Welcome From the Principal

People tell us we are the "best kept secret in Troy!" Our first class graduated in 1927, and Sacred Heart School has been ever growing and changing since then. The brick and mortar of our large building, in many ways, represents the solid, Christian, academic foundation that our students receive here. Our curriculum is aligned with the Common Core Standards that are in place throughout our country. In addition to the rigor of Common Core, all children receive instruction in Spanish, Music, Technology, Physical Education and Art. Our teachers are dedicated to the ministry of teaching young children, while also instilling the importance of good character, service to others and values. We invite you to call for a personal tour of our "great school with a big heart!"

Classroom Buddies Helped Drama Club:

Sacred Heart School’s Pre K and Sixth Graders Had Us Tied in Knots!

The Pre K and sixth grade “classroom buddies” of Sacred Heart School filled the school hallway as they collaboratively tied knots in green felt strips for the scenery and dragon which were used in our recent play, “Shrek Jr. the Musical”.

Hundreds of knots created the hanging shrubbery and the tops of trees used in the core scenery. The working dragon was also covered in knots anchoring the costume to hula hoops.

Our Mathletics Winners Are…

Sacred Heart Schools Scores BIG in Mathletics!

Sacred Heart students have utilized Mathletics, a web-based learning program, throughout the school year helping them to enjoy math while achieving rewarding results.  Classroom teachers incorporated web access time into their routine day and encouraged student participation at home as review and reinforcement. Every family was provided with a username and password thus enabling them to have their child(ren) log on at home.

Several teachers and students were recognized at today’s morning assembly while Principal Susan Merrill presented the 2015-2016 End of Year Mathletics Report.  Achievement Certificates were presented to Abigail Winston, Claude Spanswick, Angelina MacLeod and C.J. Strong for the number of concepts mastered.  It was First grade teacher Marc Giuliano and his classroom that stole the show by Mr. Giuliano being recognized  for the Champion Teacher Award, Superstar Improvers Award, Mathletics Legends Award, Mathasaurus Rex Class, and Human Calculators Award.

What a proud and rewarding moment for all!
