Sacred Hearts School to host ‘Shadow a Student Day’

By Staff | Apr 4, 2013

Students in grades 4-7 who want to learn more about what it is like to attend Sacred Hearts School can shadow sixth and seventh grade students on Wednesday, April 17.

LAHAINA – When Benjamin Franklin said, “An investment in knowledge pays the best interest,” he might well have been speaking about Sacred Hearts School.

With a proud heritage of teaching Lahaina’s children for 150 years, Sacred Hearts continues to live up to its mission statement to provide excellence in education and to nurture a life of prayer, faith and service in the Catholic tradition.

What do we mean by this second part? Our children learn to love and respect each other and the world around them. They learn that they are not just passengers on this journey of life, but active participants with a shared responsibility to love and protect their neighbor and the Earth we live on.

They learn to be followers of Jesus – not just in words, but in actions. They become part of the Sacred Hearts family.

Most of you have been on the campus for the Bazaar or other special events, but have you ever wondered what it is really like to attend?

In response to the many requests, Sacred Hearts School is opening its classroom doors for its first “Shadow a Student Day.”

Students in grades 4-7 who are interested in learning more about what it’s like to attend Sacred Hearts are invited to join the sixth and seventh grade students on Wednesday, April 17, to see what the school has to offer.

Be a member of the class and follow your assigned student guide for the day. Come witness history come to life as you participate in our history projects. Do a science experiment, see how math applies to everyday life, be a part of literature in motion by acting out a play in our literature class, and learn about how words we use today were first used by the ancient Greeks.

Be our guest for a delicious and nutritious lunch provided by Penne Pasta.

Meet the three middle school teachers, the principal, and most importantly, meet the students.

As we continue to move further into the 21st century, it becomes more important to reevaluate the educational setting. Since students learn differently, they require education and schools to meet them where they are. A safe, nurturing environment is also necessary to meet the basic needs of each individual. Natives of the digital age need to embrace the tools at hand and learn to embrace and better utilize the tools that will help them tomorrow.

At Sacred Hearts, we give our children the help they need to do all of these. Parents, let us help you to grow and nurture your child into a young adult you can be proud of.

If you are interested in having your child join the students of Sacred Hearts School on April 17, please call the school office at 661-4720 to reserve your space. Ask about available scholarships and how you can learn more about Sacred Hearts.
