At Blessed Sacrament School, we believe in nurturing the whole child through a holistic education built on five key pillars: spiritual growth, academic excellence, social responsibility, emotional well-being, and physical health. This unique approach, woven into our strong academics, creativity, and core values, empowers students to develop a lifelong love of learning and thrive in a diverse and interconnected world. 

Spiritual Growth

Blessed Sacrament School seamlessly blends Catholic faith with academic excellence. Our vibrant community lives Gospel values, fostering belonging and purpose. We actively contribute to the Church's mission, ensuring students grow in both knowledge and faith. Dedicated teachers guide them towards deeper understanding, while daily religion classes and everyday interactions create a supportive space for exploration, questions, and moral development. Blessed Sacrament offers more than education; it shapes hearts and minds for a lifetime.

Academic Excellence

Our academic program is designed to inspire every student’s imagination, cultivate their natural curiosity, and develop their resilience in the face of a challenge. All subject areas have been curriculum mapped and follow New York State Next Generation Standards. The result is an academic experience that attends to the interplay of every student’s social, emotional, intellectual, and physical intelligence. We ignite curiosity and empower every student to thrive through a thoughtfully designed curriculum. Our dedicated faculty uses proven programs, tailoring them to each student's unique needs to ensure success. Technology seamlessly blends into the learning experience, fostering academic excellence and creativity. From kindergarten to sixth grade, every student enjoys a personalized 1:1 Chromebook experience, and even our Tiny Eagles and Pre-K programs utilize iPads for engaging exploration. But learning extends beyond the traditional. Fine arts, encompassing music and art instruction, are deeply integrated into our curriculum. This strengthens core academic skills like critical thinking and collaboration and nurtures social and emotional well-being, preparing students for a fulfilling future.

Emotional Well Being

Social-emotional learning is developing self-awareness, self-control, and interpersonal skills vital for school, work, and life success. Blessed Sacrament created a comprehensive curriculum plan to assist students with developing these skills. 

Social Emotional Learning Team 
Our Social Emotional Learning Team is a dedicated, representative group of faculty and support staff whose task is to lead a coordinated approach and continuous improvement of school-wide social-emotional learning implementation. This team has quarterly assessments to ensure the needs of the students, faculty, and staff are supported.  

Think First Stay Safe Program
The Think First Stay Safe program offers a balanced perspective that preserves the innocence and optimism of childhood while arming children with personal safety strategies by teaching students the importance of treating themselves and others with kindness and respect, and behavioral expectations.  Boundaries are set, and how children recognize inappropriate and unsafe behaviors.

No Bullying Program 
This program for grades K-2, strives to create a haven for all students, where bullying is minimized and respect reigns. By equipping students and staff with the tools to identify and address bullying, we aim to foster a safe and inclusive environment where everyone can thrive.

In collaboration with the  McMahon Ryan Child Advocacy Center, this anti-bullying program is designed for students in grades 3-5. During classroom time, discussions occur about what bullying is and the many forms it can take (including “cyber-bullying”), who’s involved in bullying, and the positive actions students can take to prevent and eliminate bullying in their school. 

In collaboration with the  McMahon Ryan Child Advocacy Center, this presentation is offered to students in grades 4-6, focusing on what it means to be a responsible “digital citizen.” The program is designed to help young people understand that certain types of communication (strong language, hurtful messages, or inappropriate pictures of themselves or others) can have long-lasting consequences, ranging from social impacts to school disciplinary action to criminal charges.

Social Thinkers
The Social Thinkers program empowers students in grades PK- 1, to develop essential social skills. Through evidence-based strategies, the program fosters flexible thinking, effective problem-solving, and a deeper understanding of social cues. This translates into real-life benefits like stronger friendships, improved communication, and better emotional regulation.

Second Step Program
An evidence-based approach to building supportive communities for every child through social-emotional learning. Students acquire and apply knowledge, skills, and attitudes to develop healthy identities, manage emotions and achieve personal and collective goals, empathize with others, establish and maintain supportive relationships, and make responsible and caring decisions and choices.

High Five! 
In collaboration with the McMahon Ryan Advocacy Center, High Five! Is a unique, four-week child abuse prevention program, specifically designed to meet the needs of children in grades Pre-K through 2. Children are empowered to listen to their feelings and tell an adult if they feel uncomfortable or unsafe. In addition to working with the students on self-esteem and safety skills, High Five! works alongside teachers, school professionals, and parents to offer a comprehensive program and empower the community to prevent child abuse.

Social Responsibility

At Blessed Sacrament School, the seeds of faith, compassion, and social responsibility are sown early. We created a powerful learning environment that fosters the whole child by integrating character education into the curriculum and weaving it with social responsibility initiatives. We believe character education can prepare students for effectively taking on social responsibilities, while social responsibility initiatives can provide opportunities to practice and reinforce character traits.

E.A.G.L.E.S Pride Expectation
We have designed a program that provides Blessed Sacrament School with positive school-wide behavior expectations: Excellence, Acceptance, God-centered, Leadership, Empathy, and Safety.

Service Projects: Students actively participate in projects that benefit different organizations throughout our community

Responsibility Pledge 
Each day, students recite our “Personal Responsibility Pledge,” which is a daily reminder of being accountable for actions and how actions affect others.

PACE Program
The Program for Achieving Character Education (PACE) is a monthly, faith-based program designed to inspire and guide children's character development. Each month, the program explores a different core value: perseverance, friendship, self-discipline, loyalty, trust, compassion, courage, responsibility, work, and honesty.

Liturgical Service: Students participate in service projects related to the liturgical calendar by making pumpkin pies for the Rescue Mission for the annual Thanksgiving Dinner .

Global Awareness: Students raise money for international charity  such as Rice Bowls or Mite Boxes during Lent,

Physical Health

We understand that fostering healthy minds goes hand-in-hand with fostering healthy bodies. This is why we prioritize initiatives that nurture both physical and intellectual growth in our students. Blessed Sacrament emphasizes healthy eating habits and physical activity through education and practical experiences. By learning about the importance of balanced nutrition and participating in engaging activities, students are empowered to make informed choices that contribute to their well-being.  Furthermore, we create inclusive learning environments that promote physical activity for all abilities. This ensures that every student can participate and experience the benefits of movement. We recognize the impact of physical growth on learning, specifically in areas like fine motor skills crucial for early literacy and gross motor skills that enhance brain function and cognitive development. Additionally, maintaining good physical health through proper sleep and nutrition supports focus, concentration, and overall learning ability. By integrating these various aspects, we strive to create a school environment that cultivates healthy, well-rounded individuals ready to reach their full physical and intellectual potential.
