Parents and teachers were all proud of the students’ accomplishments and progress in learning their chosen instruments – guitar, clarinet, flute, trumpet or violin – at Sacred Heart’s Winter Music Concert on December 6. It was testament to the students’ hard work as they played Christmas carols for everyone’s enjoyment.Now in its third year, the school partners with the Young Musician’s Foundation (YMF), which provides students in grades 4-8 the opportunity to play an instrument. Sacred Heart Principal, Sister Maria Elena Gutierrez, O.P., sees value in teaching the arts as well as the positive effect it has on students’ overall academic learning.

Since the majority of families served by the school live at lower income levels, the program is only possible through the shared vision and generosity of donors.
