Spiritual Adoption
Thank you for helping your child to develop a deeper understanding of
God’s love of life. Please continue to pray this prayer with your child daily.
Jesus, Mary, and Joseph, I love you very much. I beg you to spare the life
of the unborn baby that I have spiritually adopted.
Fourth Month – December
I am now about 6 inches long and weigh 6 ounces. My heart is beating 140 beats per
minute and pumps up to 25 quarts of blood per day. I can taste and hear sounds and
voices now. When I sleep, I have dreams and loud noises can wake me up. I am
completely formed and the doctor can tell if I am a boy or girl from the ultrasound
pictures. By the end of this month I will be 9 inches long and weigh 10 ounces.

HOLIDAY VENDOR BLENDER
The 6th Annual Holiday Vendor blender was a HUGE success,
thanks to all our wonderful vendors, volunteers & customers! We
had over 30 vendors, and so many fantastic items were donated
for our upcoming Gala! Thank you to the Preschool & Jr.
Kindergarten parents who supplied a tremendous amount of great treats for the
bake sale! Thank you to the parents, teachers & staff who volunteered their time
working, organizing & helping with the “odds & ends” that make these things
work. Thank you to Butch Byers & Catholic United Financial for their support of
Catholic education by providing us with an extra monetary gift for SHS! We
especially give God thanks for His marvelous blessings to our Catholic
community!
Angel Tree
An ongoing tradition at Sacred Heart School, the Angel
Tree gives parents an opportunity to give teachers and staff a
gift for their classroom or work area in place of a Christmas
gift. The teachers have written items of varying costs, (all
under $15) onto angels which are placed on a Christmas tree in
the entry way of each school. If you are interested in
participating in the Angel Tree, choose an angel off of the tree, purchase the
desired item, tape the original angel on the gift and return it to school with your
name written on the angel.
Again this year, we are adding “Golden Angels”. Each teacher has written on
an angel a ‘larger ticket item’ they desire for their classroom. If you are
interested in purchasing an item from a “Golden Angel”, please see Mrs. Haberman
at the elementary or Dr. Mulhair at the middle school for these special angels as
they will not be placed on trees in the entryways at both sites.
As always, THANK YOU for your generosity and kindness this holiday season
and all year through.
Students Prepare for MATHCOUNTS!
MATHCOUNTS Coach Kim Olson is preparing her mathletes for the

beginning of November and their practice sessions in SHMS Math Club began on
November 13th. They will be meeting on scheduled days at 7:30 A.M and 3:15 P.M
so as to make sure everyone has an opportunity to participate. Your child will get a
calendar of practice times and the worksheets to practice. This competition is open
to students in grades 6-8. If you are interested in sponsoring a breakfast or
afterschool snack for the Math Club, or if you need more information, contact Mrs.
Olson at the Sacred Heart Middle School. More information will be available on Mrs.
Olson's website at www.yanktonsacredheartschool.org.

would also very happily accept donations of $50 to purchase Charlie's Pizza
House or Minerva’s gift cards. Donations can be dropped off at either school
office by Friday, December 12th, which will ensure sufficient time to figure
Christmas bonuses for the school staff. If you have questions please contact Jill
Kouri at 668-2792, or [email protected] Thank you to all of our dedicated

like you!

Lions International Peace Poster Contest
Lions International Peace
Poster Contest is an
international contest that
encourages children ages 1113, to creatively express
what peace means to them.
All 6th grade students drew a
picture depicting the theme
“Peace, Love and
Understanding.” The contest
allows students to share their
unique image of peace with
others, so that we may all
have greater tolerance and international understanding.
Congratulations to our local winners: 1st Place: Leila Schumacher, 2nd: Emily Nguyen
3rd: Ryan Trail. Leila was awarded $50 and Emily and Ryan both received $20.
Change War at Sacred Heart Middle School
St. Joseph and St. Martin House challenged the SHMS site to a change war in October
with proceeds benefitting the Radio Rosary and the school. The students had a penny
container, which was positive; and a silver container, which was a negative jar.
They put pennies in their own house and silver in competing houses. The house with
the most positive dollar amount, St. Therese, received extra special game boosters for
the dodge ball tournament which was held on November 26th. Miranda Schulte and
Noel Kusek, captains of St. Joseph and St. Martin, presented $340.00 to Sally Welter
and Sheryl Dykes for the Radio Rosary; and $340.00 to the school to be used for
something needed at the school.

the tree is both home-aid and homemade. Our children from the elementary will be
making all the decorations for the tree. The gifts and food will be collected from Nov.

Yankton Catholic Community Foundation Office News
One Heart, One Mind, One Spirit In Christ Campaign
Many, many thanks to all those dedicated parents and parishioners who have contributed
to our effort to finish paying for our amazing new facilities! We began our “silent”
campaign this past April and kicked off the One Heart, One Mind, One Spirit in Christ
officially this past September 21st. The generosity of the community has been so amazing
and is truly a blessing upon us all. As we all know, our beloved Sacred Heart School
relies on you, our parishioners and parents to thrive. From our efforts we are over half
way to our goal of $3.3 million to eliminate our outstanding debt for the new construction
here in the Yankton Catholic Community.
We have over $1.75 Million in pledges and gifts with 20% participating so far and more
gifts and pledges are coming in every day. We mustn’t forget though that it will take the
support of all of our parents and parishioners to finish the job. We have set a goal of
100% participation for this campaign and with God’s grace we will get there! The new
Sacred Heart Middle School Education Center is a blessing for students and staff alike
and is also a tribute to the sacrifice and generosity of our people here in Yankton.
This Christmas, we will all remember how thankful we are for our families and friends.
We also will remember how thankful we are to have a God who has given us his only
Son, our faith and all the many gifts we have in our lives. Among these gifts are Sacred
Heart School and our parish communities that enrich our lives so much. Help to continue
the legacy of a strong, faith-filled Yankton Catholic Community by making a
commitment to the One Heart, One Mind, One Spirit in Christ campaign. Everyone in
our Yankton Catholic Community will have the opportunity to make a gift to this
community goal, so please take advantage of this opportunity to continue enriching our
lives and the lives of your children. Have a blessed and merry Christmas!
