April 2013
A Note from
Our Principal Mrs. Magnusson
Dear Parents,
April is a busy month at Blessed Sacrament. We had a wonderful time
at our Fashion Show. The committee did a wonderful job with
planning and presenting this event .We congratulate our second
graders as they are receiving their First Communion. This is a
special day for them, their families and us. State tests are being
administered to grades 4,6, and 8 in ELA and Math. While these
tests are challenging, we encourage them to do their best and not to
be anxious about them. We will be the scoring site for these tests for
the Parochial Schools on Staten Island.
A Note from
Our Principal Mrs. Magnusson
In a short time, our 8th graders will be graduating. We are very proud
of them as they are hearing from their schools about scholarships and
acceptances. To date, we have learned about the following
Lucy Primiano Full to Moore and acceptance to Tech.
Rose O’Neill full to Hill and Sea and acceptance to Tech.
Brendan Mackey Emerald Society
Daniel Heaney half from Peters
Mary DiSpirito partial to Notre Dame
Shenal Tissera half from Xaverian and half from St.Peters
Justin Boyd half from Xaverian
Nicholas O’Byrne Shauns Hicks Men’s Club Golf Academic Scholarship.
Hope to see you at our next meeting.
