First Class spent most of Off-Campus Learning developing skills to read for information in Reading. The children then used their skills to research and write a report on an Endangered Animal. The children presented their reports and projects to their classmates and various faculty over the last two Tuesday’s via Zoom.
Every May, our Primary students learn to pray the rosary. Primary teacher, Mrs. Murray, sent a rosary kit to each student so they could make their own rosary while they learned about the rosary.
This week we celebrate National Teacher Appreciation Week. We truly do have the best teachers here at the Academy, who go above and beyond to educate and inspire the hearts and minds of each and every child of the Sacred Heart. They are perfect examples of living out the Sacred Heart mission. We admire their unique and innovative ways to educate, especially during our Off-Campus Learning.
This play was adapted from a book, The Great Kapok Tree by Lynne Cherry. The students were each a rain forest animal whose persuasive reasons convinced a man to not cut down the kapok tree.
In this video, listen to alums discuss what being a child of the Sacred Heart means to them and take a quick glimpse into a day in the life of a student at the Academy.
Our school community is actively engaged in Off-Campus Learning while we follow the State and County guidelines along with the CDC recommendations to suspend in-person classes. To peek inside our virtual classrooms, click here.
For over 200 years we have educated children inside these gates.
Today we embark on a new journey: off-campus learning. Although our gates may be closed, our hearts and minds are open. The faculty and staff are working beyond the gates to educate and inspire the hearts and minds of each child.
Join us daily at noon for Espacio (10 minutes of quiet reflection) so that as a school community we may be united in prayer during the coming weeks.
