Sacred Heart School receives technology grant

OND Staff Report

Sacred Heart School received a grant for more than $50,000 from the Mount Saint Benedict Foundation to use for their Technology Advancement Project.

“Without the Sisters of St. Benedict, our school wouldn’t be here today,” said Carl Adolphson, President of Sacred Heart School. “They gave so much over the years as teachers and administrators in the school and parish, and their selflessness and continued willingness to give is an example for all to follow.”

The grant will be used to update the school’s computer laboratory and create a mobile testing unit.

As Technology Coordinator for Sacred Heart School, Sarah Effhauser says she works to provide the students and teachers with meaningful, current technology to enhance and enrich their classroom experience.

“With this generous gift from the Sisters of Mount Saint Benedict, we will be able to continue to build upon the educational foundations of the sisters as we offer 21st Century technology tools in the areas of learning and assessment for our students and teachers,” she said.

“Mount Saint Benedict Foundation takes great delight and joy in being able to continue the sisters’ legacy of education by helping enhance learning at Sacred Heart School through the use of technology,” said Sister Denise, Director of the Mount Saint Benedict Foundation.
