The Bishop Visits BSS!

This morning, Friday, January 26th, Bishop Luis Rafael Zarama, visited our school during our weekly Friday mass at 8:30 am to help us kick off our Catholic Schools Week celebrations!


Bishop Luis Zarama talked to our students about the importance of being themselves. He was very impressed with our readers, our cantors, and the students who helped with the music and the altar. Great job, Knights!💙💛


Right after mass, Bishop Luis Zarama visited the middle school campus, he toured the students' classrooms, and then our students, teachers, and staff had an opportunity to have lunch together with him. What a blessed day!

Competition Cheer 2023-24


UPDATE 01/07/2024:

Dear Cheer Parents,


       Shamrock is rapidly approaching, and the girls are working very hard to be ready. We have experienced some challenges this year with our practice schedule and injuries. Starting tomorrow Monday, January 8, we are going to extend practice by 30 minutes, so we will be in the gym from 3:30-5:00.  We are hoping that doing this will keep us from having to have extra practices. We understand that this might not be convenient for everyone, but this is, unfortunately, necessary for the girls to be ready to compete. We are going to be flexible as we know this is coming to you with short notice, but PLEASE, if at all possible, we need your cheerleader to be at practice. At this point, it truly impacts the whole team when one person is missing. If this is simply not an option for you, please let us know.


Additionally, there is an opportunity for the cheerleaders to compete in the Scott Cheer Classic on Feb 24  at 1:00 at IHM (Immaculate Heart Of Mary Catholic School-4145 JOHNSON ST HIGH POINT, NC 27265)

Please let us know ASAP if your cheerleader is available on that date and able to come to the competition by clicking HERE and filling out a short Google form.


Thank you so much for your flexibility and your support!

Kelly Spradlin and Elizabeth Tichy

Enrollment for the 2024-2025 school year for returning families will begin on December 18, 2023. All existing families who have not requested financial aid in the past will start to receive an enrollment contract via DocuSign. Space is very limited for some grades and priority will be given to all returning families. Please do not delay in signing a contract once you receive it to secure a spot for your child. After signing, the system will ask you to pay the $265.00 enrollment fee. Review the letter above for deadlines. You will receive an email from FACTS once Mr. Rico sets up your automatic tuition payment drafts if you choose to pay via this option.


If your family is going to apply for the NC Opportunity Scholarship, and your family is a recipient once the NCSEAA notifies families in April 2024, PLEASE let Mr. Rico know so that he can adjust your tuition with the correct award amount (scroll down for more info).

  • Copy of the student's birth certificate
  • Copy of the student's immunization records
  • If the family is Catholic, a copy of the student's certificate of baptism.
  • Submit an application, if K-8 APPLY HERE, if a Little Knight, APPLY HERE.

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!

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!

Box Tops For Education

No more clipping. No more sending Box Tops to school. All you need is your phone. Download the ALL-NEW Box Tops app, shop as you normally would, then simply scan your store receipts to find participating products. The app will automatically credit Blessed Sacrament School's Box Tops earnings online. Click here for a video of how it works.

Twice a year, your school will receive a check and can use that cash to buy whatever it needs! If you see this label, use the new Box Tops app to scan your receipt. Box Tops are still worth 10¢ each for your school. CLICK HERE

Link your Lowes Card

With Cart to Class, Lowes Foods will give up to a quarter of a million dollars to local schools this year. To participate, just enroll Blessed Sacrament School on your Fresh Rewards card, and start earning for our school. Click Here
Link your Harris Teeter VIC Card

When you shop Harris Teeter brands, a percentage of your purchase is donated to Blessed Sacrament School if your VIC card is linked.
You link your card online (CLICK HERE), or you can ask your cashier to link your VIC card by providing our TIE code 1704.
