Back to School

Dear Blessed Sacrament Families,

Greetings from Bulldog Country!  I hope you and your family have been able to enjoy the first weeks of summer and are enjoying quality time with one another.  The School Office is in the midst of closing out the school year and opening our 2020/2021 school year.

Throughout June, I will be updating this page with the following informational listed below.  This information will assist our families in preparing for our new school year.

In addition, I am asking that you please anticipate the following items:

  • Homeroom Parent Interest Form
  • New Family Orientation Reservation Form
  • Middle School Elective Sign-Up Form

Please accept our invitation to our Back-to-School Open House and Social on Thursday, August 13, 2020.  The Open House will be held from 5:00 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. and will provide parents and students the opportunity to meet their teacher(s) and drop off any school supplies alleviating heavy backpacks on the first day of school.  Once you have dropped off supplies, you are invited to the Parish Hall for a dessert social and fellowship. This will be a great opportunity to celebrate our Catholic Christian faith, gather and build community, and celebrate the beginning of another great school year while enjoying an end of summer treat and sweet.

Blessed Sacrament is in the process of selecting a new cafeteria provider for the 2020/2021 school year. More information will be distributed to parents when a decision has been made.

On Monday, August 17, 2020, the first day of the new school year, students will receive a packet of information that should be reviewed by every parent/guardian and student.  Items will include the 2020/2021 Parent-Student Policy Handbook Acknowledgement Form, Photography/Video Permission Form, Internet Usage Policy, Family Survey, Medication Permission Form, Family Emergency Card, Student Emergency Card, Student Insurance Application, and the BSS Jacket, Fleece Jacket and Sweater Order Form.  In addition, please take note that we dismiss at 12:30 p.m. on the first day of school.  Both lunch and after school care will be provided on the First Day of School.

Our Middle School Back-to-School Night will be held on Monday, August 17, 2020 at 6:00 p.m. followed by the Elementary and Intermediate Back-to-School Night on Tuesday, August 18, 2020 at 6:00 p.m.  These evenings are a great way to learn more about your child’s school, teacher, curriculum, and classroom routines.  Both evenings will begin with an information session in the Parish Banquet Hall.

Finally, I hope your summer season is filled with prayer, excitement, and activities.  If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact the School Office at (210) 824-3381.  The School Office will remain open Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.  We will be closed on Friday, July 3, 2020 in observance of Independence Day.  We will resume regular hours beginning Monday, August 3, 2020. 

I pray the Holy Family of Jesus, Mary, and Joseph continue to watch your family.

In Christ’s peace,

Michael Fierro

Welcome Back Bulldogs!  I hope you had an enjoyable summer and are ready to grow as we begin our 2023/2024 school year!

Our First Day of School will be on Monday, August 14, 2023.  We will have a 12:30 p.m. Dismissal with lunch and after school care being provided.  Please note that our First Day of School will be a Regular Uniform Day, not a Spirit Dress Day.

Also, we will have Mass this week on Tuesday for the Assumption of the Blessed Mother. The Regular Uniform may be worn as it is still a bit hot for shirts and ties!

Have a GREAT week!

Mr. Fierro
