Boxtops Collections Surpass Goal!
We continue to collect General Mills Boxtops to help support our school. We receive ten cents for every boxtop we send in. We set a goal to collect 40,000 boxtops in the 2012-2013 school year, which would translate into $4,000 for our school. We are happy to report that we surpassed that goal and collected 41,028 boxtops this year.
Our "Top 5 Classrooms" included:
1. Mrs. Nedrow's Pre-School 7,847 boxtops
2. Mrs. Jessen's 5th Grade 4,773 boxtops
3. Mrs. Hochstein's 3rd Grade 3,271 boxtops
4. Mrs. Miller's 1st Grade 2,715 boxtops
5. Ms. Fintowski's 5th Grade 2,491 boxtops
Keep collecting those boxtops over the summer! Let's go for 45,000 next year!

NC BEGINS SEARCH FOR SCHOOL PRESIDENT
Sacred Heart Parish has initiated a search for a President who will serve as the acting leader of Norfolk Catholic School (NCS).
For the past five months dozens of supporters of NCS have engaged in a strategic planning process to provide a roadmap for the future of the school. One of the highest priorities identified was the need to hire a president who will act as visionary leader, coordinator of the administrative team, and chief fundraiser.
A search committee composed of key representatives from the parish and Archdiocese of Omaha has been selected to identify the ideal candidate. Applications will be reviewed until the position is filled.
