Blessed Sacrament Catholic School is the recipient of two Community of Caring Utah Innovative Practice awards for the Character Tree that was created by all of the students under the direction and guidance of Mrs. Mullholand and for the portfolio, “Reflections in Faith, Academics, & Character.” The portfolio contains a short reflection and/or photographs or drawings from each student in an area of faith, academics, or character. The portfolio will be created each year and will be somewhat of a history book on what transpired over the school year. Thank you to all students and faculty for making these awards possible. The awards will be presented during an award ceremony at the University of Utah on April 6, 2011.

A little about the Community of Caring and why we at Blessed Sacrament Catholic School feel that it is a worthwhile organization to be a part of.
Community of Caring is a K-12, whole school, comprehensive character education program with a unique focus on disabilities. Community of Caring was founded in 1982 by Eunice Kennedy Shriver and has been adopted by almost 1,400 schools nationwide and in Canada. It is research-based and has a proven record of accomplishment. Community of Caring believes that the universally accepted ethical values of caring, respect, responsibility, trust and family are the foundation on which responsible decisions and behaviors are based. Community of Caring believes that creating caring relationships and a caring school community while teaching values across the curriculum is essential in creating safe and healthy learning environments in which all children can succeed and prosper academically and ethically, including students with disabilities.
