Toronto Catholic District School Board

Admissions and Registration
 
New students are always welcome to our school community.
 
The Board makes every effort to accommodate students at the school of their choice. Placement will be offered based on the physical capacity of the school, local demand and program availability. Please be advised that living within a school boundary DOES NOT GUARANTEE PLACEMENT. When placement is not possible in the school requested, students will be offered a placement at the nearest TCDSB school with space and program availability. Transportation may be provided in accordance with our Transportation Policy and budget availability.
 
For general information about admissions and registration, including the new online application process, please visit the main board website.
 
For specific inquiries about our school, please call us any time.
 

We welcome all students at Blessed Sacrament!
 
Registration is ongoing for all grades throughout the year; please contact the school for more information or to make an appointment.

Extended Kindergarten Registration Evening
In January 2011, parents and new students will be given an opportunity to visit the school and meet some of the staff, teachers and Parent Ambassadors; this extended registration hours will be an opportunity to have questions answered.

Kindergarten Open House
In May, 2011, a Kindergarten open house will take place at the school as part of the TCDSB Welcome to Kindergarten Program. Parents/caregivers and their children who will be starting Kindergarten in the Fall will be invited to attend an orientation session where they will be provided with resources and experiences that support early learning at home and promote a smooth transition to school.
At the orientation session, parents/caregivers and their pre-kindergarten children will engage in early learning play activities together and receive a bag of resources (including magnetic letters and numbers, books, crayons, glue, scissors, paper, pencil, play dough and more) to keep and use during the summer months.
The orientation sessions are delivered by school staff along with community partners such as the Toronto Public Library, local childcare centres, and Toronto Public Health.

FAQ for Kindergarten Registration
Who can register at TCDSB elementary school?
Catholic children and children of Catholic parents (at least one custodial parent must have proof of Catholicity).
 
Can I send photocopies of the documents?
Please provide original documents where possible to the school at the time of registration. School will make copies and return the originals to parents.
 
Is JK mandatory?
Although it is not mandatory, if a parent chooses not to send their child to junior kindergarten, they will still be placed in senior kindergarten the following September in order to keep children with their same aged peers.
 
Do you have all–day kindergarten at Blessed Sacrament?
At this time, Blessed Sacrament does not offer full-day kindergarten.
Currently, there are 38 schools in the TCDSB that offer full day Kindergarten programs; the province announced in the summer of 2010 that by the 2015-2016 school year, all schools in the TCDSB and the province will offer the full day Early Learning Program for all four- and five year-olds. This program establishes a strong foundation in the early years and will give these children a stronger start on their learning to help improve their reading, writing and math skills, provide a smoother transition to Grade 1 and help increase their success in school and beyond.
 
On what day does my child start school?
School for SK students begins on the first day of school (the day after Labour Day). JK children begin school on a staggered entry to allow for adjustment to the formal class setting. Your child’s JK teacher will contact you to make arrangements for the first day of class for your child.
 
Do I get my choice of mornings or afternoons?
Parents can indicate their preference for morning or afternoon sessions and the Blessed Sacrament administration will try to accommodate these requests as far as possible.
 
Is there school bus transportation provided?
Blessed Sacrament offers bus transportation for students within the school boundaries. The TCDSB Transportation Department at 229-5313 can also confirm the availability of transportation. The TCDSB transportation policy is available on their website at http://www.tcdsb.org/policyregister/ST01.html
