We had an All School Mass this morning to celebrate our successful Walk in Sisters' Shoes Campaign and to present a "check" to Mr. Voboril, the superintendent of our diocesan catholic schools, in the amount of "$11,005.25 to help the schools in our own diocese that our less fortunate than us. Way to go, Blessed Sacrament students, parents, parishioners, faculty, staff and supporters!
Wow, what a week we have had! Not only have we had make-up assessments, but we had two days of mini cheer clinic, a super special Baron Spirit day to finish out our 2016 Walk in Sisters' Shoes Campaign where we raised a total of $11,005.25! Wow! Not only did we reach our goal but we surpassed it by $1,000! Way to go, Barons! We would like to thank, Dana Lonergan, for organizing our campaign! She did a fantastic job and everything went smoothly and effortlessly and obviously successfully! We would also like to thank all of our parents, parishioners, faculty, staff, students, the Jr. SvDP group, the Altar Society, the room parents and everyone else that helped make this campaign work! The winning grade that collected $1,810.22 and earned an outing with Fr. Jirak and Fr. Hecker was 7th grade with a close second by less than $75.00 was 5th grade followed by our 6th grade. All of our students were fantastic and we could not have raised this much for the poorer schools of our Diocese without everyone working together. Thank you!
Below is a picture of our wonderful mini future cheerleaders with our veteran cheerleaders!
We are honored to be selected for the second year in a row as a Banner School!
Friday afternoons during the Lenten season find our school students joining together as a school to pray the Stations of the Cross and reflect on what Jesus did for us all when he gave Himself for all of us to live. May we all use this Lenten season to reflect on our lives and what we can give to others to help them and ourselves to live as Christ asks us to live.
We had a great Catholic Schools Week!
We finished up the week with the 8th grade playing the faculty in volleyball.
Fr. Devin Burns, newly ordained visiting priest from St. Margaret Mary, Wichita, celebrated Mass with our school children on Friday, January 29th, 2016. St. Margaret Mary Catholic School is one of the many Catholic Schools here in the Diocese of Wichita that receives funds from the annual Walk in Sisters' Shoes Campaign that the area Catholic Schools participate in from January 6th through March 3rd. Fr. Burns explained to our students that we do things not for ourselves but for others. When we receive something great, it is wonderful to share with those around us. What a true message for us to use in our everyday life in the sharing of our Catholic faith through stewardship of our time, talent and treasure. Thank you Fr. Burns!
Blessed Sacrament 8th Grader, Reid Whisenhant, took 3rd Place in the Sedgwick County Spelling Bee this past Saturday, January 23rd, 2016! She is now qualified to compete in the regional spelling bee on March 5th in Hays, Kansas! Way to go, Reid! We are proud of you!
We had our annual dodgeball tournament today, December 18th with our middle school students playing against seminarians from our Diocese. They had a blast!
Our 8th graders enjoyed a morning outing to Kapaun Mt. Carmel for Future Crusader Day. The morning was packed with information given out to our 8th graders on what to expect next year when they enroll for their freshman year.
We had a wonderful Veteran's Day celebration with approximately 55 active and retired veterans! We started the morning with an All School Mass and finished the morning with a plentiful delicious breakfast for our guests and musical entertainment by our 5th grade students. Our guest speaker this year was veteran, Bruce Kouba, who spoke about his experience as a Vietnam Vet.
Fr. Jirak and Fr. Curtis teach classes each Friday. Below Fr. Jirak is teaching an 8th grade class.
The 8th graders each chose a saint to study further in detail for All Saints Day. They researched their saint, wrote a report, and also prepared a short oral report of their saint. They then got the opportunity to make costumes and dress as their saint, complete with symbols and other accessories. The all came to school on November 2nd (in costume!) prepared to go visit the preschoolers through fifth grader classrooms and teach them about their saint. They present as if they were the saint and even answered questions for the kids playing the part of the saint. The project was both a learning experience for the 8th graders as well as the younger kids that they visited. We closed up the project by doing a Litany of Saints, having each student say the name of their saint and everyone responding "pray for us." It was a great experience for everyone and they did a wonderful job!
We were named "winner" for private schools for the 2nd year in a row by the Wichita Eagle Readers' Choice Award. Way to go Blessed Sacrament parents, students and staff!
Jim Williams met with our students in grades 3rd - 8th grade to discuss bullying and what we as a school can do to try to prevent it. This was Jim's 5th year coming to Blessed Sacrament.
Last Thursday, September 17th, Fr. Jirak, Fr. Curtis and Mr. Dester enjoyed a wonderful Ziggy's pizza lunch with 22 of our new students from grades 1-7. This was the 4th year that we have hosted the new students in a small group lunch to get to know them and to personally welcome them to our school.
