 Preparing for the upcoming school year

We hope that all of our Blessed Sacrament School families, teachers, and staff are enjoying the warmer weather ahead! Here at BSS, we are working hard to get our buildings ready for the 2024-2025 school year. Just to give you some updates, this summer we are replacing all of the windows in our middle school building, revamping both of our parking lots, and we will be providing most of the school supplies for your children this year(the school supply list will be ready next week, so check the parent page for an update later)! We are also happy to announce that the Little Portion Food Pantry will relocate to the back of the 328 W Davis St, Burlington, NC building, their original location before the pandemic began. This will alleviate traffic during middle school dismissal.


We would also like to welcome all of our new enrolling families whose children will start at Blessed Sacrament School this Fall!


Also, note that our 5th graders will be taking classes at the Main Campus and they will be wearing middle school uniforms. Please see below for important documents and dates as we prepare for the upcoming school year. If you have any questions, please send us an email at admissions@bssknights.org or call us at the school office at 336-570-0019. Our school office is open this summer for parents who need to meet with our principal or make payments from Monday through Thursday, from 9 am - 1 pm.

BLESSED SACRAMENT SCHOOL

BOYS SOCCER SKILLS AND DRILLS 2024

 

Coach Aleem will hold soccer skills and drills practices on Tuesdays and Thursdays beginning June 18 through July 11 for rising 5th through 8th-grade boys. The sessions will run from 12:00-2:00 pm on the back field at the main school campus at 515 Hillcrest Avenue. There will be no skills and drills session on July 4th.  

 

Coach Aleem encourages all young men in 5th-8th grade who are wanting to tryout for the team to attend these sessions in preparation for tryouts. Please keep in mind that our Varsity soccer team is extremely competitive. Last year we had over 40 young men tryout and approximately 20 players were invited to join the team.  Tryouts will be in mid-August and more details will be sent out about tryouts at a later date.

 

To attend skills and drills, you MUST add your student’s name, grade, emergency contact, and phone number HERE so BSS has a contact in case of an emergency or injury during skills and drills.  All boys MUST bring cleats, shin guards, and a refillable water bottle to participate. Please bring a soccer ball if you have one. BSS will have a limited amount of soccer balls available for skills and drills.


UPDATE this week: MS Soccer Skills and Drills Location and Time Change for 6/25 and 6/27


Due to the high temperatures this week, Coach Aleem has moved MS Boys Soccer Skills and Drills to 4:15pm-5:30pm at the City Gate Dream Center, 1423 N Church St, Burlington, NC 27217 on Tuesday and Thursday. Please wear running shoes/sneakers; NO cleats on the indoor field. Please park and enter at the rear of the building. Remember to bring shinguards and a water bottle. The skills and drills are open to all 5th-8th grade boys. NO skills and drills July 2 or July 4.

ESCUELA BLESSED SACRAMENT

HABILIDADES Y EJERCICIOS DE FÚTBOL PARA NIÑOS 2024

 

El entrenador Aleem llevará a cabo prácticas de ejercicios y habilidades de fútbol los martes y jueves desde el 18 de junio hasta el 11 de julio para varones que van entrando del quinto a octavo grado.  Las sesiones se llevarán a cabo de 12:00 a 2:00 p. m. en el campo trasero del campus principal de la escuela en 515 Hillcrest Avenue. No habrá sesión de habilidades ni ejercicios el 4 de julio.  

 

El entrenador Aleem anima a todos los jóvenes de 5º a 8º grado que quieran hacer pruebas para el equipo a asistir a estas sesiones en preparación para las pruebas (tryouts). Tenga en cuenta que nuestro equipo de fútbol es extremadamente competitivo. El año pasado tuvimos más de 40 pruebas (tryouts) de varones y aproximadamente 20 jugadores fueron invitados a unirse al equipo. Las pruebas (tryouts) se realizarán a mediados de agosto y se enviarán más detalles sobre las pruebas en una fecha posterior.

 

Para asistir a habilidades y simulacros (cascaritas), DEBE agregar el nombre, el grado, el contacto de emergencia y el número de teléfono de su estudiante AQUÍ para que BSS tenga un contacto en caso de una emergencia o lesión durante las habilidades y simulacros.  Todos los niños DEBEN traer zapatos (tacos), espinilleras y una botella de agua recargable para participar. Por favor traiga un balón de fútbol si tiene uno. BSS tendrá una cantidad limitada de balones de fútbol disponibles para habilidades y ejercicios.


ACTUALIZACIÓN esta semana: Cambio de ubicación y horario de habilidades y ejercicios de MS Soccer para el 25/6 y el 27/6


Debido a las altas temperaturas de esta semana, el entrenador Aleem ha trasladado los ejercicios y habilidades de fútbol masculino de MS de 4:15 p. m. a 5:30 p. m. en el City Gate Dream Center, 1423 N Church St, Burlington, NC 27217 los martes y jueves. Por favor use zapatos para correr/zapatillas de deporte; NO se permiten tacos en el campo interior. Estacione y entre por la parte trasera del edificio. Recuerda traer espinilleras y botella de agua. Las habilidades y ejercicios están abiertos a todos los niños de 5º a 8º grado. NO habrá habilidades ni ejercicios el 2 o 4 de julio.

Middle School Boys Volleyball Opportunities

Area High School Boys Teams
I also want to spread the word that many area high school teams have started boys programs as spring sports. There were over 100 high schools in NC with boys volleyball this year and it is on track to become a sanctioned varsity sport in the next few years. This past season West Forsyth, East Forsyth, Reagan, Northwest Guilford, Northern Guilford, Page, Tri City Academy, and Lexington all had boys teams and we expect several more schools to start teams next year!
If you have questions about boys volleyball in our area, please get in touch.
Best,
