Throughout the school year, students in the Middle School have the chance to dive deeper into our academic curriculum and the Sacred Heart Goals as part of the Explorer Series for Middle School Girls. Explorer Series programming provides each grade level with the opportunity to learn outside the traditional classroom setting.
The Explorer Series is designed to immerse students in new learning environments as they develop the critical thinking skills and resiliency necessary for the 21st century.
The Middle School experienced a wonderful Explorer Series which in honor of Martin Luther King, Jr. focused on his message of loving service—a tenet deeply rooted in the Goals and Criteria of a Sacred Heart education. The prayer service is grounded in Goal I: A personal and active faith in God, as students examine how we can each use our gifts and talents to promote justice and peace in our world. As we work with our students to examine Goal III: A social awareness that impels to action, we participated in Cup of Joe, a pre-packaged breakfast program that serves breakfast to over 1,500 men and women in Catholic Charities’ shelters in Washington DC. Students also had the opportunity to connect with their entire class in community building activities that reinforce Goal IV: The building of community as a Christian Value.
