School Advisory Council Overview

The School Advisory Committee (SAC) is a dedicated group of school parents, teachers, and administrators who meet regularly throughout the school year to help guide the school’s policies and activities.

Organizational Structure

The members of SAC serve as advisors to the pastor of Sacred Heart parish and the principal of Sacred Heart School. In addition, these individuals facilitate the numerous Support Group activities performed by over 25 Sacred Heart committees. For further information regarding the SAC and Support Groups, please visit the Governance page.

  • Secretary — Georgann Wiles
Support Group Sponsors and Committee Leaders

One of the first and most important accomplishments of the 2012–2013 school year was the identification of school parents willing and able to lead this year’s SAC-related volunteer efforts. In this regard, the following SAC members were selected to lead our 5 support groups:

  • Catholic Identity — Leela McDonald
  • Enrichment — Maria Blanc and Mona Awad
  • Fundraising — Cathleen Harter
  • Public Relations — Katina Caradonna and Mona Awad
  • Strategic Planning — Patrick Nash

The Support Group Sponsors play a critical role in facilitating communication between the SAC and the 25+ committees that conduct volunteer activities during the SHS school year. In addition to facilitating communication, the Sponsors also assist with the establishment of committee leaders (chairs, co-chairs, etc.) and members.

For more information regarding the Support Groups and associated committees, please refer to the Support Groups and Governance pages.

Reminder: All parents, staff and faculty members are always welcome to attend any SAC meeting. They are traditionally held on the second Thursday of each month, from 7-9 pm in the Parish Center. Minutes and agendas are available in the school office.
