It was a busy November for Sacred Heart School students
- Written by Staff
Sacred Heart School, serving Crosby/Huffman students, celebrated the Archbishop’s trip to Rome. Seventh-grade students participated in a pep rally with Eddie the Eagle, the School’s Mascot. Archbishop Sacred Heart students participated in “Go Cardinal Red” day on Wednesday, Nov. 21, in honor of the Archbishop Daniel DiNardo’s trip to Rome to receive his appointment as Cardinal. Children celebrated the occasion by wearing red and hosting a pep rally for DiNardo. They videotaped messages, cheers and songs as a tribute to him and will send the video card upon his return to Houston. Exxon Also in November, Exxon Mobil science ambassadors visited the school. Exxon Mobil employee Juliet Bauer worked with the junior high students to show them how math and science work together. Small groups collaborated on assignments working with probabilities and conducting scientific experiments. Andrea Wight, with Exxon Mobil, visited first through fourth grades discussing experiments with simple machines. The students measured forces in Newtons and learned about first class machines such as levers. Sacred Heart earns grant money to enhance curriculum through the work of Exxon Mobil volunteers. Students with family members of Exxon Mobil who are retired and volunteer are encouraged to call the school for information on volunteer opportunities that help build the school. Codfish The Thanksgiving holiday was observed with a student reenactment of the Thanksgiving of 1621. The assignment challenged the acting skills of fifth-grade students who shared a meal with kindergarten students. Students learned that lobster and codfish were served in the shared meal in 1621, although they acknowledged few, if any, would choose codfish today.
