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 2018/2019 school year and opening our 2019/2020 school year. We had many blessings last year and ask that you continue to pray that our school community continues to be blessed by the one, true, and holy Blessed Sacrament.
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.
- 2019 2020 Instructional Calendar
- Summer Reading Homework
- Summer Math Homework
- Back to School Activities Schedule
- General Uniform Information and School Supply List
- Uniform Store: Uniform Store Hours, Uniform Price List, Jacket, Sweater and Fleece Order Form
- After School Care (ASC) Information and Registration

In addition, I am asking that you please anticipate the following items, which will be distributed electronically to the email address you provided on your registration form:
- Homeroom Parent Interest Form
- New Family Orientation Reservation Form

Please accept our invitation to our Back-to-School Open House and Social on Monday, August 12, 2019. 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 will continue using Anne Marie’s as our lunch caterer for the 2019/2020 school year. As with last year, lunch orders must be placed by Thursday, at minimum, ahead of the scheduled week allowing Anne Marie’s to purchase necessary items.
On Wednesday, August 14, 2019, 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 2019/2020 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 Wednesday, August 14, 2019 at 6:00 p.m. followed by the Elementary and Intermediate Back-to-School Night on Tuesday, August 20, 2019 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 Thursday from 8:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. and will be closed on Fridays. We will resume regular hours beginning Wednesday, August 1, 2019.
I pray the Holy Family of Jesus, Mary, and Joseph continue to watch your family.
In Christ’s peace,
