Greetings Dear Parents,

I hope you are all doing well!  About a year ago, I wrote a Blue and Gold message discussing several factors about our program that gives us the ability to say that we stand out in comparison to other schools.  One year later, I can attest to you that I not only continue to believe it, I see it each day in all classrooms throughout our P2 - 8th Grade program.  The School Accountability Committee's (SAC) description is that we have the "it" factor.

If you believe Blessed Sacrament Catholic School has the "it" factor, what does that mean to you?

As an educator who has served students from middle school to high school; from college bound to the state's most at-risk; from every educational trend that has passed through the state of Colorado since the late 1970's; as a classroom teacher to administrator; and as an educator at the college level, I can safely say based on the opportunities that the Lord has given me, BSCS has the "it" factor.  The school has educated students since 1922.  Given my opportunities, I believe we are setting our students up for success in high school, college, and life!
Research suggests that to attain overarching effectiveness for the student engagement we experience, we must have:
  • Educators committed to their students;
  • A shared vision;
  • High expectations for all students;
  • Strong family support for one another and the BSCS community;
  • A positive school climate;
  • Curriculum that is challenging, integrative, and exploratory;
  • Varied teaching and learning approaches;
  • Assessment and evaluation that promotes learning;
  • Programs and policies that foster heath, wellness, and safety;
  • Strong relationships with teachers;
  • Solid communication between school and parents;
  • Development of a moral compass;
  • Strong social bond between students;
  • No-cut co-curricular sports programs wherein all students make the team;
  • Students learn to accept one another for who they are.
Research also suggests the factors that lead to demotivation and ultimate drop out are:
  • Students feel classes are not interesting;
  • They are not motivated or inspired to work hard;
  • Students felt confident that they could have graduated if they tried harder;
  • High school began poorly because they were poorly prepared by their earlier schooling;
  • Disinterest led to missing class;
  • Lack of structure and too much autonomy;
  • Large class sizes;
  • Peer pressure;
  • Poor instruction;
  • Lack of school climate that fosters academics;
  • Poor transitional supports to middle school and high school.
I am inspired to believe that BSCS benefits and motivates all of its students to demonstrate the traits suggested by research.  I invite you join us on any given school day to observe any of the classrooms throughout the Preschool - 8th grade to discover the "it" factor.
God Bless you and your darling children!
Lord, help our children to know the road you have chosen for them;
May they give you glory and attain salvation.
Sustain them with your strength, and let them not be satisfied with easy goals.
Enlighten us, their teachers, that we may help them to recognize their calling in life and respond to it generously.
May we put no obstacles in the way of your inner guidance.
