A Great Success! Notes from the Head of School: 

Dear Sacred Heart Community,

A Night to Treasure Benefit was a gala to remember!

This year’s event, held at ZANA, was a brilliant success! I am sincerely grateful to our co-chairs, Sabrina Buchanan, Penelopi Drolet, and Jennifer Lichwalla, for their dedication to organizing a beautiful evening. The support these amazing co-chairs received from the Benefit Committee, PAASH, members of each Learning Community, and devoted volunteers was truly inspiring.

Goal IV: Schools of the Sacred Heart commit themselves to educate to the building of community as a Christian value. 

Witnessing parents from each of our Learning Communities laughing, sharing conversation, and breaking bread together is a memory I will cherish from this Benefit for a long time. Our community at Academy of the Sacred Heart is special, and when I experience events like this, I am reassured to see St. Madeleine Sophie's vision come alive. 

I am proud of our families, our students, our Sacred Heart faculty and staff, our Alumnae, and our Board of Trustees. Our care for one another and our mission is powerful. This care defines our culture of philanthropy and makes a difference in the world through Sacred Heart education. 

Thank you for your generous support of Philanthropy at Sacred Heart. With your help, we exceeded our fundraising goal and raised over $350,000!  

Thank you,
Damian Hermann
Head of School
