BLESSED SACRAMENT CATHOLIC SCHOOL

A NATIONAL SCHOOL OF CHARACTER

ATTENDANCE LINE: (801) 572-0251, please be sure to call the attendance line by 8:00am.

Today we climb to the summit of the Liturgical Year—the Easter Triduum—from the evening of Holy Thursday to the evening of Easter Sunday. Though chronologically three days, they are liturgically one day unfolding for us the unity of Christ’s Paschal Mystery. The single celebration of the Triduum marks the end of the Lenten season, and leads to the Mass of the Resurrection of the Lord at the Easter Vigil. The liturgical services that take place during the Triduum are:

  • Mass of the Lord’s Supper
  • Good Friday of the Lord’s Passion
  • Mass of the Resurrection of the Lord

I pray these three most holy days guide everyone to experience the true joy of Easter !

DID YOU KNOW-

  • We start Easter Break tomorrow! See you on Tuesday 4/18.
  • The Rice Bowls collected almost $1,500 for Catholic Relief Services!
  • ACT Aspire testing continues after Easter break (4/24-5/1) 3rd, 4th & 5th. No studying necessary J Just a good night’s sleep and a healthy breakfast each morning.
  • We are here to answer questions! Any time you hear something that you want more information about or concerns you, please call the office or me at 801-572-5311.
  • We have a Refer-A-Family Program. If you refer a family and they register their child you are eligible for a cash reward! Tell your friends about our great school.
  • Only 10 days till Springfest! Ticket Sales extended to April 16th

We have extended the reservations for Springfest one last time to the 16th. We need about 29 more attendees to make our attendance goal! Thank you to everyone who has already purchased their tickets for Springfest. Your HSA has been extremely busy working to make this event something special. Please consider attending the event. If you cannot attend, please offer to volunteer. There is plenty that needs to be done the morning of the event as well as during. Even if you only have an hour to share, it would be a great help to your committee.

Peace and blessings,

Bryan Penn,
M.S.Ed.L
Principal

BOBCAT SUMMER CAMP

Campers will go swimming every Wednesday, hike, go to the local parks, have a monthly movie day, monthly field trip, and a lot of other fun activities! If your child is PK4 – 5th grade, they may attend. Please complete the attached registration form. Camp capacity is 30 students.

LOVE AND LOGIC
More and more really good kids are getting in big trouble with cell phones.

Teachers are pulling their hair out over students who spend more time text messaging than learning. Some students are even using phones to take inappropriate pictures of test answers… and each other!

Teen drivers and cell phones create havoc… and death!

Parents are finding themselves in constant battles with their kids over huge cell phone bills, lost phones, stolen phones, damaged phones, phones being used at the dinner table and during church, phones being taken away at school, etc.

Here are some suggestions:

  • Be a good model. Don’t use your phone while driving, and show respect for others by turning it off when you should.
  • Let your child know that they can have a phone only when they can pay for the privilege.
  • Don’t fall into the trap of believing that your kid has to have a phone for safety reasons.
  • If the phone is lost, stolen, or taken away at school, it’s gone. Don’t buy them another.
  • Take it away if it becomes a problem.

While this advice may seem old-fashioned, parents who follow it raise far more respectful and responsible kids.
