ELEMENTARY SCHOOL Our Elementary Program is designed to meet the unique needs of students in Grade 1 through Grade 5. At Blessed Sacrament School, our faculty and staff strive to Treat each student as a child of God with unique strengths and challenges. Build positive relationships with families recognizing that parents are the first educators and most important models for their children. Provide peaceful environments for children to master basic skills, collaborate, and enjoy learning. Create structured classroom environments where students feel appreciated for their individual gifts and talents and supported in sharing them. Use best practices and the latest instructional technology to plan and implement lessons to meet student needs. Promote the cognitive, social-emotional, physical development of children through lessons that address varied learning styles. Celebrate the arts with age-appropriate art and music courses that reflect cultural diversity. Communicate often with parents about their child’s progress, needs, and growth. Link to the greater Blessed Sacrament School, Church, and world community through attendance at daily assembly, monthly Masses, and participation in community service. Connect classroom learning to student experiences beyond school life.
