"The rain came down... and the winds blew and beat against the house; yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock." ~Matthew 8:25
In 1916 it was stated: "Now while the Church is free of debts, Father Zarb is trying to erect the Parochial School House. It shall be a two story brick house 30x72 feet and is to cost $4500." On September 17, 1933 after the parish celebrated its Golden Jubilee, Sacred Heart School opened its doors to the Floresville community with a special Blessing of the school followed by a barbeque dinner. The school was accepted and operated by the Sisters of the Incarnate Word and Blessed Sacrament until August of 1950. in September of 1950, Sacred Heart School opened its doors as a parochial school and the parish became responsible for the upkeep and utilities. At that time, only two classrooms were in use. Thereafter, a classroom was added every year. In 1957, four Sisters and one lay teacher were responsible for teaching 215 children enrolled at Sacred Heart School. During the 1960s and early 70s, many Catholic schools were on the verge of closing their doors. Fortunately Sacred Heart School managed to survive due to the ongoing presence and determination from parents, grandparents, friends and the surrounding community. Many families and community members consider the school a historical landmark and will do what it takes to keep breathing life into it.
Many factors have contributed to the growth and success of Sacred Heart School: stability, tradition, academic excellence, Christ-like behavior among outstanding Floresville citizens, respect for others and property, and the Love for God.
