One Heart Program

Sacred Heart School recognizes those students who, through their everyday actions, create a climate that fosters a positive and loving school environment.

Sacred Heart School is committed to becoming a One Heart community where everyone feels safe, secure and valued. Our words and actions support the guiding principles of the Catholic faith by accepting individual differences, including others, and sharing ideas with a positive, welcoming attitude.

Demonstrating the One Heart vision means:

  • Working cooperatively and using appropriate resolution skills to solve conflict
  • Promoting and following the Golden Rule — Do unto others as you would have them do unto you
  • Greeting each other with a smile and demonstrating good manners
  • Noticing, stopping, and taking the time to help those in need
  • Including others in work and play

With One Heart we are dedicated to building a culture of cooperation and a respect for boundaries and relationships.
