Do you have a tennis racquet gathering cobwebs in your garage? Do you know someone who does? If we can get a racquet for everyone in PE class it would be greatly beneficial.

Teacher & Staff Spotlight

This school year has brought many changes to Blessed Sacrament School. For the first time in over a decade, we have several double classes and we are blessed to be able to hire more teachers. We want our school community to get to know our teachers and staff better, so we have chosen to bring back our Teacher & Staff Spotlight. Every week we will feature a teacher or staff member with their short bio and interesting facts about them. This week we are introducing our 6th-grade Homeroom Teacher of the Falcons Team, 5th & 6th-Grade Math Teacher, and a parent of our school, Mr. Josh Hill!!

My name is Josh Hill. I am the 5th and 6th grade math teacher and the 5th grade science teacher at Blessed Sacrament School. I have been working for the school since 2019 when I was hired to work as a substitute teacher. I worked in retail management for about 8 years before I decided to become a teacher. I hold degrees in Business Administration, Economics, and most recently Education. I received my Degree from UNCG this past May. Blessed Sacrament School is the reason why I decided to become a teacher. Working with these amazing educators here inspired me to go back to school and make a career change. Plus, Blessed Sacrament School has the best students anywhere. I grew up here in North Carolina and have lived in the Greensboro/Burlington area since I was 11 years old. I have three children, Elizabeth (AlumnKnight), Abby (2), and David (PreK), who starting in January will either be attending or will have attended this amazing school. My wife, Jennifer, and I live here in Burlington with our three children.

Fun Facts about Mr. Hill:

Birthday: November 10th

My favorite places to eat: Red Bowl, Sheetz, Biscuitville, Chic-fil-a

My favorite place to get coffee: Salvation

My coffee order is: 2 cream, 2 sugar

My favorite thing for breakfast: Bacon, egg and cheese sandwich

I love to shop at: Amazon, Target, Walmart

My favorite colors are: Burgundy, Navy Blue

My favorite sports team is: Steelers, Panthers

My favorite candy/snack is: Reeses, Hersheys

My favorite drink is: Pepsi

T-shirt size: 3xlt

monogram (first, middle, last) Joshua A Hill

Hobbies: Reading, Gaming, Chess, Puzzles

Other Information About Mr. Hill:

from Denise Marie Flaherty Memorial Foundation

"NC Community, meet your 2nd event beneficiary, 4 year old David Hill! In March of this year, he was diagnosed with high-risk B-cell Leukemia. Over the last 4 months, this sweet boy has needed 13 blood/platelet transfusions, has spent 40 days hospitalized, and spent 15 days at the clinic at UNC-Chapel Hill’s cancer hospital. His Mom, Jennifer, unfortunately, has had to quit her job to be his full-time caregiver. They need your support!

Re-occurring Information

Lost & Found

Lost items are already starting to accumulate in both buildings. Last year the amount of items in the Lost & Found at the end of the year was overwhelming! We do not have the space to keep these items for long periods of time. This year, we will be donating/purging items that aren't labeled every Friday!

PLEASE label all items! We will make every effort to return lost items to their owners. If they are not labeled, they will be placed in the Lost & Found. On Friday afternoons, clothing and jackets will be donated to the Swap Shop. Water bottles, lunch boxes, and all other items will be thrown away. 

Mabel's Labels are a great way to help us return your children's lost items!

You are welcome to come inside to look in the Lost & Found anytime! 

Thank you for understanding!

Objetos perdidos y encontrados

Los objetos perdidos ya están empezando a acumularse en ambos edificios. ¡El año pasado la cantidad de artículos perdidos y encontrados al final del año fue abrumadora! No tenemos espacio para guardar estos artículos durante largos períodos de tiempo. ¡Este año, donaremos/eliminaremos artículos que no estén etiquetados todos los viernes!

¡POR FAVOR etiquete todos los artículos! Haremos todo lo posible para devolver los artículos perdidos a sus dueños. Si no están etiquetados, se colocarán en el área de objetos perdidos. Los viernes por la tarde se donará ropa y chaquetas a la Swap Shop. Se desecharán las botellas de agua, loncheras y todos los demás artículos.

¡Las etiquetas de Mabel son una excelente manera de ayudarnos a devolver los artículos perdidos de sus hijos!

¡Puedes entrar para buscar objetos perdidos y encontrados en cualquier momento!

¡Gracias por entender!
