At Sacred Heart School, Mrs. Robert’s fourth grade recently opened its New York State Native American Museum in miniature to the public, sharing its project-oriented exhibits with schoolmates and families.
Teams of students had created informative boards and three-dimensional displays, and had even dressed in appropriate costumes as they shared their findings with others. This event was an unique means of culminating a New York state social studies/English language arts module on New York Iroquois and Algonquin Indian Tribes.
Sacred Heart is an elementary school on the east side of Troy that serves children ages three through twelve. Sacred Heart supports families, the first educators of children. Together, staff and teachers work with families to encourage students to become involved, responsible, contributing members of the church and the community.
