Sacred Heart School's 2018 Catholic Schools Week Eighth Grade Carnival!
It's GOOD, no…GREAT, no….not there yet….let’s say FANTASTIC-WE-WANT-TO-DO-BACK-FLIPS-OUR-HEARTS-ARE-GOING-TO-BURST-IT’S-SUCH-HAPPY NEWS! :) The eighth graders and their dedicated parents planned and implemented the most successful Carnival to date. Special thanks to Erin Schneider, Carnival Chair, for her motivating correspondence and leadership throughout the project. Everyone had a fabulous time at the event. The eighth grade students decided that
ALL the proceeds of their Carnival would be donated to...
Happy Hearts Working!
When it was all said and done, the eighth grade class, through ticket sales, carnival games, salsa and a super-awesome raffle, generated funds with a Grand Total of:
Wahoo!! That’s right! $4,510.91. Actually, the funds kept coming in even after the Carnival so HHW ended up with over $5,000 from our community. Not only was the financial contribution significant, but the camaraderie and pure LOVE was priceless. You know when you’re heart may burst, it’s so full? Yep, that is how we felt about this whole beautiful endeavor.
Sacred Heart School Eighth Graders, along with the dedication of their parents, worked endlessly to make the Carnival during Catholic Schools Week both meaningful and memorable! All involved in planning and implementing understand the purpose of HHW, a nonprofit organization that will support one of their own, Jack! The Eighth Graders chose to do a project that supports their faith, makes a difference and that makes us very proud! Sacred Heart Church and School are home to HHW and the foundation our organization's faith; we are so grateful to those that support our cause! Everyone is welcome at HHW and can become an active part of our growing community of support! Special thanks to Ben Chapman for all his hard work preparing what you are about to see. Enjoy the video!
Because of Sacred Heart School's giving hearts, Jack and other HHW Associates, who graduate from high school with Intellectual and/or Developmental Disabilities will have a safe place during the week to gather together in prayer, continue life skills development, work purposefully for earnings, give back to our community by volunteering, and also have planned social activities shared with friends!
