacred Heart education in America!
