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!"

Uniform Update

Good morning friends and Families of SHS! I want to announce some changes/options for Regulation uniforms! These changes will allow our community to grow with today’s ever changing world!

1- Girls in grades K-6 will now have the option to wear Navy Blue slacks (dress pants) in addition to the designated Navy Blue skirt or jumper. All other parts of the uniform will remain the same.

2- Boys and Girls in grades k-6 will be allowed to wear Navy Blue shorts or sweatpants for PE classes/days all year!

These adjustments will be made in our Student/Parent handbook next week!
Questions may be directed to Mr. Camenga at dcamenga.shs@gmail.com

Enjoy your day everyone!

Last Night’s PSA Meeting Took Flight!

Thank you to all of the parents who attended last night’s PSA meeting.

Courtney Townsend and Melissa Bill are co chairing the 80’s Dance in November and could really use help in a variety of roles. Please contact them or the school office if you can assist.

Mr. C ended the meeting with an aerodynamic task which even provided prizes for the participants-flying paper airplanes into a basket.
