Sacred Heart Catholic School

Cookie Day took place on Dec. 19-20. The school tradition brings students and staff together to make, from scratch, over 1,000 cutout cookies for guests of their Christmas concert. Cookie Day began five years ago when Elisha Wagenson became principal, and the students have looked forward to the tradition ever since. We pray that all families can make time and take time for traditions this holiday season.

Sacred Heart Catholic School is welcoming all families with early childhood-aged children (3-year-old preschool through kindergarten) to a circus-themed open house, “Clown Around,” from 10 a.m. to noon Jan. 14. The open house will include snacks, activities and crafts for our young guests. It will also offer prospective families the opportunity to witness firsthand what students in those classrooms learn, participate in, experience and create. It also gives families a chance to meet the staff and learn about the Christian education offered at Sacred Heart. Families can explore the early childhood classrooms, meet the teachers, talk with the principal and admissions director, learn about daily classroom and school activities and view current student projects. Families can obtain enrollment and tuition assistance information as well. Event brochures are available in the school office and on the school’s Facebook page. If you would like more information or want to schedule a personalized tour on another day, or would like to RSVP for the event, call 715-526-5328 or email Autumne Gee, admissions director, at
