Day in the Life

General School Mission

Since 1922, Blessed Sacrament Catholic School inspires the pursuit of excellence, maintains a safe, warm and caring environment, affirms the uniqueness and dignity of the individual, celebrates the diversity of community, fosters family partnerships, and promotes a commitment to strong social and moral values.

A Typical Day

Students are welcomed into the classroom in the morning by washing their hands, choosing a book, and looking at their reading choice for a few minutes while everyone arrives. Then it's time for calendar and weather. The day is a mix of art projects, free play at centers, two recesses and lunch, and rotating specials that include Art, Music, P.E., Spanish, and Library. There is instruction in literacy, math, and science, with different instruction depending on age level. Each day includes several snack times as well as nap or quiet time.

Handling Separation: From the Director

Separation anxiety is handled on an individual basis, with the focus being on reassuring the child and helping them calm down so they can enjoy the day. Parents are welcome to stay to assist if they wish, but as this can draw out the separation process, most choose to let the staff handle any issues.
