Philosophy & Approach

Curriculum & Teaching Approach

From the Director:

The children are offered a developmentally age appropriate program. Religious Studies is a daily activity that introduces the children to the wonders of God's creation, the joy of prayer at circle time and singing God's praises throughout the day. Eurhythmics, dance and singing, art, library, physical education and learning centers are integrated into the program. Weather permitting and with parental involvement, field trips and visits to the park are conducted to offer a well-rounded and fun-filled experience. Reading and Mathematics are nourished through storytelling, picture stories and hands on experiences. Extracted from website 5/06

Day in the Life

General School Mission

The School of the Blessed Sacrament is a parish based Pre-K through eighth grade Catholic elementary school. The school celebrates diversity and encourages love of God, self and others. Our parish, families, faculty and staff collaborate to educate the heart and mind, and empower the children to embrace challenges in a loving, faith-filled environment.

Our well-rounded curriculum incorporates strong ethical values and the development of each child's God-given academic potential. We integrate technology, fine arts, music and physical education programs to provide a liberal arts education for the whole child.

The primary aims of a Blessed Sacrament education are to foster Christian leadership, individual responsibility and service to those in our community and beyond.

Home-School Connection

Home-School Connection: From the Director

Since, as parents, you are the child's first teachers, you are our partners in education. Therefore, regular communication with you is an essential part of your child's school experience. Scheduled parent conferences allow teachers and parents to discuss student acheivement as well as to develop means to assist students in areas of difficulty.
