Daily Announcements

BSCS IS LOOKING FOR GIRLS (5TH, 6TH, 7TH, 8TH GRADES) TO PLAY MIDDLE SCHOOL VOLLEYBALL! Please email Coach Amy Kissell (amy@callilesbiscuits.com) or Coach Sherri Fitzpatrick (sfitz2020@gmail.com)!  The deadline to sign-up is August 7th!  


DID YOU KNOW THAT TUITION CAN BE PAID THROUGH ONLINE BANKING?
Many families take advantage of this option, and the payments are never late!
Here's how!
Vendor: Blessed Sacrament Catholic School (or BSCS)
Account #:  What is being paid - Tuition or Extended Day
Memo: Student's name

THE SCHOOL SUPPLY LISTS ARE IN "RESOURCES."  JUST IN THE KNICK OF TIME FOR THE SCHOOL SUPPLY "SC NO SALES TAX WEEKEND" (AUGUST 7-9).  Some stores - Office Depot, Staples, and Target - offer rebates to the school for your supply purchases.  If you shop at any of these schools, please mention "BSCS"!

RISING 4TH GRADERS -  HAVE YOU NOTICED THAT THE 2009 PENNY IS HARD TO FIND?  IF YOU CANNOT FIND ANY PENNY IN THE PARTICULAR YEAR, JUST DRAW OR PASTE A PICTURE OF THE PENNY FOR THAT YEAR TO USE ON YOUR TIMELINE.
Inquiring Minds Want to Know ... Why is the 2009 penny so hard to find?  2009 marked the 100th year of the Lincoln cent (and the 200th anniversary of Abraham Lincoln's birth).  It was issued with four different "backs" to commemorate his life and distributed at different times throughout 2009.  Because of this, the 2009 Lincoln penny is a collector coin!

"SHOPPING" HOURS: 9AM-12 NOON UNTIL AUGUST 7TH

PLEASE REMEMBER

If other arrangements for payments are needed,
please contact Mrs. McHugh
(lmchugh@scbss.org - 766-2128).  

BSCS CALENDAR CHANGE!  NO OPEN HOUSE ON SEPTEMBER 2ND!
We welcome Mrs. Katharine Murphy as our new principal.  Since Mrs. Murphy will arrive in Charleston just prior to the start of school, the Open House for parents will be delayed until later in September!  

Effective July 6th, THE SCHOOL OFFICE WILL BE OPEN FROM 7:30 A.M. TO 12:30 P.M.  Regular office hours will resume in August.

SCHOOL AND PE UNIFORMS!
The link and address for Educational Outfitters is in the School Resources tab.  It always seems reasonable to wait to purchase school uniforms - just in case of a "growth spurt" - but please remember that not all items may be available and some may have to be ordered.  Please keep the possibility of "out-of-stock" items in mind as you plan your summer purchases!


KEEP IN "TIME" WITH YOUR MATH SKILLS!
Please remember that BSCS students are required to practice their math skills on the IXL Math Program. Each week, rising 2nd and 3rd grades need to practice 30 minutes each week; rising 4th and 5th graders need to complete 45 minutes each week; rising 6th-8th graders need to complete 1 hour each week!  
THIS IS THE SUMMER MATH REQUIREMENT FOR RETURNING STUDENTS.  
(New BSCS students do not have a summer math requirement.)
