Seize this Moment Campaign

With the success of the New Day Campaign, enrollment of the Sacred Heart School has increased by over one hundred students since 2013 with continued growth projected.  To accommodate this increase and to allow for double-session classes, Sacred Heart School initiated the construction of a seven (7) classroom addition in late May 2018 as a part of the Seize this Moment campaign.  Completion of the building will be by the end of April 2019 with full completion planned for mid-August 2019.

The building addition is being named after the Sisters of Mount Saint Benedict to honor their crucial role in the success of Sacred Heart School.  The School Addition Dedication will be held at the Sacred Heart School, A.I. Merth Gymnasium (Door #2) at 1:30pm on May 10, 2019.  All are welcome!

The Seize this Moment Campaign is divided into four areas.
