Sacred Heart Celebrates Catholic Schools Week

 Falls City Sacred Heart School is celebrating Catholic Schools Week, which began Sunday and continues through the week.  This year marks the 121st year of Catholic education at Sacred Heart School, which opened in 1891 and has been open all but one year since then. 
 The Sacred Heart National Honor Society hosted an open house (this/Monday) morning as a way to thank the community for its support of Sacred Heart School. 
Monsignor Robert Roh is the Superintendent of Sacred Heart.  He says the school enjoys support from Catholics and non-Catholics alike in Falls City.  (play audio   :53)

Sacred Heart is raising funds to build a new gymnasium and activity center to replace Tiehen Gym, which was built in 1924.  Between high school, junior high, and now elementary athletic practices and activities, Monsignor Roh says the school needs more space.  (play audio  :50)
