Dear Community Friend,
Blessed Sacrament Catholic School is holding its first ever Southern Soiree on Friday, October 13th at the Charleston Yacht Club. We anticipate hosting 250 people from our local community. The Soiree will prove to be an excellent marketing opportunity to present your business to the local school community and church parish to show your support for the children and educators.
Our school opened its doors in September 1948 and has been a true landmark in the heart of West Ashley ever since. We emphasize our Catholic faith and uphold academic excellence through engaging the mind, challenging the body and enlightening the soul. We ask you to please consider a sponsorship opportunity to help us continue our mission.
All proceeds from your donation will directly benefit the children and educators of Blessed Sacrament Catholic School by providing introduction and implementations of a STEM program. Our goal is to initially introduce STEM into our elementary grades, K5-5th. Our program will encourage students to work through complex questions, investigate global issues, and develop solutions for challenges and real world problems while applying the rigors of science, technology, engineering and mathematics content to our existing curriculum. In reference to Technology enhancements, we want to meet one of our goals to our Technology Plan: to use iPads and Chromebooks as a means to engage student learning and empower achievement through student use of technology and to assess student learning and measure student learning performance. We are striving to shift from Teacher Centered to Student Centered Classrooms. We want to see improvements to the Kindergarten building, enhancements to the Music program and Arts/Computer programs such as a 3D printer, improvements to the school facility, and the Rosary Garden.
We have included a breakdown of the different sponsorship levels. Your prompt response is greatly appreciated. If you have any questions or need additional information please let me know. Thank you for supporting this great school and helping us achieve our goals. We look forward to hearing from you soon.
