Mission Statement

The mission of Parents of the Heart is:


To create community among families by providing opportunities to participate in social activities at the school;

To work in conjunction with the school's administration to provide education and enrichment opportunities for parents through workshops, lectures and seminars on timely topics.

Dear Parents,

Welcome! As a parent of a Sacred Heart student, you are a member of the Parents of the Heart (POTH). This year, we invite you to come and get to know other parents, have some fun, and do some good by participating in POTH events.

I hope to see you at the Parents of the Heart meetings held on the first Thursday of each month. These hour-long gatherings are an excellent opportunity to get to know other parents, to learn about upcoming events, and to hear from Nat Wilburn, Head of Schools, and other Administrators.

The Schools rely on the involvement of parents, and we need your time, skills and support. Throughout the year, there will be many opportunities for parents to attend events and to get involved.

Thank you in advance for helping to make 2017-18 another successful year!

Sincerely,


Michele Sparks
Parents of the Heart President 2017-18
(Mother of Charlotte A8 and Christian H’15)
