Welcome to Norfolk Catholic School

Norfolk Catholic School offers instruction for Pre-K through 12th Grade and operates under the auspices of Sacred Heard Parish within the Archdiocese of Omaha, Nebraska. The Elementary and High School buildings are located on one central campus on West Madison Avenue.  Norfolk Catholic School was established in 1926 initially offering only Grades 1 through 8 and eventually expanded to serve the growing educational and spiritual needs of the parish.  Today, Norfolk Catholic School serves a student population of 620.  The school’s mission is to enable students to live their Catholic Faith and to achieve academic success. The school community is an integral part of the Catholic Church’s mission to proclaim the gospel, build faith communities, offer service to others and the celebrate through worship.  The school’s Catholic identity is strengthened by an integrated curriculum rooted in Gospel values and teachings. A positive school climate is established through the creation of a Christian environment that actively involves students, teacher, parents and community members in recognizing and respecting individual differences.

Spirit 2014 - Saturday, Novemeber 8th

Planning is underway for Spirit 2014 - Norfolk Catholic's Largest Fundraiser! We need EVERY SCHOOL FAMILY to pitch in to help us make this event a success!    A huge thank you to those people who have stepped forward and are helping us plan.  We are still in need of the following:

 *Decorating - During Daytime & Evening Hours of Thursday & Friday, November 6th & 7th

*Serve as a waiter/waitress the evening of the event.  You would serve the food to 1-2 tables.  This is a great way to "attend" Spirit if you have never gone before.

*Be a HOST/HOSTESS!  We will have people positioned throughout the entire area.  Their job is to direct traffic and promote items on the silent auction that haven't been bid on!  This is another great 
   way to attend Spirit if you have never gone before!

*Provide food/snacks for Workers - We have many volunteers who help on Thursday and Friday...can you help provide food/snacks for those who give their entire day (and lunch hours) to set things up?

*Oral Auction Spotters - On the night of the event, during the auction, these people walk the crowd and watch for people wanting to bid.
Please contact Leisa Piper at 402-371-9256 or leisapiper@sacredheartnorfolk.com if you can help fill these needs. Thank you for supporting Norfolk Catholic's largest fundraising event!
