Required Forms for Students

Summer Academic Preparation

Summer is a wonderful time for students to play, pray, rest, read and spend time with families; to provide some ‘down’ time. We are certain that your summer plans will include enriching learning activities for your daughters. In order to keep their reading skills sharp over the upcoming months, we will have required summer reading activities.  In August, the teachers will collect and review the work completed over the summer. We know that this reinforcement will continue to help them grow as learners. We are looking forward to seeing your family in August.

Mentor Program

The Mentor Program is a program to help new families (Mentees) in adjusting to life at Carrollton.  The program is set up to help pass along the special heritage of Sacred Heart, the importance of the Goals and Criteria, and what it means to be part of our family.  We have two wonderful parents who will be our Mentor Liaisons, Marisol Hidalgo for Grades 7-12, and Michelle Berio Calderin for Grades M3-6.  Their job is to ensure that the families connect and share with the Mentors on the happenings at the school.  Mentors will be assigned in May with intentions that they reach out to the Mentees before summer.
