By | February 29, 2012

On Jan. 31, Minter sent a letter to all parents and families of Sacred Heart School expressing regret for the incident and applauding the diverse cultural heritages and influences that are a part of the Sacred Heart community. In the letter, he also announced the beginning of a new cultural awareness program at the school designed to initiate conversation, raise awareness and celebrate Sacred Heart’s cultural diversity.

In his letter, Bound announced the need for cultural diversity training, not only at Sacred Heart School, but at all Catholic schools in the Diocese of Green Bay. He further explained that plans will be directed to a partnership with the Menominee people to implement training at Sacred Heart in the coming months. All cultural groups, including the Menominee people, will then be invited to bring forth ideas for an action plan to bring cultural awareness and sensitivity to all diocesan schools.
