Welcome from the Principal

 

On behalf of the entire faculty, and staff of Saint Mary-Sacred Heart School, welcome to our SMSH website!

The community of Saint-Mary Sacred Heart School is one of love, family, and fellowship that strives to make each new member welcome and valued.  It has done so for the 94 years of Sacred Heart School’s existence, and since 1972 when the schools of Saint Mary’s and Sacred Heart were combined.  That legacy continues, and it is my hope that you come to know all our school has to offer, and begin to envision how your child–and your family–will become new meaningful members of our school community.

I, along with my husband and our two year old son, joined the SMSH family two years ago.  We joined because we believe the mission of Catholic education helps children and families, our own included, to address the diverse and complex challenges of today’s world in a safe and faith based environment.

You might choose Catholic education for a number of reasons: the consistently strong academics at all grade levels, the safe environment, the dedication to developing persons of good character and citizenship, the involvement in and exposure to team sports, the adorable school uniforms, the authentic Catholic identity, the partnership and mutual respect that exists between you, your student’s first teachers, and the entire committed faculty and staff of the school.  Those reasons are found here at Saint Mary-Sacred Heart School.

The success of our school’s mission and community is founded on a strong partnership between our parishes of St. Mary, Sacred Heart, and St. Mark’s, the school, and our families.  Together we work to create a safe Christian environment that allows each student to develop their talents and reach their God given potential, here at SMSH, and wherever their path might take them.

I am beyond excited to share our school and our Saints with you!  We are so grateful you have taken your valuable family time to learn more about our school!

In Christ,

Mrs. Charlotte Lourenco
