The following programs are offered after school during the Fall and Spring semesters. Information about the after school programs are sent home to the appropriate grades 2-3 weeks before the programs start with a description of the program and the time frames. We try to offer at least one program that is suitable for each grade. All the programs take place at Sacred Heart in our classrooms. There is a nominal cost for participating to pay for supplies, etc. for some programs. These programs aim to compliment the children's education in various ways and have had wonderful success to date. If you have a suggestion for an after school program, please contact the school office.
