Sacred Heart students enjoy Catholic Schools Week

| October 9, 2015

COSHOCTON – Megan Young loved Sacred Heart School when she was little and is glad her son now goes there.

“It’s amazing,” she said. “I like it because it’s smaller (than the public school) and he gets one on one attention here.”

Megan and her husband Travis got to enjoy some time at the school with their son Alyias during Catholic Schools Week.

Alyias, who is in kindergarten, happily munched on a cookie at the reception following the Oct. 8 special friends’ day mass. The students also celebrated with crazy hat and hair day on Oct. 7 and dress down day on Oct. 9.

“The kids were excited for special friends’ day,” said Heather Stewart, who teaches preschool at Sacred Heart. “It’s neat for them to be able to bring someone in and have special time with them that they normally don’t get to.”

Stewart teaches at Sacred Heart and also is in charge of the school’s PTO group, which organized the cookies and drinks served at the special friends’ day reception.

Jean McCurdy and her great-granddaughter Jaylynn Hewitt enjoyed the refreshments and their time together.

“I’ve enjoyed being with her and supporting her,” McCurdy said.

Hewitt, a fourth grader at Sacred Heart, was glad her great-grandmother could attend special friends’ day with her. She also said she enjoys Catholic Schools Week and attending Sacred Heart.

“We get to do cool things,” Hewitt said.

Third graders Anthony Cichon and Aidan Stevens-Woolery said Sacred Heart School is a great place to go and that they have made good friends there.

“All this week we’ve been doing something fun and different every day,” Stevens-Woolery said.
