Dear BSS Community,

This Sunday, 1/27 begins Catholic Schools Week. Catholic schools across the country will showcase the excellence of Catholic education. Blessed Sacrament School’s expo will be held from 9:00-12:30 at Blessed Sacrament Church.  The CSW Mass will showcase our Rock Band, Chorus, ushers, and lectors. Students will need to be at the church by 10:20. Hope you can join to hear our students sing and the work done by our students.

Morning Drop-Off
Please remember if your child is late (7:55), you must come into the building to sign them in. You can’t just drop them off. This is a safety issue. Thank you for your cooperation.

Please review the enrollment timeline listed in the KC. Thanks!

We strongly encourage Pre Kindergarten families to apply for the North Carolina Opportunity Scholarship in addition to their FACTS application. 

The transition from Pre Kindergarten to Kindergarten is the one time an existing school family may apply and be considered for the North Carolina Opportunity Scholarship.   

Blessed Sacrament Tuition Assistance Application is open and accepting applications for new and returning students.

North Carolina Opportunity Scholarship Application opens by early February, 2019.
