Welcome to Sacred Heart School!  Each new year brings new personalities, new programs and new excitement.  Thank you for 

taking the time to learn more about us!


Focusing on our school's mission statement and service to others will mold our students into the likeness of Jesus.  Our weekly

masses and prayer services, as well as the integration of Gospel values, will develop the spirituality of all present.  Even our

interactions in the lunchroom and the playground offer opportunities to problem solve and forgive.  Christ is everywhere! 


The student council will continue to share new ideas and lead events for the betterment of the school and for our community.  What a great way to build leadership skills in students! 


Curriculum improvements are never-ending.  While we are implementing a new Science curriculum, infused with the Next Generation Science Standards, teachers are learning new ways of making every lesson engaging and meaningful.

Open communication is a key component of a successful school year.  The School Messaging system, one-on-one conversations, emails, and regular parent newsletters will aid in this communication.  Please do not hesitate to contact me by phone (563-652-3743) or by e-mail (jenny.litterer@sacred-heart-maq.pvt.k12.ia.us) if you ever have a question, a concern, or an idea to share. 


The Sacred Heart Association of Family & Faculty (SHAFF) is gearing up for another year as well.  The Carnival in the downtown green space, Red Wheel sales, and a family dance will add to social and financial successes of the year.


Come and join us for our weekly liturgies at 9:00 a.m. on Fridays or our weekly prayer services on Tuesdays at 3:00 p.m. in the school gymnasium.  There is nothing more God-centered than gathering with a large group of children for prayer.  This is what we're about!


If you're interested in joining the children for lunch or would like a tour of the school, please contact Jean at our school office (563-652-3743).  We welcome your visit.


I look forward to a terrific school year.  Thank you for sharing your children with us!
