Community Service

SACRED HEART FOOD DRIVE 2014
Click to see what items your class is assigned. Thank you!



The mission of the Service Learning Program is to benefit Sacred Heart students as well as the community at large.

While academics, social growth and cultural pursuits contribute to a student's development, service learning helps create a well-rounded person by enhancing personal growth. Serving others leads to a fuller awareness of one's surroundings and of fellow members of the community. As students connect their own lives with the lives of others, they will be able to consider the world with a broader perspective. This is an integral part of being a responsible citizen and a member of the Sacred Heart family.

SOAP (Service and Outreach, Advocating Philanthropy)

SOAP is a group of Middle School students who meet to discuss social awareness, assist in various fundraisers and help pick up and drop off donated items. This group helps other students see the needs of others around the world and supports Kiva

Parental Support

The encouragement, support and involvement of parents in the Sacred Heart community are key components to the success of our undertakings. Active parental participation in offsite service programs for the 7th and 8th graders fulfills a critical need. Classroom programs may require chaperones for off site and on site activities or in-class assistance to develop and nurture a certain program. We call on socially and community active parents to share their experiences with our students in assemblies or class meetings. The Howard Area Christmas Baskets program is strongly reliant on parent support for tasks such as shopping, wrapping gifts and delivering baskets to Howard Area Community Center. Traditional programs such as food, clothing, toy and toiletry drives also rely on parent help in promoting the drives as well as delivering materials. The Misericordia Family Festival is an annual event and our 8th grade students take on the task of clean-up the day after the event each year.
