Introduction Letter from Mr. Coyle
Dear Parents of our Wonderful Community,
God is good! As I begin serving as your principal, I can’t help but feel exuberant as I think of God’s many blessings in my life, especially the blessing of being called to this important position. Sacred Heart has been a place of great grace, joy, and faith for my wife and I as parishioners of many years, and I know that those gifts can only increase for us as I start this role. I now have the chance to express my gratitude for Sacred Heart by taking up the most important work there is to do: growing the love for our Lord and our faith, academic talents, and call to service of our students, teachers, and entire community. This of course is our mission, and this mission is both vital and life-bringing. Our faith, intellect, and call to serve is what offers us the genuine freedom God promises us, and the chance to live lives of purpose, dignity, and love.
I see amazing gifts in our school. Our community’s love for God and our faith are strong, and God is present with us every day. We have loving and joyous families. We have a mission that renews hearts and spirits and gives us all a genuine calling and purpose. We have teachers and staff who come here to spread joy and to help young people encounter Christ while developing their academic abilities. We have a beautiful campus with high quality, state of the art facilities. We are a strong school. I ask for your prayers and support to help us all see these blessings with renewed eyes, and to help others in our community see these rich gifts as well. If we pray this in earnest and pray this together, we can be assured of God’s answer. Christ Himself told us “ask, and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you” (Mt 7: 7).
To pray together, to work together, we need to truly know and embrace one another, and I am perhaps most excited to begin meeting all of you. To that end, I’d like to invite you to one of three evenings for us to meet and start this exciting journey together. We have arranged these meetings by school level. If you are in town, please come to the meeting that matches your son or daughter’s grade:
-Early Childhood (Pre-K – 2) Monday, July 14, 7:00-8:00 Media Center
-Intermediate (3-5) Tuesday, July 15, 7:00-8:00 Mother Seton Room
-Middle School (6-8) Wednesday, July 16, 7:00-8:00 Mother Seton Room
I hope the rooms will be bursting! I’d also like to update you that we will be posting the summer packet online by the end of the month, for any who have been looking for that. I thank you for your time in reading this letter, and I look forward to knowing you all and to growing our community together.
May God bless you and keep you,
Zachary S. Coyle
At Sacred Heart School, we recognize each person as a living expression of God’s love. We accept each person as intrinsically good and deserving of unconditional respect. We believe each person is unique, having special talents, abilities and needs. We believe that each child is a multi-dimensional child of God. We accept responsibility for fostering not only a child’s intellectual growth, but also for fostering a child’s spiritual, emotional, social, and physical development.
The message of Christ is central to all that we do at Sacred Heart School. As a faith community, we are striving to build God’s kingdom on earth. In the words of Archbishop Oscar Romero, “ This is what we are about: We plant seeds that one day will grow. We water seeds already planted, knowing that they hold future promise. We lay foundations that will need further development. We provide yeast that produces effects beyond our capabilities.”
So, welcome to our Catholic school! We invite you to join us in our mission to cultivate in our students the knowledge, attitudes, skills and virtues that will enable them to be serving members of our world in a manner reflective of Judeo-Christian values. May Jesus Christ, the model of all teachers, be our encouragement in this important ministry of Catholic education. Surely, He, who said, “Suffer the children to come unto me” will bless our efforts in His name.
