Dear Parents/Guardians,

As the 2006-2007 school year is upon us, may you find comfort as the Holy Spirit works through
all of us as we continue to enhance the lives of our children. This growth begins at home and is
further encouraged within our Roman Catholic environment that encompasses values and
academic excellence.


This Parent/Student Handbook provides a written description of the present policies and
procedures of Blessed Sacrament School. Included in this handbook are descriptions of daily
operational procedures of Blessed Sacrament School. It is asked that you read it carefully and
keep it as a handy reference throughout the school year to assist with clarifications.


If further questions or clarification is required, please contact the school office for a personal
appointment as we look forward to serving you and your family.


God Bless,
Kathleen Kannenberg
Principal

                                  SCHOOL MISSION STATEMENT

In partnership with the parent community, we the faculty of Blessed Sacrament School are

committed to educating each child holistically. We foster faith, honor, respect and responsibility

in a Roman Catholic environment through stewardship of the mission of teaching given to us by

Jesus Christ.



                                       SCHOOL PHILOSOPHY

We, the faculty, believe that each child is a unique creation of God. We believe that parents are the
primary educators of their children. We will work as partners with parents to help children grow
holistically (spiritually, intellectually, physically, socially, culturally and emotionally) at home and in
school. We believe that optimum growth occurs when each child, along with his or her family,
participates actively and responsibly in the prayer life and educational process of our school.
We facilitate and promote holistic growth in a Roman Catholic educational environment which
proclaims belief in Jesus Christ, celebrates life and its events through Eucharistic worship of God,
asks forgiveness of all within the community, encourages service to all, and recognizes our call to
be responsible stewards of the earth.

                          SERVICE COMMITMENT REQUIREMENTS



We recognize that our children at Blessed Sacrament want and need us to be part of their daily

lives. We further recognize that we have a need to work together to achieve parish and school

family goals. We realize that hiring coaches, playground supervisors and lunchroom helpers, etc.

would be cost prohibitive or simply not possible. Therefore, we believe it is imperative that we do

our part to serve one another. We choose to formalize our acknowledgement of these needs with

the forty (40) hour service requirement. The gifts bestowed on us all by our Creator can be

categorized along the lines of time, talent, and treasure. It has been said that “Time is money,” and

“Everyone has a price,” but the simple truth is that “There are some things that money can’t buy.”

Your child will never remember that you paid $200, but they will remember that you came along on

field trips, or helped on the playground, led scouting activities, or coached their team, and they will

learn to serve others by your example. Those who are not able to serve will simply forfeit their

commitment fee of $200.00. Each of us is called to serve many times and in many ways. Recall

Jesus’ description of the Last Judgment in the Gospel of St. Matthew Ch. 25, 31-46, “...For I was

hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink ... as often as you did it for one

of my least brothers, you did it for me.... as often as you neglected to do it to one of these least

ones, you neglected to do it to me.” Each of us is expected to use the talents we have been given.

The rewards for service far exceed the refund of a service commitment fee. Jesus reminds us in

the Gospel of St. Mark Ch. 4, 24, “... In the measure you give, you shall receive, and more besides.”




                                                 13
                          SERVICE COMMITMENT REQUIREMENTS

1st). The ONLY exceptions to this policy will be those families that meet the “automatic” service
commitment as listed on the following pages.

Families who qualify for the “automatic” service commitment refunds will be given the option of
receiving their refund before Christmas or at the end of the school year. All remaining families who
complete their forty (40) hour service commitment will receive their refund at the end of the school
year. Please note that every family who completes their service commitment has the option of
rolling over their commitment fee to the following school year. Parents/Guardians who are
employed by the parish cannot use these hours towards their service hours. Forty (40) hours of

                                8th Grade Service Hours
As leaders of Blessed Sacrament School, the 8th grade student sets the standard for the
younger students. They are to be the role models for the school motto: “Forward in Faith
with Honor, Respect and Responsibility.” As such, each 8th grade students is expected to
fulfill a minimum of 40 hours of community service, which is separate from the 40 hours
family service commitment.

These service hours are a small way of “giving back” to the school, parish and greater
community from which resources have been used to educate them to this point. The Lord
Jesus himself said: “It is more blessed to give than to receive.” (Acts 20:35)

The 8th grade student can begin earning their service hours starting after the “Rite of
Passage” Mass, which is in the spring of the 7th grade year. Completion of these hours
must be acquired by April of their 8th grade year (or prior to the class trip). When the
student has acquired the 40 service hours, he/she will:
___Participate in the class trip
___Receive his/her diploma
___Participate in graduation ceremonies
___Be eligible for consideration for Valedictorian/Salutatorian Honors

The activity must be validated by the event coordinator or other person of authority. The
student must document the date of each service activity along with duration. When
completed, the service hour’s card is turned into the 8th grade teacher.

If there are any questions about service hour fulfillment, final validation of service hours will
be at the discretion of the principal.

The following are some suggestions:
Free babysitting                 Free yard work for elderly neighbors
Fish fry volunteer               Concession stand volunteer
Childcare during H & S meetings Family Mass usher/reader
Assist school faculty                  Fund raiser volunteer
Clean-up after dances/fundraisers
Market Day volunteer

                     *Other ideas need to be approved.

                               EARLY AGE ADMISSION STATEMENT

Archdiocesan policy states that “children who have reached age requirements are given priority for
admittance into kindergarten before consideration is given to underage children.”

Any family requesting early admission should contact the school office. Only parents with a child
whose birthday falls between September 1st and October 1st may apply for early admission. (The
exception to this is MPCP participant students, where early age admission is not allowed.)

A child may be admitted to kindergarten earlier than at the regular admission age provided that the
following procedures are followed:

The child’s fifth birthday falls between September 1st and October 1st, (9/2 - 9/30) in the year the
child proposes to enter school.

The child has had some pre-school or four year old kindergarten experience.

A letter is presented from a certified teacher recommending early age admission.

The child has successfully completed the kindergarten readiness screening, both academically and
socially.

The child has been tested individually by public or private school personnel.

                               RANDOM SELECTION PROCESS

Blessed Sacrament School has a limited number of Choice seats available. After the close of the
open enrollment period, if the number of eligible and complete student applications exceeds the
number of new seats available the random selection process will be implemented. The day of the
drawing will be announced and open to the public. It is not necessary to be present to be selected.

During this process, applications will be randomly assigned a number in each grade level. Numbers
will then be drawn randomly from a container to determine the placement order for each grade
level. The random drawing will continue until all available seats are filled, and a waiting list order is
determined in the event that a previously filled spot opens up. The drawing is conducted by the
Principal of Blessed Sacrament School or her designee.

Phone calls and/or letters will be mailed within one week following the random drawing to notify
applicants of their acceptance or their number on the waiting list.

                               “At Risk” Special Needs Student


Blessed Sacrament is not totally equipped to give adequate help to students requiring exceptional
education. It is recommended that enrollment for “at risk” students be made in a school where
trained and certified teachers are capable of meeting the “at risk” students’ needs.

 However, Blessed Sacrament School has Supportive Consultants that assist the Principal,
teachers and parents in identifying children at risk.

 Procedures:
1.      The classroom teacher or Principal makes a referral to one of the Supportive Consultants.
Reason for the referral may include perceived learning, social, emotional or behavior problems.
2. A conference is held among the Supportive Consultant, the teacher and Principal to clarify
    the referral.
3.      Parents are invited to the school for a conference.
                  School records are checked and reviewed
                  Teacher observations are shared
4.      Parents are requested to authorize testing for their child.
5.      The Supportive Consultant administers the tests
                      a. Ability – Slosson
                      b. Achievement – PLAT, WRAT, Key Math
                      c. Emotional: Devereaux
                      d. Visual Motor: VMI
6.      General conclusions are drawn from the test data, along with teacher/parent observations,
as to the type of problem.
7.      Parents are notified and a conference is set up to develop an action plan will be taken as a
result of the data gathering and testing.
8.      A student support plan is developed.
9.      Classroom teacher and specialists work on the implementation of the student’s support plan.
10.     If the student should continue to be unsuccessful, the parents will be asked by the
Supportive Consultant to contact their local public school district.
11.     Blessed Sacrament then works with the parents and the local public school district on
referral procedures.
12.     The teacher and Support Consultant attend the IEP meeting regarding the student.
13.     If it is possible, Blessed Sacrament implements the IEP.
14.     Parents and teachers meet quarterly to assess the plan and progress of the student.
15.     If Blessed Sacrament teachers believe they cannot implement the IEP, the Principal will
inform the parents by conferencing with them.

Internet Rules:
Students are responsible for good behavior on school computer networks just as they are in a
classroom or a school hallway. Communications on the network are often public in nature. General
school rules for behavior and communications apply.

The network is provided for students to conduct research and communicate with others.
Independent access to network services is provided to students who agree to act in a considerate
and responsible manner. Parent’s permission is required for minors. Access is a privilege, not a
right. Access entails responsibility.

Individual users of the school computer networks are responsible for their behavior and
communications over those networks. It is presumed that users will comply with the school/parish
standards and will honor the agreements they have signed.

Network storage areas may be treated like school lockers. Network administrators may review files
and communications to maintain system integrity and insure that users are using the system
responsibly. Users should not expect that files stored on school servers would always be private.

During school, teachers of students in elementary and junior high classes will guide them toward
appropriate materials. Outside of school, families bear responsibility for such guidance, as they
must also exercise with information sources such as television, telephones, movies, radio and other
potentially offensive media.

The following are not permitted:
Sending or displaying offensive messages or pictures              Using obscene language
Harassing, insulting or attacking others                          Violating copyright laws
Damaging computers, computer systems or computer networks         Using others’ passwords
Trespassing in others’ folders, work or files
Intentionally wasting limited resources
Employing the network for commercial purposes

Depending upon the violation, one or more of the following sanctions may be invoked:
                      1. Loss of access to equipment
                      2. Additional disciplinary action
                      3. Notification to law enforcements agencies.

                   CUB SCOUTING PROGRAM AT BLESSED SACRAMENT
                                                    2006-2007

Scouting remains a very active program at Blessed Sacrament. Parents who serve as volunteers
give their time and expertise to provide interesting and enriching required programs. The Tiger
Cubs BSA is a program for boys in the first grade and their adult partners. It allows the boy and
adult to build strong relationships with each other, with the rest of the family, and with members of
the Tiger Cub’s Den. Weekly activities are usually home-centered, with the family using the “big
ideas” of 17 different program themes around which the program is built. The main emphasis of
Tiger Cubs BSA is fun for a boy and adult, but many of the activities are suitable for participation by
the entire family.

Cub Scouts and Webelos Scouts: It is the mission of the Boy Scouts of America to serve others
by helping to instill values in young people and in other ways prepare them to make ethical choices
over their lifetime in achieving their full potential. In this area of Scouting, they work together to
attain the following objectives:

       Influence a boy’s character development spiritual growth.
       Help boys develop habits and attitudes of good citizenship.
       Encourage good sportsmanship and pride in growing strong in mind and body.
       Improve understanding within the family.
       Strengthen a boy’s ability to get along with others.
       Help boys foster a sense of personal achievement by developing new interests and skills.
       Provide fun and exciting new things to do.

       Prepare him to be a Boy Scout.

All Cub Scouts meet once a month at a Pack Meeting. Dens can meet individually which is the
choice of the leader. Dens can meet at the leaders’ homes.

The values we strive to instill are based on those found in the Cub Scout Promise and the Law of
the Pack:

Cub Scout Promise                                             Law of the Pack
I, (name), promise to do my best                              The Cub Scout follows Akela.
To do my duty to God and my country,                          The Cub Scout helps the pack go.
To help other people, and                                     The pack helps the Cub Scout grow
To obey the Law of the Pack.                                  The Cub Scout gives goodwill.

Girl Scouting at Blessed Sacrament remains a very active organization. Volunteers render their
services for the success of the scouts. Projects are performed by each troop; many are services to
the family, church and community. Requirements must be met to be awarded their respective
badges.

There are troops from Kindergarten through 8th grade. Watch Tuesdays red folder for information to
become involved in a troop. Each grade is always looking for volunteers to be leaders. Some
grades may not have an active troop because of lack of volunteers. Great opportunity to earn
service hours.

organization’s constitution, and by-laws, as well as each coach’s responsibility and each student’s
responsibility. This handbook is also included in the back of this school handbook.

                                            PLAGIARISM


 Plagiarism is the use of and representation of other people’s words and ideas, in whole or in part,
     as the students’ own work. The definition applies to words or ideas taken without proper
                      acknowledgement from any published source, such as:

               a.     Another person’s ideas, opinions, or theory

               b.     Any facts, statistics, graphs, drawings

               c.     Quotations of another person’s actual spoken or written words

               d.    Paraphrases of another person’s spoken or written words without proper
               acknowledgement.

               e.     Submitting in whole or in part a paper written by another student.

               f.     Allowing one’s essay, assignment or test answers to be copied by another
               students are to be considered a form of cheating or plagiarism.

               g.      An electronic resource such as material discovered on the World Wide Web,
               Internet, etc.


All teachers in Grade 5 through 8 are expected to explain to all students in their class the concept of
                          plagiarism and methods of proper documentation.

Penalties for Plagiarism:
The individual teacher of grades 5, 6, 7, & 8 determines the penalty for plagiarism. Penalty for
plagiarism is either:
           1. Reduction in the grade of the paper
           2. A 0% for the paper

A teacher must discuss the alleged offense with the student or students involved. Parents must be
informed of the plagiarism and its consequences.

                                 EVALUATION OF STUDENTS
Evaluation of the students takes place formally four times a year for students in grades K4-8.
Mid-quarter reports are issued four times within a school year. Students in grades K4-8 receive
standard-based evaluations. K3 is evaluated with a progress based assessment. Parent-Teacher-
Student conferences are held formally three times a year. These conferences allow the parents,
students and teachers an opportunity to discuss the on-going progress and development of the
student.

The Archdiocese of Milwaukee mandates testing in order to maintain a school’s accreditation. At
Blessed Sacrament School the following test schedule is followed.

       Students in Grades 2 through 8 are administered the ITBS Fall Survey each September
             The Fall Survey tests include: Reading, Language and Math

       Students in Grades 4 & 8 are administered the Wisconsin State Tests
             Grade 4 & 8 WKCE (Wisconsin Knowledge & Concepts Examination
                            This test will be taken in November

       Students in Grades 1 through 8 will be administered the Complete ITBS
       Battery, which includes the Cognitive Abilities Test. These tests will be administered in early
       March.

       Grade 8 will be administered the Algebra Test


       Grades 3, 5 and 7 will also be administered the Archdiocesan Religion Assessment in
       March.



The primary purpose of this entire testing program is to assess the continued progress and
achievement of the students. The results of these tests assist the principal and teachers of Blessed
Sacrament School in on-going curriculum planning and textbook assessment as well as “new
programming.”

                                      Discipline Philosophy

In order to make the entire student body of Blessed Sacrament School, an active, Roman Catholic,
Christian learning community, a discipline plan must exist. Believing that discipline is a mutual
responsibility, we the staff and administration will strive to develop students who honor, respect and
are responsible to themselves, fellow students, staff and parents.


Behavioral Expectations

1. Students shall honor, respect and be responsible for classroom and school wide rules.

2. Students are expected to respect the rights and dignity of others at all times.


Discipline Procedure

When a student continually disobeys the behavioral expectations, the following steps will be
followed:

1.      Formal discussion between the student and teacher/supervisor regarding the inappropriate
behavior. Student and teacher develop a Plan of Action. If the plan of action is not honored and
carried out by the student, procedure #2 will be initiated.

2.     Formal contact and conference with the teacher, parent(s)/guardians and student. Student,
Parent(s)/guardians and teacher develop a Plan of Action. This plan reflects the student’s goals,
responsibilities and consequences. Plan is dated, and signed by all parties. If procedure #2 is not
honored, procedure #3 will be initiated.

3.     Formal contact and conference with the Principal
          1. Principal reviews past history
          2. Meets with parent(s), student and teacher(s)
       3 Develops a plan with the above parties

If the above procedures do not bring about a change in behavior, in justice to the other students,
and to the student himself/herself, any of the following actions may be taken.


Probation

A student may be placed on probation for a trial period by the principal. After conferences are held
with the student, parents or guardian, the principal will set conditions for release from the probation.
The principal’s decisions are final. All new incoming students are placed on probation for one year.




                                                 41
                                 (Discipline Philosophy/Behavior Expectations Continued)
Suspension

1.    Prior to any suspension, the student will be advised of the reason for the proposed
suspension. The parent or guardian of a suspended student will be given prompt notice of the
suspension and the reasons for the action.

2.     In-school suspension will be directed for varying lengths of time, but shall not exceed five
days. In-school suspension conditions will be determined by the principal.

3.      Out-of-school suspension is considered a rarity and is the responsibility of the principal.
State law directs that a maximum of five days can be imposed unless a written notice of an
expulsion hearing is scheduled. Such notice shall allow not more than a total of fifteen consecutive
school days to be served in suspension until the expulsion hearing is held. The principal
immediately following a serious disciplinary offense may give out-of-school suspension. Such a
suspension is for investigative purposes.

Expulsion

Expulsion is considered a termination of enrollment, permanently or for an extended period of time.
Expulsion shall be considered as a rarity and used only as a very last measure.

Expulsion results from repeated refusal to obey school rules or from conduct which endangers
property, health, or safety of others, and is deemed to be in the best interest of the school. An
extremely serious single offense may also be cause for expulsion.

Students asked not to return the following year are considered to be expelled. Students not allowed
to return due to failure to meet required academic standards are not considered to be expelled.

The superintendent of Catholic Education or via one of the assistant superintendent will be informed
before any action leading to expulsion is taken.

Expulsion Procedures

1.     Actions taken to suspend or expel students shall be preceded by internal school procedures
and supported by defensible records. (Plan of Action developed by student, teacher, parents(s) and
principal.) Plan of Action #1, #2 and #3. unless a single, serious offense, than support of the incident
should be recorded.
2.     Expulsion can take place only after an expulsion hearing has been held. Parents/legal
guardians shall be notified in writing at least five days before the hearing is to take place. The
hearing committee composition and procedures will be clearly identified by the parish school
committee.
3.     The hearing committee makes a recommendation to the pastor and principal.
       The recommendation will be to:
       a) not expel (other disciplinary suggestions should accompany this recommendation)
       b) exonerate the student of any wrong doing
       c) expel
4.     Before the hearing is held the parents and student are informed of the possible
recommendations of the committee and that once the hearing is in progress that the student may
not have the right to voluntarily withdraw, in lieu of expulsion, unless that is the recommendation of
the committee.

                                  (Discipline Philosophy/Behavior Expectations Continued)


5.     If the decision to expel the student is made, parents are notified, in writing, of the action.
The right to appeal is made known to the parents.


Appeal

The student, or his/her parent or guardian, may within five school days following notification of the
expulsion, appeal to the Director of Catholic Education in writing with rationale for appeal. The
Director will only assure that correct procedures were followed as defined by Archdiocesan policy.

Procedural Guidelines for Expulsion Hearings in Elementary and Middle Schools

                Insure that elements of the Suspension Policy and Expulsion Policy as outlined in P
         & R 5144 have been followed. The local disciplinary code and policies need to be
         consistent with those of the Archdiocese.
                The Expulsion Hearing Committee is composed of 3-4 people. Choose members
         from various sources within the parish – former trustees or parish council members, parents
         of former students, at-large parishioners who have certain skills/backgrounds that would be
         a good “fit” for the situation. One of these hearing committee members needs to
         chair/facilitate the hearing, not the pastor.
                An expulsion hearing is not a legal proceeding, therefore neither party may have an
         attorney present during the hearing.
                The pastor is present for the entire hearing itself and during the deliberations of the
         hearing committee.
                The school is represented by the principal, along with any teachers if appropriate.
         The schools gets a certain amount of time (say up to maximum of 30 minutes) to present the
         chronology of events that lead up to the initiation of the expulsion process along with the
         supportive documentation & rationale as to why the expulsion is being sought.

individual is essential. Therefore, it is imperative that we maintain a learning environment that is
free from any form of sexual/verbal harassment or intimidation. In doing so, all personnel and
volunteers will be in compliance with the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops Charter for
the protection of children and youth as applied in the Archdiocese of Milwaukee. (4111.1 4129)

“Sexual Harassment” means unwelcome sexual advances, unwelcome physical conduct of a sexual
nature or unwelcome verbal or physical conduct of a sexual nature. “Unwelcome verbal or physical
conduct of a sexual nature” includes but is not limited to the deliberate, repeated making of

                                       COMMUNICATION
Parent Communication With Teachers
Parents are encouraged to consult with a teacher whenever the need arises. It is best if an
appointment is made in advance. Teachers are available from 7:30 A.M. until 3:15 P.M. Monday,
Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday. Arrangements may be made via a note or by calling during school
hours to leave a message with the school secretary. Your message will be forwarded to the
teacher, who will return your call as soon as possible. If the teacher/parent dialogue does not bring
satisfaction, the parent may contact the principal. A conference with the teacher, parent, student
and principal may be arranged if necessary.

                              Principal’s Communication With Parents
Each week the principal writes to the parent community informing them of activities and events of
the week.

Tuesday Folder
Communication between the home and school is always important, thus you will receive a weekly
letter from the principal. Other timely information from the teachers, athletics, Home and School
and Parish will be sent via the Tuesday folder. Hopefully, this will keep you informed about the
educational programs, events and news at Blessed Sacrament Parish and School.

                            PARENT CONCILIATION PROCEDURE

Rationale
In all human endeavors there may be difficulties, disagreements, and problems that arise. In the
vast majority of cases, these situations can be solved through communication between the parties
involved. Indeed, even the Gospels challenge us to resolve all differences by going to the individual
involved. The purpose of the conciliation procedures is to provide for those instances in which
differences cannot be resolved.

                                                Procedure
If an individual student is experiencing a problem, the proper procedure is for the parent to first
consult with the TEACHER. If the problem is not resolved at that level, the parent may make an
appointment with the PRINCIPAL to discuss the problem. The problem will then be discussed with
the teacher, the parent, and the principal. If this does not appear to alleviate the problem, the
parent may initial grievance with the Pastor. If this does not appear to alleviate the problem the
parent may request a hearing with the PARISH SCHOOL COMMITTEE. If the problem is not
resolved with the Pastor and Parish School Committee, the parent may initiate an appeal to the
Archdiocesan Conciliation Committee.

Step 1         TEACHER – Parent conferences with teacher prior to step two.

Step 2         PRINCIPAL – If no resolution, parent conferences with the principal

Step 3         PRINCIPAL, TEACHER, AND PARENT(S) – a joint meeting occurs

Step 4           PASTOR
If there is no resolution, the parent(s)/guardian(s) can initiate the formal grievance process by
providing a letter to the pastor no later than 10 working days after the informal meeting noted
above. The letter must contain the following:
           -   the date/time/place of the informal meeting
           -   the name and position of the employee with whom the disagreement exists
           -   factual information and background regarding the disagreement
           -   specific recommendations for resolution of the issue
After receipt of the letter, the pastor will provide the employee 5 work days to respond and then
schedule a meeting with all parties within 10 work days to desirably work through conciliation
toward resolution. Should resolution occur, the process is concluded.

Step 5         PARISH SCHOOL COMMITTEE

If there is no resolution through Step 4, issues of concern will be heard by the Parish School
Committee. The committee will hear all sides of the dispute no later than 30 days after the
parent(s)/guardian(s) forwards a copy of the letter noted in Step 4 to the committee. The committee
will render a decision to all parties. If there is consensus of all parties, the process is done. If
resolution does not occur, a final appeal is possible to the Archdiocesan Grievance Committee.




                                                49
Step 6         ARCHDIOCESEN GRIEVANCE COMMITTEE

Should resolution not occur through Steps 4 and 5, the parent(s)/guardian(s) can request, within 10
working days, an appeal to the Archdiocesan Grievance Committee, which serves as the final
appeal body on the issue, absent arbitrary or capricious actions as determined by the
Superintendent of Schools. Should an appeal not occur, the issue is resolved.

The Committee, ad hoc in nature and consisting of no more than five members, will be selected by
the Superintendent for their ability to discern and decide objectively and shall come from lists
maintained by the Office for Schools, Child and Youth Ministries and other appropriate citizens.

This ad hoc Committee shall have the right and responsibility to decide whether the issue, itself,
warrants an appeal. If the Committee agrees that an appeal should be heard, it will establish a
meeting for all parties within 30 days of an appointment at a mutually convenient time and date to
hear all sides of the dispute. Within 5 days after the appeal, the Committee will render a decision
that is binding on all parties as noted above. If the committee decides not to hear the issue,
resolution 5 is final.

                                MIDDLE SCHOOL HONOR ROLL

Within the Mission Statement of Blessed Sacrament School, one goal is “To develop the whole
child: intellectually, emotionally, spiritually, aesthetically, physically and socially.” Therefore, the
school urges each student to develop his/her own potential to the best of his/her ability. Though our
students have varying degrees of ability, we strive to recognize their efforts in several ways: the
Academic Honor Roll, public recognition and awards for outstanding effort and school spirit. A
quarterly honor roll from the Middle School will be published at least three of the four quarters.
Eighth grade students achieving High Honors will be recognized at Graduation. The Valedictorian
and Salutatorian will be selected based on the 8th grade point average and completion of their
required service hours.




                            8TH GRADE CLASS TRIP GUIDELINES


       1.      The 7th grade teacher and students will brainstorm ideas for their 8th grade trip.

       2.      Each 7th grade student and parent will fill out a “form” and submit two “class trip”
       ideas to the principal before June 1st.

       3.      Within the 2nd week of the new school year, 8th grade students and parents will meet
       with the 8th grade teacher and finalize the trip destination.

       4.      The principal and pastor must approve the destination.

       5.      A parent fund raising group will be established. Criteria will be developed on how the
       monies will be allocated. The principal and pastor will approve a schedule of fundraisers
       and a time line for the year. The principal and the administrative secretary will supervise the
       monies.

       6.     A financial up-date must be reported to each student and family at least twice during
       the year informing the student where he or she stands financially. The administrative
       secretary will also keep these records.

       7.      If insufficient fundraising occurs – each student will pay the difference.

       8.      The principal, pastor and 8th grade teacher will determine the eligibility of students to
       attend the 8th grade trip. Eligibility will be based on behavior and academic performance.

                          POLICIES FOR MIDDLE SCHOOL DANCES

Lock-in
Middle School dances have always been a lock-in situation. Students are to remain at the dance
until the end. Students are not allowed free access to the playground, stairwells or other areas of
the school/gym. An adult is always on duty at all doors. If a student will arrive late, parents should
call the contact listed on the permission slip and notify them of the child’s name and time of arrival.
Dress Code
Appropriate dress is required at all Blessed Sacrament dances. The permission slip states that
midriff baring tops, tank tops, halter tops and shoulderless tops, and short skirts are NOT proper
attire. Any student wearing inappropriate clothing will be asked to call their parents for either
appropriate clothing or a ride home.

Chaperones
In the past, dances were held to raise money for the 8th grade class trip. The group organizing the
dances is responsible for providing an adequate number of chaperones to ensure the safety of all
students. A relative or friend 21 years of age or older, who has completed VIRTUS training is
eligible to chaperone.

Miscellaneous
Cell phones are NOT allowed. Any cell phone brought to the dance will checked in with the
chaperones and returned at the end of the dance.

The group organizing the dance is responsible for cleaning up the school hall. In the past, 8th grade
students were responsible for clean-up. The effort takes approximately ½ hour.

Gum is not allowed on the school premises.

                              HOT LUNCH AND MILK PROGRAM

Blessed Sacrament does have a hot lunch program (Alverno Caters Tonight). Children who stay for
lunch may purchase tickets for Hot Lunch or bring a bag lunch from home. Hot Lunch tickets are
purchased on Mondays in the school office. Milk is available for children whose parents wish them
to participate in our milk program. Milk is ordered and paid for at the beginning of the school year
and is available to all students. Because our milk program is federally funded, and in compliance
with government regulations, the milk must be consumed in school. Children may order milk for
morning recess, as well as the lunch periods. REMINDER: WE HAVE A CLOSED LUNCH
PERIOD. No parent/guardian is allowed to bring in McDonald’s, Burger King, etc. due to our Hot
Lunch Program. The office provides cold lunch for students who do not have a lunch. A final count
is ordered for the day by 8:15 AM.

                     SPECIALTY LUNCHES – HOT DOG/HAMBURGER

Specialty lunches are offered to the student body once a month. Information about each specialty
lunch is always found in the Tuesday Red Folder.


                       PARENT-TEACHER-STUDENT CONFERENCE
A meeting of parents/guardians, teachers and students will be held on a one-to-one basis at the
end of each quarter, except at the end of the school year. Report cards will be distributed before
the scheduled conference. According to student needs, conferences may be held at any time
between parents and teachers or parents and principal.

                               PARISH INSURANCE COVERAGE
Liability Insurance is effective before school beginning at 7:30 A.M., during school hours and after
school until 5:30 P.M.

                                  PLAYGROUND EQUIPMENT
Each classroom is supplied with a minimum amount of playground equipment: basketball, jump
ropes, rubber ball, and nerf or non-nerf football. Children are to leave their personal play
equipment at home. Proper care of playground equipment is expected.

                                      HOMEWORK POLICY

Homework is meant to reinforce and enrich the concepts and skills learned in school and to
stimulate interest on the part of the student. Homework is developmental in nature. It increases in
scope with the maturity and capability of the students.

   Homework is properly planned and purposeful in nature. It furthers the student to:
       -    Learn to work independently and become self-reliant;
       -    Think, plan, organize and apply concepts;
       -    Extend proficiency in effective habits and skills;
       -    Increase knowledge and its use;
      Develop insights and stimulate creativity
       -    Homework Club is available for grades 3-8 upon sign up.




                                                53
                                           PROMOTIONS
A student will be promoted to the next grade when he/she has successfully completed the
academic requirements of the present grade. Students who have achieved “above average”
academic status in addition to demonstrating outstanding social behavior, will be promoted “with
honors”. Eighth grade students achieving the above will GRADUATE WITH HONORS from
Blessed Sacrament School.

                                   RETENTION OF STUDENTS
Retention of a student will be done judiciously, after considering grade standard, as well as
archdiocesan policies and regulations, social and behavior factors. When retention seems likely,
parents will be contacted formally by the second report card. This conference will include the
reasons for the recommendation of possible retention and a program for remedial action.

In early March, a conference with parent(s), principal and teacher will be held to inform the parents
of the school’s final decision in regard to retention or promotion of the student.

                                             ABSENCES
If a student is going to be absent, the office should be notified by phone between 7:00 A.M. and
8:00 A.M., or through a note sent in with a sibling upon arrival at school. If a student’s absence has
not been reported, the school secretary will call the home or parent’s place of employment.
A note is needed if a child is absent for more that 5 days or for reoccurring absences. A reoccurring
absence is more than 2 absences per month. (Please see Communicable Disease Policy.)
Any student absent from school because of a communicable disease i.e. measles, chicken pox,
mumps, etc. MUST HAVE written permission from the health department or a physician before
he/she will be readmitted to school. It is required that parents/guardians report their child’s
communicable disease to the local health department.

Students will be marked absent as follows: for any portion of 2-3 hours missed, the pupil will be
marked ½ day; 3-5 hours, a full day. School attendance for all students is a requirement. Because
we value the time we have for instruction, it is important that students attend school on a regular
basis. Any student who is absent is responsible for gathering work, which was missed. Since K3 is
a half day program the absence regulation is ½ of the above listed.

Administration and staff discourage doctor and dental appointments during school hours. However,
if this becomes necessary, a written note must be presented to the teacher indicating the desired
release time. All students must be picked up in and released from the school office by the secretary
or principal. Students will not be dismissed from the buzzer door.

When planning a family vacation, the parent(s) shall inform the Principal and child(ren)’s homeroom
teacher of their intentions. Arrangements should be made with the respective teacher(s) regarding
assignments.

                                      STUDENT TARDINESS
Students are expected to be in their homerooms when the 7:55 A.M. bell rings or they will be
considered tardy. A student who is tardy must report to the office before going to his/her
classroom. If you know your child will be tardy, and would like hot lunch, a call to the office prior to
8:15 AM is required.

The school will follow the directive as written in the Milwaukee Archdiocesan Policies and
Regulations Manual that states, “All programs of education for children/youth in the Archdiocese
shall provide instruction on AIDS in accordance with the philosophy of the Catholic Church.

Communicable Disease Policy
It is the policy of the school, pursuant to federal, state and local laws and regulations, and in
cooperation with state and local public health agencies, to establish and maintain appropriate health
standards for the school environment. These standards promote the good health of students and
educate students in disease prevention methods and sound health practices.

In an effort to maintain a safe and healthy school environment, the faculty will provide educational
opportunities to the students regarding measures that can be taken to reduce the risk of contracting
and transmitting communicable diseases at school or at school related activities.

Students may be excluded from school/school related activities if they are suspected of or
diagnosed as having a communicable disease. Blessed Sacrament School reserves the right to
prevent admission to school due to health concerns. Physcian’s approval may be required. (See
Absences)

Head Lice
Head lice is an infestation of the scalp by Pediculosis humanus capitis, a very common parasite,
especially in school age children. Lice infestations are not a major health threat but they are
communicable. In order to prevent the spread of head lice in a classroom, Blessed Sacrament
School has adopted a “no nit” policy. If a student is found to have head lice, he/she MAY NOT
attend school until he/she is treated with a pediculicide product(a special louse killing shampoo) and
all nits (louse eggs are removed from his/her hair, as determined by a public health nurse, or the
child’s personal physician, or approved by the school office. The student may return to school as
soon as all the procedures are accomplished.

VIRTUS
Blessed Sacrament School Staff, Administration, Parish, or any adults in a supervisory role must be
in compliance with mandated VIRTUS Training Requirement. All parent and school volunteers
must be in compliance with the mandated Virtus Training Requirements. Refer to page 66 for
policy.

teacher’s home phone number is never given out to any school/parish member. Teacher’s are
required to supervise their classrooms, therefore all conferences and contacts are to be arranges to
avoid conflict of roles and give full attention to parents and students.

                      INCLEMENT WEATHER AND SCHOOL CLOSING

If Blessed Sacrament School is unable to open for an entire day because of weather conditions,
announcements will be made prior to 6:00 A.M. on the following TV stations: Channel 4, 6,
and 12. Radio stations: WOKY (AM 920), WTMJ (AM 620), WISN (AM 1130). PLEASE DO NOT
CALL THE SCHOOL. The lack of an announcement means that buses will run and school will
open. Blessed Sacrament will close for inclement weather when:

Milwaukee Public Schools close.

     Milwaukee Archdiocese closes all Catholic schools.

In the event that a sudden emergency forces school to close before the regular closing time,
students will be sent home early. All parents will be notified by the school office at their home/work
phone number. The office will also call your emergency contacts as well. Please make sure your
child knows exactly where he/she will go and what they will do until other family members arrive.

THE ABOVE RADIO AND TV STATIONS WILL BE IMMEDIATELY NOTIFIED IN THE EVENT OF
AN EARLY SCHOOL CLOSING.

In the case of severe weather, water failure, or boiler trouble, etc the procedure for an emergency
closing will be followed using the information you gave the school on the emergency and family
information form. The announcement of the closing will be made over the radio. WE FOLLOW
MILWAUKEE PUBLIC SCHOOL FOR CLOSING BLESSED SACRAMENT.


                                            FIELD TRIPS

Field trips enrich the instructional program by using community resources which are related to the
school curriculum. Such trips are REQUIRED because they reinforce and enrich the
teaching/learning process. Field trips are not considered optional; all trips are considered a regular
day of school.

Written permission of parents is secured before students participate in field trips. Pupils are always
accompanied by teachers and by a sufficient number of chaperones.

All money and permission forms for field trips should be sent in a sealed envelope with student’s
name and homeroom to the homeroom teacher BY THE REQUESTED DATE. Due to the fact that
all trips costs are figured on the number of students attending at the time of the field trip
reservations, monies CANNOT BE REFUNDED. No student will be denied access to field trips due
to lack of funds. If there is a financial difficulty, please contact the principal for assistance.

There might be students who will not be invited to participate in a field trip based on their attitude
and/or behavior. Parents of such students will be notified and the student(s) will spend the day at
school in another supervised area, doing assigned work.

                            FIELD TRIP CHAPERONES

        Your primary purpose in being a field trip chaperone is to help and assist the
teacher in any way that you can and to help keep the children safe.

       Field trips are for Blessed Sacrament students only – no siblings are allowed to
come on trips. School field trips are not family trips to the zoo, museum, play, etc., but class
trips.

        Chaperones are a welcome part of the field trip experience, as teachers need the
extra hands for assistance, away from the school environment. Chaperones are selected by
the teacher on a per field trip basis. Some field trips require many chaperones, others only
a few; the teacher and the field trip destination spot determine the number of field trip
chaperones allowed.

        All chaperones must meet VIRTUS Training requirements.

          Every effort is made to have willing parents accompany a class on a field trip AT
LEAST ONE (1) TIME PER YEAR. Anyone volunteering but not selected for that particular
field trip, will be selected for the next field trip, if possible. Chaperones are selected by the
classroom teacher, and will be notified by the classroom teacher if they are selected for a
particular field trip.

         Sometimes, chaperones are free for a certain field trip, other times; the chaperones
will pay a fee. This is always stated on the field trip form. Please DO NOT send in any
chaperone fees until the classroom teacher notifies you that you will be a chaperone for that
particular field trip.

       You may only be assigned to chaperone one grade at a time, for example, if you
have a child in 1st and 3rd grades and both are going on the same trip, and you have been
asked to chaperone in the 3rd grade, you may not have your two children with you. You may
only chaperone in the grade for which you have been assigned.

        Chaperones are to follow preset guidelines for the field trip given by the
teacher/administration.

        You may not be able to chaperone your own child, although, whenever possible,
the teachers will try. The primary purpose is to keep the students safe so they may have an
enjoyable experience. (If this means a dad of a daughter will chaperone boys, so he may
accompany them to the bathroom, and his daughter goes with someone else, then that must
be okay with the parent chaperones.)

       Chaperones must ride the bus with the students. (They may not drive behind the
bus and meet up with the class at the destination.)

        If you are not selected to chaperone a field trip, you may not drive on your own and
meet the class at their field trip. Doing so will only confuse the child as to who is in charge –
is it Mom or Dad or the chaperone? Of course, it must be the chaperone assigned to that
child and appointed by the teacher.       Revised 5-6-03
