FACTS TUITION DEADLINE TOMORROW!!!
Most Blessed Sacrament is once again using the FACTS Payment Program. You will soon be receiving information from FACTS Tuition about the re-enrollment process. Your original agreement authorizes FACTS to roll over your information from one year to the next. Please be aware that no payments or fees will come out of your account until after the tuition rates have been added. You will need to contact FACTS  if you wish to change your method of payment, your plan name and/or your address. If you want to make any changes to whether you pay quarterly, monthly or in full, please return the FACTS document to the school As Soon As Possible. We will be adding the tuition rates to each account after June 1, which will complete the process. Changes to enrollment status will be made at that time. 

ALL FAMILIES MUST BE ENROLLED IN FACTS BEFORE JUNE 1! In order for payments to run 10 months, FACTS must have the information a full month in advance.


Should you select the one time payment plan and DO NOT make the payment by September 1st, MBS will automatically change your plan to a 10 month schedule and you will be charged a fee.

THANK YOU, MRS. EDMUNDS  
As you may be aware, Mrs. Edmunds has submitted her resignation as of June 15, 2018.  We are very grateful to Mrs. Edmunds for all of her energy and commitment that she has tirelessly given to her duties as Director of Admissions and Advancement at our school.  Lisa has definitely made an impact on our school environment in many, many ways and she will be very much missed.  We wish Lisa and her family well as they transition their daughter, Hallie, into college and we look forward to Lisa remaining a part of our school community.
 
Any parent who holds the desired credentials (see link below) and has an interest in learning more about the position of Director of Admissions and Advancement should contact Mr. Record before June 6, 2018.
 
HEALTH SUITE NEWS 
If you are taking your child to their primary care providers for physicals, please remember any student entering in kindergarten or 4th grade next year will need a physical from the doctor's office. The physical may have been conducted as early as October 2017 of last year to count for your physical for the 2018-2019 school year. If you send in the completed physical form, it will be filed for next year.
 
If your child has any new immunizations, please send verification to the nurse as soon as possible. There are New Immunization Requirements for students entering 7th grade. They need Tdap (single dose) and Meningococcal (single dose). The immunizations required for students entering kindergarten are DtaP (4 doses), Polio (3 doses), MMR (2 doses), Varicella (2 doses) and Hep B (3 doses). These immunization requirements are from the Maryland Department of Health and Mental Hygiene.
 
The end of the year is HERE. Parents must pick up any unused medication at the end of the school year. Medication that is not collected by the parent will be discarded. If you have any questions, please contact the school nurse @ 410-208-1600.

SPECIAL HOUR OF PRAYER BEFORE THE BLESSED SACRAMENT
FOR THE PEACEFUL OUTCOME OF THE MEETING
BETWEEN PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP AND NORTH KOREAN LEADER KIM JONG-UN
 
MONDAY, JUNE 11, AT 7 PM, IN THE ST. JUDE PARISH CHAPEL
 
"Peace on Earth" hangs much in the balance in our time - especially among near and far eastern nations, like North Korea, whose ominously emergent nuclear capabilities and militant antagonisms threaten humanity with cataclysmic global catastrophe.
 
This historic meeting of President Donald Trump and Kim Jong-un, therefore, can prove decisive for the containment of such hostile and deadly armament and for the greater assurance of security and peace for all humanity.
 
The meeting of the leaders is planned for Tuesday, June 12, in Singapore, whose time zone is twelve hours ahead of ours. We will, therefore, hold our vigil on Monday, June 11, at 7 pm, our time, which would adequately anticipate the meeting in Singapore whether it occurs earlier or later on Tuesday, Singapore time - while taking place at a time here in Lewes convenient for participants.
 
In earnest response to Our Lady of Fatima's ardent plea for prayer, especially the Rosary, "to obtain peace for the world and the end of war," please plan to spend an hour in supplication, along with other prayerful brethren, before the Real Eucharistic Presence of Jesus - Lord of Heaven and Earth - to beseech His sovereign intervention that there be "on earth, peace to men of good will."
 
    
Vision Statement  
 

Most Blessed Sacrament Catholic School provides rigorous and technologically relevant instruction that is intentionally integrated with Catholic identity.  Together, as Pastors, administrators, teachers and parents, we nurture the development of the mind, the body, and the soul, in each of our students.  Our students are able to make sound decisions based upon the teachings of Jesus Christ and modeled upon the lives of the saints.  As a faith and learning community, we teach students a passion for the truth and a love for discovery and knowledge. Our students are prepared to relate their Catholic faith to their culture and actively live their faith as members of the greater community.
