Today, Friday, March 15th at noon, all of our students and staff gathered at the main campus's back lawn for our annual Pi Day Events! Thank you to the math club for selling tickets every morning at the main campus. They sold over 150 tickets for the Pi Eating Contest! All of our students and staff were treated to a green doughnut from Krispy Kreme. Thank you Mrs. Hipps & the Math Club for organizing all of the activities today!

The Knights have been working hard to study the first 300 digits of Pi (WOW). Last Monday, March 11th, students in grades 3rd through 8th, had an opportunity to participate in Blessed Sacrament School’s fourth annual Pi Bee!

Congratulations to the finalists: Natalie Allison (Fifth), Dennis Alvarado Zavaleta (Seventh), Matthew (Matty) Buyco (Eighth), Carter Fitzgerald (Seventh), Mason Groh (Sixth), Farah Nasrawin (Fifth), Isabella Palos (Eighth), Mckenna Peterson (Sixth), Melany Zavala Portillo (Fourth)

Dear BSS Families:

Get ready! The Scholastic Book Fair is coming our way (YAY!). Choosing their own books empowers kids and inspires them on their journey to becoming lifelong readers. AND—as always—every purchase at the Fair benefits our school. Here’s what you need to know about the big event, which will take place from March 18th-22nd at Multi-purpose Room of Blessed Sacrament School – 515 Hillcrest Avenue, Burlington, NC:


The students will have a dedicated time to browse the fair and purchase books and accessories, so make sure your children come prepared with their eWallets: say goodbye to cash and hello to eWallet—your child’s digital payment account. Before the Fair, set up eWallet for worry-free, cash-free purchases. Anyone can contribute! Share each child’s eWallet so friends and family can add funds and give your kids more books to enjoy.


We will also have a family fun night on Thursday, March 21st from 5:30-7:30 pm. The whole family will be welcome to come and see our Book Fair, so mark your calendars!


If you can’t make it to the Fair, then shop at our school’s Book Fair online. All orders ship directly to your home, and shipping is free for book orders over $25. Every online purchase will also benefit our school. Visit our Book Fair homepage to learn more and get started with eWallet and online shopping: www.scholastic.com/bf/blessedsacramentschool


The countdown to more Bookjoy is on! Catch you at the Fair!


Happy reading,

Antes de que la Feria de Los Libros comience, configure la eWallet para hacer compras sin dinero en efectivo y sin preocupaciones. ¡Cualquier persona puede contribuir! Compartan la eWallet de sus niños para que familiares y amigos puedan aportar fondos, y así sus niños podrán disfrutar de más libros.

Chicken Wing Dissection Lab


How do the muscles, bones, and tendons work together to move a joint of a chicken wing and how do they compare to a human arm? Mrs. Tichy's 7th-grade Middle School Students made an experiment in science class this week exploring these very questions.

Nice weather for snacks at the deck-Kindergarten Koalas


Yesterday, Thursday, March 14th, Mrs. Cruz & Ms. Preudhomme took their Kindergarten students to the deck for their snack time. As the weather continues to get warmer, we will see our students enjoying the outside more, and more! Thank you for sharing Mrs. Cruz!

Payments to Our School


Dear BSS Families,

Please submit any payments you need to make to our school; like field trips, accessories, tuition, or any fee directly to our school office at the main campus (515 Hillcrest Ave.). Do not send money in with your children. We will only be able to provide a receipt if you pay it at the office with Ms. Leslie Miranda. Thank you for your cooperation.

Pagos a la Escuela


Estimadas familias de BSS,

Envíe cualquier pago que necesite realizar a nuestra escuela; como excursiones, accesorios, matrícula o cualquier tarifa directamente a la oficina de nuestra escuela en el campus principal (515 Hillcrest Ave.). No envíes dinero con tus hijos. Sólo podremos proporcionarle un recibo si lo paga en la oficina con la Sra. Leslie Miranda. Gracias por su cooperación.

Goodwill Trailer


There will be a Goodwill trailer in the Main Campus parking lot from Monday, April 8th - Monday, April 15th. Thank you to the Glenn family for opening and closing the truck each day!

Chromebooks & Doughnuts


Dear Parents,

As you know, most of our students do a lot of their schoolwork on a Chromebook each day. So far this school year, we have purchased 75 new Chromebooks. These were purchased to provide all new students with a device and to replace broken ones. Unfortunately, many of our Chromebooks are still outdated.

 

We are now required by the Diocese of Raleigh to do online i-Ready and Ark Testing. In order to do this testing, students must have Chromebooks with updated operating systems. Our older Chromebooks are not capable of doing the required updates. Due to this, testing has become an even more stressful event than usual. We have been able to make it work, but we need to purchase new Chromebooks as soon as possible. 

 

For the remainder of the school year, all of our fundraising efforts will focus on raising money for Chromebooks. 

 

Our first fundraiser starts today! We have partnered with Krispy Kreme to sell digital dozens! For each dozen we sell, BSS will receive $4.50! 


https://www.groupraise.com/offer-campaigns/39754


Use this link to purchase gift certificates for a dozen donuts! Each dozen costs $12! This is a $3 discount off the normal price in the store. Once you purchase online, you will receive a voucher in your email! You can purchase them as gifts for friends and colleagues!

 

Please share with your family and friends! 

 

If you would like to donate money directly to our Chromebook campaign, please let us know! 

 

Thank you!

Estimados padres,

Como saben, la mayoría de nuestros estudiantes hacen gran parte de sus tareas escolares en un Chromebook todos los días. En lo que va del año escolar, hemos comprado 75 Chromebooks nuevos. Estos se compraron para proporcionar un dispositivo a todos los estudiantes nuevos y reemplazar los rotos. Desafortunadamente, muchos de nuestros Chromebooks están desactualizados.

Ahora la Diócesis de Raleigh nos exige que realicemos pruebas i-Ready y Ark en línea. Para realizar esta prueba, los estudiantes deben tener Chromebooks con sistemas operativos actualizados. Nuestros Chromebook más antiguos no son capaces de realizar las actualizaciones necesarias. Debido a esto, las pruebas se han convertido en un evento aún más estresante de lo habitual. Hemos podido hacerlo funcionar, pero necesitamos comprar nuevos Chromebooks lo antes posible. Durante el resto del año escolar, nuestros esfuerzos de recaudación de fondos se centrarán en recaudar dinero para Chromebooks.

 

¡Nuestra primera recaudación de fondos comienza hoy! ¡Nos hemos asociado con Krispy Kreme para vender docenas digitales! ¡Por cada docena que vendamos, BSS recibirá $4.50!

 

https://www.groupraise.com/offer-campaigns/39754


¡Utilice este enlace para comprar certificados de regalo para una docena de donas! ¡Cada docena cuesta $12! Este es un descuento de $3 sobre el precio normal en la tienda. Una vez que compres en línea, ¡recibirás un cupón en tu correo electrónico! ¡Puedes comprarlos como regalo para amigos y colegas!

 

¡Por favor comparte con tu familia y amigos! Si desea donar dinero directamente a nuestra campaña de Chromebook, ¡háganoslo saber!

¡Gracias!

Middle School Girls Soccer Update


We have determined it would be in the best interest of our girls to have a girls' soccer club for the rest of this school year, with practice once a week on Wednesdays until 4:30 pm. These practices will focus on soccer skills and rules of play for games. The goal is to build up the girls’ soccer skills this year and next year so that they are prepared for interleague play in Spring 2025. We would also encourage families to sign their students up for recreational soccer programs over the summer and fall to continue to build and improve their soccer skills. Both the City of Burlington and the City of Mebane offer affordable recreational soccer programs throughout the year.  


Coach Jose will run the Wednesday practices, which will be open to all 4th through 8th graders interested in playing soccer for BSS and would prepare our students to be more competitive, skilled, and confident next year. The practices will begin on Wednesday, March 13. Girls should wear their PE uniform to school and must bring cleats, shinguards, and a water bottle to practice.


Thank you for your understanding. 


Please feel free to email me with any questions.


Tracy Miller

Co-Athletic Director

athletics@bssknights.org

Below is an important message from Our Head Track Coach Bridgette Clifton about practices and meets:


We are excited for our first track meet of the season. The Blue v. Gold Track Meet at Williams High School Track is this Sunday, March 17.  WE NEED VOLUNTEERS TO RUN THE MEET. Please signup HERE to volunteer to help with the track meet. We especially need ribbon writers and lane timers. Only volunteers are allowed down on the track and infield during the meet; all other spectators must stay in the bleachers. 

Runners must be there at 1:30pm to stretch and warmup.

Meet will start at 2:00pm and end around 4:30pm.

Runners can wear their yellow PE shirt to the blue/gold meet. We will have blue pinnies for the blue team.

Please contact Coach Bridgette with track meet questions (bridgettenicole519@gmail.com).


Recurring info:

All runners should wear their PE uniform on their practice day. Properly fitting athletic shoes are required to participate in practices and meets. All runners should bring a water bottle to practices. The season ends early this year so recommendations for additional drills and practices at home will be sent home with your runner at the first practice.


Practices

Parents, please park in the side parking lot at 515 Hillcrest and enter the back gate for pick up. There will be no car line pick up.

Elementary School: Tuesdays 3:00-4:00 pm at Hillcrest

Middle School: Fridays 3:00-4:15 pm at Hillcrest

Combined: Sundays 3:00-4:15 pm at Williams High School Track (not mandatory, but necessary to practice lane running and relays). Parents are encouraged to stay and walk or jog the outside lane of the

track.



Track Meets

We have 3 track meets. All runners are welcome to participate in the first 2 Meets. While participation is not mandatory, running in at least one of the two meets is necessary to help determine times for participation in the PECSAA meet.

  • Blue vs Gold (Sunday, March 17th ): This is a scrimmage meet between BSS runners. Will be held at Williams High School in place of a Sunday practice.
  • Dual Meet: This is typically against Our Lady of Grace Catholic School and will be held at Williams High School in place of a Sunday practice. Date TBD (tentatively 4/14)
  • PECSAA Track Meet (Sunday, April 28th ): Will be held at Bishop McGuiness in Kernersville.


PECSAA rules limit participation in the PECSAA Meet to only ONE (1) boy and ONE (1) girl in each grade per event, therefore please be aware that not everyone will be able to race in the PECSAA meet. Track is a team sport and we will choose the fastest runners for the events so that we can be competitive. All others are welcome to attend as part of the BSS Scream Team or as backups when we need subs, which happens every year. Event assignments will be given out the week before the PECSAA Meet.


Elementary Track Events:

1. 3 sprints: 50 meters, 100 meters, 200 meters

2. 4 x 100 meter co-ed relay

3. Broad Jump


Middle School Track Events:

1. 3 sprints: 50 meters, 100 meters, 200 meters

Questions and concerns can be emailed to Coach Bridgette at bridgettenicole519@gmail.com.

GOLF 2024


Practices will be at Alamance Country Club on Thursdays starting at 4:00pm with the first practice on 2/22/2024.

Practices will likely finish around 6:30pm contingent on daylight and weather. Golfers can be dropped off at the driving range located behind/to the right of the swimming pool at Alamance Country Club.

Per our agreement with Alamance we will have two coaches at all times to support and supervise.

It will be expected that the golfers follow instructions when on the range, putting green or golf courses so we can enjoy this opportunity to utilize ACC facilities.

 

Participation 

We are limited to the number of golfers we can facilitate at Alamance but our sign up seems to align with the 6-8 golfer cap.

BSS will have two successive tee times between 4:00 - 4:30 on Tuesdays or Thursdays – Typically Thursdays.

 

The practice tee will be available for four players at a time from ½ an hour prior to the first tee time through the start of the second tee time. Access to the putting green/short game area will be based on availability and should be used in groups of 4 players max per station area. 

 A coach must be with the team during the entirety of the practice time and will be responsible for checking the team in for times and confirming daily activities. 

Prayer Requests

Please pray for:


Please remember in your prayers, David, brother of Abby (1st and Lizzie, Class of 2021) for his health.


Please pray for Dagoberto Gonzalez, father of Matthew (2nd) who has back surgery due to a fall.


Please pray for Indiana Gonzalez (former employee of BSS), sister of Mrs. Gomez and Mrs. Rivera, as she recovers from two falls this week. 


Please keep in your prayers, Mr. Worley, husband of Mrs. Worley, for his health. 

Princial's Message

Corporate Sponsorship Opportunities for the 2023-2024 school year


We have new Corporate Sponsorship Opportunities for the 2023-2024 school year. We would love to help promote your business, while you support our school! 


Money raised during the 2022-2023 school year was used for several major and unexpected expenses. We are in the process of replacing our 26-year-old Fire Alarm System at the Main Campus. We also replaced and repaired flooring in several areas of the building. A few rooms also received new paint!


Due to increased enrollment, we purchased 100 new Chromebooks for our students. None of these things would have been possible without the support of our community!


CLICK HERE to Review Sponsorship Level


CLICK HERE to Pay/Donate Online


If you or someone you know owns a business and would like to partner with our school, contact us today! 


I look forward to working with you! Contact me with me any questions!
