Blessed Sacrament School Photo #1 - “Blessed Sacrament has developed a model comprehensive Character Education (CE) program,” said Penny Keith, Community of Caring program coordinator, in a news release. “Their Holocaust unit, art project and Alzheimer’s Buddy project all reflect a commitment from everyone associated with Blessed Sacrament — students, staff and parents alike — toward an inclusionary atmosphere.” The program, sponsored by the Community of Caring and the Character Education Partnership (CEP), recognizes schools for their accomplishments in character education based on 11 core principles. Those principles include regular assessment of learning environments, providing a challenging curriculum, working with families and the community, and being proactive in building students’ character and self-motivation.

Blessed Sacrament School Photo #2 - At Blessed Sacrament, the Interfaith Meditation Garden is used for prayer, study, sketching, thinking and resting. This garden is used by students as well as community members, and offers a stunning view of the Wasatch Mountains.
Blessed Sacrament School Photo #3 - Each year, Blessed Sacrament School teacher Kristi Oritt encourages her English and literature students to enter writing contests. Being published, she said, can be a huge confidence boost. “I’ve never required it because I feel like it makes it seem like homework,” Oritt said. “If they do it on their own, then I think it gives them more satisfaction to know they made the effort to do it and go for it, and it’ll encourage them to try again.” Three of Oritt’s students gave publication a shot, and all were rewarded.
Blessed Sacrament School Photo #4 - There are at least four ways the arts can affect learning in other academic areas: Direct Instruction, Integration, Thinking Skills, Dispositions and Attitudes. The Center for Science and the Arts allows for a wonderful Art Studio, and the hallway Gallery allows all children to feel a sense of pride in their artistic achievements. Such activities are sources of a sense of accomplishment and a self-image of competency, both important factors in intrinsic motivation.
Blessed Sacrament School Photo #5 - Blessed Sacrament School has a strong focus on science for all grades. State-of-the-art technology is used throughout the school, particularly in the new Center for Science and the Arts.
Blessed Sacrament School Photo #6 - D.A.R.E. is a police officer-led series of classroom lessons that teaches children from kindergarten through 12th grade how to resist peer pressure and live productive drug and violence-free lives. Here Officer West instructs the PreK and K classes!
Blessed Sacrament School Photo #7 - Winner of a 2011 Innovative Practice Award from the Eunice Kennedy Shriver Community of Caring, this tree was created by all of the students under the direction and guidance of our Art Teacher Mrs. Mullholand.
Blessed Sacrament School Photo #8 - High tea was the flavor of the day for eighth graders at Blessed Sacrament Catholic School on Dec. 14. Just as in days of yore when the British working class enjoyed their afternoon tea, eighth graders hosted an affair of their own, complete with china cups and saucers, silver serving tray, savory treats, and delicious lemonade! The Tea Party was the idea of Kristi Oritt, middle school language arts teacher. The Tea Party was the culminating experience of the Blessed Sacrament cross-curriculum unit.
Blessed Sacrament School Photo #9 - Other extracurricular sport activities children may get involved with include golf, skiing, snowboarding, basketball, volleyball, karate, soccer, football and more! Go, Bobcats!
