How Does The Garden Grow? Lush & Green!

Sacred Hearts Academy Lower School Gardening Class
Gardening provides a dynamic environment in which students observe, discover, experiment, nurture and learn! 

Students in the Lower School can now delve into this exciting world with second grade teacher, Veronica Prislin, who is conducting gardening lessons from 2:30 to 3:15 p.m. each week on Monday and Thursday. Prislin will use the garden as a laboratory to introduce students to scientific methods through plan-related experiments. 
“Gardening provides a place to study weather, insects, soil and other environmental factors. It also provides students with knowledge of the benefits of living a more healthy lifestyle by being more receptive to eating fruits and vegetables, and it encourages them to be aware of their choices and eat nutritious meals.” -Veronica Prislin
This gardening endeavor is part of a wide array of after-school options available for Lower School students to explore – from Musical Theatre to Smart Karate to Violin

WANT MORE DETAILS OR TO SIGN-UP? Parents of students interested in exploring Gardening and other After School Program options should contact Melanie Ah Soon at mahsoon@sacredhearts.org.

Hello Students, Parents and Guardians, and Staff:

The school has continued to closely monitor the Tropical Storm Olivia.  At this point in time, no cancellations have been made in after school sports and activities. (The only exception is the College Night for Juniors; which has been re-scheduled to take place on Tuesday, September 18th at 6PM.) School at this time has not been cancelled for Wednesday.

However, changes can be made quickly so will you be attentive to SHA EDUCATE throughout the evening and early morning. 

Sincerely,

Tropical Storm Olivia Update #1

September 11, 2018

Students, Parents and Guardians:

Although Tropical Storm Olivia continues to weaken, it appears at present that the storm will pass directly over the islands of Maui, Molokai and Lanai and pass just south of Oahu on Wednesday.  This is a current projection and could change over the next 24 hours.

Please stay attentive to your email messages in the next few hours from SHA EDUCATE.  As soon as a decision is reached regarding after school activities for today (Tuesday) and closing of school for Wednesday, you will be notified.

The safety of our students and their families is our first consideration.

Sincerely,

Betty White
Head of School

Starting College, Early That Is!

Sacred Hearts Academy Early College Program
Chaminade University, Fall 2018
Sacred Hearts Academy is again offering a program that allows students to get a “jump start” on the next phase of their studies by starting college early! This fall, Chaminade University (CU) joins Leeward Community College (LCC) in the school’s “Early College Program” (ECP) efforts. 

Under the program, qualifying High School students enroll in select collegiate courses while completing their regular curriculum studies. This process earns a “dual credit” that applies to their High School graduation requirements while receiving college credits in the process. 

Eight Academy students are currently enrolled in one of the many ECP courses, such as World Civilization, World Religions and Introduction to Expository Writing, which meets weekly on the campus of Chaminade University. In these courses, taught by CU faculty, the Academy participants are integrated with their collegiate students. 

This semester, the Academy has 17 students enrolled in LCC’s ECP offering, Psychology, held on the Academy’s campus. During the spring semester, Academy students entered in the program will enroll in ICS101: Digital Tools for the Info World

Eden Arthur, Agnes Brown, Ashley
Zeidler and Kaitlyn White on the campus
of Chaminade University
Only Academy students in grades 10 to 12 are eligible to take ECP courses, and College Counselor Randy Fong coordinates the Academy’s efforts in this area. In addition to earning dual credits, ECP has many additional benefits, including: 

  • Advanced classes not offered on campus, such as Chinese, can be taken.  
  • Early college courses strengthen transcripts and help applications stand out.
  • These classes help prepare students for the rigors of collegiate-level coursework.
