The NCEA (National Catholic Educational Assocation) Catholic School Snaps display a series of data that can be used to help inform parents, the community, and policy leaders about the importance of Catholic schools. A quick take on issues and statistics can be viewed on the link.
It is wonderful when our graduates “give back” to their elementary school. We are blessed that Finn Welsh, Class of 2017, chose his elementary alma mater for his Eagle Scout project. Finn is a senior at Aquinas High School and attended Sacred Heart Academy from kindergarten thru 8th grade. He has been active in scouting for 10 years and is part of Troop 11. He chose to replace the Preschool fence as his Eagle Scout project! The fence poles were painted black and attractive green rubberized fencing was installed. What made this project extra special for our community is that 5 former graduates of Sacred Heart Academy helped Finn complete the fence renovation! We thank Finn for choosing his elementary school to beautify as he graduates to Eagle Scout status!!
