Another school year is drawing to a close and we thank God for all the
blessings given to our Parish school in this past year.
Our grand 8 students are coming to the end of their years with us at
Sacred Heart school and we offer them our congratulations and our
prayers as they prepare to move on to the next step on their educational
journey-the important high school year which will help them choose the
future education for their lives.

Please remember, depending on

September, classes may need to be
re-organized. Student grade placement will be made available on the
first day back. If you are moving to
another school area, please contact
the school to inform us of your
change so that we can adjust our
numbers for September.
New School Website
In September, our new website will be launched and information will be provided to help you with the
subscription process. It is our goal to have all families ‘subscribe’ to our school websites. By doing this
you will receive information directly in your email ‘inboxes’ from the school. This general information
includes newsletters, calendars, principal messages, etc. The reason that we moved to this method was to
give our parents/community the opportunity to ‘sign up, manage/change and opt-out’ of electronic correspondence.

First Day of School. WELCOME BACK!
The Youth Ambassadors of Christ would like to take this opportunity to thank our entire school community for once again showing their love and care for the less fortunate. At least 25 garbage bags of gently
used clothing, bedding and towels have been collected for the St. Vincent De Paul Society of Brant.
Thank you for helping us with this very important local initiative.
The Sacred Heart Youth Ambassadors of Christ
On behalf of the Sacred Heart Green Team, we’d like to extend a huge thank
you to our school community and neighbours. On Saturday April 25th, 2.31
tonnes of E-Waste was collected in a bin located in our school parking lot. A
cheque will be issued to our school for $427.35. We would also like to thank
our community for taking the time to help divert electronic waste from our
landfill sites. Together we can make a CHANGE! Go GREEN Go!
Parents are reminded to drop off children at the
front parking lot and to park at the front of the building
when picking up children, NOT at the school bus zone. It is a
safety risk to have children cross between school buses and
across school bus lanes.
Thank you for your co-operation.
Student Achievement Award
Congratulations to Matthew Raney!
Matthew is this year’s recipient of a Student Achievement Award, presented by the
Council for Exceptional Children. He received his award at a ceremony on May 21st
at Simcoe Composite School, where his many accomplishments were given much
deserved recognition.
Paraprofessional Award
The Council for Exceptional Children hosted its Annual Awards Night on Thursday,
May 21, 2015, beginning at 7:00 p.m. at Simcoe Composite School in Simcoe. This
night is dedicated to the recognition of both exceptional students and those who
support them. This year, Michelle Ferguson received a Paraprofessional Award for
her dedication and commitment to supporting students with special needs. Please
congratulate Michelle on her award. We are so proud that one of our own has been
recognized for all that she does in our community to advocate for student success.

Teach Your Family to Be Sun Smart
As the warm weather approaches and summer draws near, it’s hard to resist going outside to relax or
have fun. While the sun’s warm rays may feel good on our skin, too much sun can be harmful!
Keep yourself and your children well protected from the sun’s harmful rays by following these tips.
 Avoid the sun between 11 a.m. and 4 p.m., when the sun’s rays are the strongest
 Wear long sleeve, loose fitting clothing that will keep you cool and protected from the sun’s rays
 Wear a wide brimmed hat that covers the face, ears and neck
 Wear sunglasses with UVA and UVB protection
 Cover your eyes by wearing sunglasses that protect from both UVA and UVB rays
Apply sunscreen with an SPF of 15 or higher and remember to:
Put it on 20-30 minutes before going out.
Reapply it every 2-3 hours and after swimming or sweating a lot.
Make sure your skin is dry before putting it on.
 Protect your lips by using a lip balm with SPF 15 or higher
Choose to stay in a shaded area if possible.
