The K-2 community prides itself on extending the faith through community prayer, building character by teaching to the whole student, and providing a developmentally appropriate academic programs that meets the needs of all students.

As a parochial Catholic school, we incorporate our faith into our daily routines. We build the K-2 students’ character by challenging our students to show Courtesy, Acceptance, Respect for Everyone each and everyday through programs such as our anti-bullying policies and community service. With the para-educator in each classroom we are able to better meet the needs of all students in small group settings.
Our curriculum guides our students through a hands-on manipulative based math program and a balanced literacy program.  After our informal comprehensive literacy assessments we are able to develop appropriate reading instruction.  We use a literature and phonetic based reading program in conjunction with Lucy Calkin’s Writer’s Workshop.  We initiated the Handwriting Without Tears program this year in K-2.  This is an Occupational Therapy based handwriting program that enables the child to develop small motor skills while learning to write through all facets of learning. Our Math program is developmentally appropriate focusing on the key math concepts.
Blessed Sacrament School develops the whole child through creative arts and physical education.  Our school offers Music, Art, Library, Science, and Physical Education. These programs provide students with the opportunity to develop into a well rounded individual.
