FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL 
THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 8, 2016


Blessed Sacrament School

                                                                                                                                     August 29, 2016

 

Dear Parents,

     With the last full week of summer vacation upon us, it is my sincerest hope that all of our families had a relaxing and enjoyable summer! As we continue to prepare for the new school year, it is with much pride and satisfaction that I inform you that our entire staff will be returning.

     Our Back to School Parents Meeting will take place on Wednesday September 7th with UPK beginning at 4:30pm, grades Kindergarten through 4 at 5:00pm, and grades 5 through 8 at 6:00pm. All sessions will begin with a brief introduction in the gym and then move to designated areas where you will have the opportunity to speak with your child’s teacher.  Please make every effort to attend this meeting as much important information will be shared.

     There are some items of note I would like to share with you. First, in order to comply with state mandates our school day will officially begin at 7:50am. New schedules have been set for grades 5 through 8 where students will be switching classes beginning instruction promptly at 7:50am. Punctuality will be essential and we are asking students to be in school no later than 7:45am.  For grades Kindergarten through 4, they too will begin instruction at 7:50am and in changing what has been custom, these grades will no longer meet in the gym but rather go directly to their classroom upon arrival. UPK students will be brought to the gym where parents must sign their child in each day. The UPK school day will begin at 7:50am and dismissal for UPK will be in the parking lot at 2:10pm where students will need to be signed out.

     With our current enrollment, we are now eligible for the reimbursable New York City Security Guard Program. With this we will be entitled to have an unarmed security guard in school throughout the day. However, nothing has been finalized to this point so we are awaiting information as to when this will go into effect.

     A sincere “Thank You” to our custodial staff for their hard work throughout the summer in preparing the school for September. Coinciding with this, I am pleased to inform you that over the next week we will be having all broken and cracked windows replaced and in what hopefully will be the beginning of a lengthy process thoroughly seen through we will be having the rug removed in the 3-1 classroom and the flooring replaced with vinyl tiles. It is my great hope that we will continue to be able remove the rugs from each classroom.

     We have been notified that through government funding, the entire school will be rewired and access points will be installed in each classroom significantly upgrading our current WiFi access. This is expected to be completed sometime before the end of September.

     Throughout the Archdiocese of New York, new report cards are being implemented for all grades. They are designed to be more in-depth and provide parents with more information. One significant difference will be the combination of Reading and Language Arts receiving one grade. With the design of the report cards being different at each grade level, your child’s teacher will review them with you on Back to School Night.

     Lastly, the Parent/Student Handbook for 2016-2017 has been updated and is on the website. We ask that you kindly take the time to look through it and on the first day of school, forms pertaining to the handbook will be sent home for you to complete. We ask that all forms be returned to school by Friday September 16th.

     In closing, thank you for choosing Blessed Sacrament School. It is an honor and a privilege to be a part of the elementary school life of your children, and on behalf of the faculty and staff I assure you we will work our hardest and do our best to provide your children with best educational experience possible.

Enjoy the week ahead and we very much look forward to seeing you next week!

                           

                                                                                                       Sincerely,

                                                                                                       Joseph Cocozello

Our Mission

Blessed Sacrament School is dedicated to providing an atmosphere of love, trust and care among students.  
Our mission is to teach the Gospel message, to build community life
 in the Church and to provide service to our community.  Blessed Sacrament School provides students with a Christian foundation as it assists students to develop 
spiritually, emotionally, academically, physically, and socially.   

What we Live by:

"Preach the Gospel at all times.  When necessary, use words."
                                                                                                      St. Francis of Assisi

Here at Blessed Sacrament, our ultimate priority is to create an environment where our students know that they are loved and cared for by all.  
As educators, our first priority is to be role-models for the impressionable students entrusted in our care.  
As a Catholic Institution, we put Christ first in both our actions and our teachings.  
We encourage and welcome the daily visits by our pastor, Monsignor Finn and our parish priests, Fr. Frank and Fr. Roby.  
Academically, we strive to provide our students with the best education possible, preparing them for the grade ahead and ultimately high school.  
Discipline breeds success and we encourage positive reinforcement and opt to teach rather than punish 
as our first avenue towards correcting negative behavior or actions.  
In sum, it is our philosophy that children will not only succeed, but excel if they are comfortable in their environment.  
It is our goal to provide that environment and challenge them beyond their own expectations!

What Blessed Sacrament is:


"Blessed Sacrament is not just a school, it's a family.  It's a place where you're not afraid to be yourself.  You learn
in an environment filled with fun and happiness.  The students never hesitate to ask questions and the teachers
never hesitate to help a student in need.   The students are friendly and always welcoming to one another.
Overall, Blessed Sacrament is a school where you won't just learn, you'll excel, and you'll be happy doing it."
