Troy: Sacred Heart Elementary Family Wins School's $1,000 March Raffle

Sacred Heart Elementary School knows how to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day! 

Sacred Heart School is an elementary school on the east side of Troy that serves children three through 12 years of age. At Sacred Heart, staff is dedicated to the Catholic education of young people within a family-like environment that is caring, challenging, respectful and joyful.  The school strives to endow all students with the strongest possible motivation for using their education for God, community, family and self.

March 17, the pre-kindergarten to sixth-grade students had many things to celebrate at their morning assembly led by their principal, Susan Merrill.
The children arrived at school wearing their green in celebration of St. Patrick’s Day and   the pulling of the $1,000 winner of their annual March Madness Raffle. Green dresses,  T-shirts, hats and even sunglasses filled the church for morning assembly. An expectant  drumroll added to the anticipation of our $1,000 winner – an active school family.

The assembly opened with Irish step dancing performed by five Sacred Heart students.

Shown are the step dancers and the drawing of the raffle winner.
