World Kindness Day
"World Kindness Day is a global day that promotes the importance of being kind to each other, to yourself, and to the world. This day, celebrated on November 13 of each year, has the purpose is to help everyone understand that compassion for others is what binds us all together. This understanding has the power to bridge the gap between nations."
"Kindness is the single most powerful thing that we can teach our children."

We’re celebrating Kindness Week at BSS! Each morning Student Council is reading from the book “Kindness Starts With You” by Jacquelyn Stagg.

This book is about a student named Maddy and her day at school. Students have been learning how easy it can be to spread kindness!--from taking turns on the swing to including everyone in the game - this storybook shows that no act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted!

Included in the book is a Weekly Kindness Challenge to help encourage your student to: Say Sorry, Be Polite, Take Turns, Be a Helping Hand, Include Others, and Show Respect.

The Student Council VP Avery L. (7) picked a snippet from the kindness snippet jar and challenging our students and staff with an act of kindness found in this book.

Watch this video to hear last Wednesday’s announcements! You’ll also see a few of the words of kindness and motivation that fill up our school! 💛💙
Kindness Bingo! 

This morning, each class played Kindness Bingo! We have a winner from each class! The students had a lot of fun playing!

Being Kind to Our Neighbors in Need

Since next Monday, November 16 is our church's food pantry distribution day, our students, parents and staff participated by donating food items for Thanksgiving. Students donated things like oranges, apples, yams, stuffing, mac and cheese, rice, canned vegetables (other than green beans and corn) other items: spaghetti, tuna fish (packed in water), canned fruit (in own juices).

Our 6th, 7th & 8th graders delivered the food donated by students, faculty and parents to the food pantry this afternoon! Thank you for your service and thank you to all of those who were able to donate food!
Father Paul, Mrs. Imrick and Mr. Quinn talked to our students about the food pantry, its history, food insecurity in our community and the importance to share with others! Our students asked a lot of questions about how the food pantry is run, most requested food items and about how many families the food pantry serves. Find more information about Blessed Sacrament Church's Little Portion Food Pantry on our Community Announcements section.

Superintendent Ms. Lytia Reese Comes to BSS!

Ms. Lytia Reese visited BSS last Monday, November 9th and she spent the whole day with us!

Ms. Reese visited some of our classrooms and talked to our teachers and staff. Mrs. Gomez gave her a tour of our school!

Here you can see Ms. Reese in Mrs. Schmitt's 5th grade Spanish class:
Ms. Reese gave the following letter to our school:

"Dear Blessed Sacrament Catholic School Community,
 
Thank you all for your warm welcome and care during my visit! The genuine hospitality extended to me by each of you is very appreciated.  

It was a pleasure to meet each of you, to speak with the students, and to observe great teaching! I commend the faculty and staff for meeting the needs of both in-person and remote learners, and I am honored to have had the opportunity to see first-hand the love and care you give to your students and each other. I was extremely impressed to hear about the contributions the staff and student have made to the Burlington community. Because of you, students are classroom confident, academically engaged, and are developing servant’s hearts! Please extend my sincerest thanks to the students for cheerfully entertaining my questions and authentically engaging with me during my visit (especially my friends in Pre-K)! 

Know that I am grateful for the many sacrifices all staff members are making to ensure our students’ spiritual, social, emotional, health and academic needs are met! It is clear that everyone in this community is doing their part to make school a safe, healthy, and loving environment, for both students and staff. I know it has been difficult, and your hard-work and dedication to your vocation has not gone unnoticed. God bless you for your commitment! 
 
Finally, I would like to especially thank you, Mrs. Gomez, for your love of and dedication to Blessed Sacrament. The Diocese of Raleigh greatly appreciates your service and leadership. Thank you for everything you do!
 
I will continue to hold the school and faith communities of Blessed Sacrament in my heart and in my prayers. I look forward to my next visit!
 
In Christ,
Lytia Reese
Superintendent of Schools
Catholic Diocese of Raleigh

Duck for President

Mrs. Byerly's Kindergarten class read the book "Duck for President," written by Doreen Cronin. The books starts with: "My fellow Americans:
It is our pleasure, our honor, our duty as citizens to present to you Duck for President. Here is a duck who began in a humble pond. Who worked his way to farmer. To governor. And now, perhaps, to the highest office in the land.
Some say, if he walks like a duck and talks like a duck, he is a duck.
We say, if he walks like a duck and talks like a duck, he will be the next president of the United States of America.
Thank you for your vote."

The students were tasked to write a letter to the Duck whether they thought the it would be a good president. Here are their letters:
Sharing is Caring - Preschool Studies Healthy Choices

Teacher's Spotlight
Since we are unable to do many activities inside the school where parents can meet and get to know Blessed Sacrament School's teachers or staff members, we are going to bring them to you through our Teacher's Spotlight Section here!

Each week, we will feature a teacher or staff member and they will share a little about themselves. This week, we will have Mrs. Hipps!

Mrs. Hipps currently teaches Traditional 7th and 8th grade math and serves as an assistant for 7th and 8th grade Science classes.
Here is a note from Mrs. Hipps:

Hello, my name is Kristin Attarian Hipps. This is my fourth year as one of two Middle School Math teachers at BSS. I currently teach Traditional 7 Math, Traditional 8 Math, and Math I (Algebra). 

I am an "implant" to NC having lived my first few years in NJ but consider NC my home since I have spent a majority of my life in this great state. After graduating from Cary High School, I attended Elon College (University) on a NC Teaching Fellows Scholarship and pursued my BA in Elementary Education. While at Elon, I participated in many activities including playing goalkeeper for the women's soccer team my Freshman Year. Elon also afforded me the opportunity to travel to London and intern at a primary school in Barking, England. Above all else, I met my wonderful husband of twenty-one years, Tim Hipps II, while attending Elon.

I taught fourth grade for five years, beginning at W.M. Irvin Elementary in Concord, NC and ending at AO Elementary in Elon before welcoming our first son, Tigue, into the world. Tigue was joined by his younger brother, Eamon, three and a half years later and I stayed at home with them until Eamon started PreK. I then enjoyed a brief stint as a Play School Assistant at First Presbyterian, worked in insurance, and finally landed at BSS where I renewed my K-6 license and earned my Middle School Math license. 

If I am not teaching, being a taxi for my children, or watching their various activities, you can find me at home enjoying time with my family, on a run or working out, binging Netflix (lets be honest), or curled up with a good book.

Principal's Message
Dear BSS Families,

This week, was kindness week. Even though we should be kind every day, the BSS students focused on treating everyone with smiles, friendly compliments, and not complaining. They did a great job! Today, as the MS students took the bags of donated food, it was evident of the kindness of each family. Thank you always for your generosity.

Update on COVID-19

We have been doing a great job on keeping us healthy. In the past week, the numbers have started to spike, once again. As the holidays get closer and families start planning, this new directive goes into effect this week:

As there continues to be a spike of Covid-19 across the country, please be very conscientious to your vacation and holiday plans. Effective immediately, any families that travel to hot spot zones, uses airplanes as a mode of transportation, are out of school for more than 4 days due to vacation plans/family events, or find themselves in a large gathering event where social distancing/masks is minimal, then the student needs to have a COVID-19 test before returning back to school and these results must be presented to the school. We ask for your honesty and cooperation. BSS needs to keep ensuring the health and safety of the school community.

**EN ESPAÑOL**
Hemos estado haciendo un gran trabajo para mantenernos saludables. En la última semana, el número de contagios por el Covid-19 han comenzado a aumentar otra vez. A medida que se acercan las vacaciones y las familias comienzan a planificar, esta nueva directiva entra en vigencia a partir de esta semana:

Como siguen incrementando los contagios de Covid-19 en todo el país, sea muy consciente de sus viajes y planes de vacaciones. Con vigencia inmediata, cualquier familia que viaje a zonas de alto contagio, use aviones como medio de transporte, esté fuera de la escuela por más de 4 días debido a planes de vacaciones / eventos familiares, o se encuentre en un gran evento de reunión donde el distanciamiento social / máscaras es mínimo, entonces el estudiante debe tener una prueba COVID-19 antes de regresar a la escuela y estos resultados deben presentarse a la escuela. Les pedimos su honestidad y cooperación. BSS debe poder seguir garantizando la salud y la seguridad de la comunidad escolar.
