Learning Virtually: Beechwood and Blessed Sacrament School News

Blessed Sacrament School News

The faculty and administration at Blessed Sacrament School have been working diligently to continue providing top-tier education for their students while everyone is learning from home. Hands-on experiments, phonics and math lessons, praying together in groups online, and even participating in the state science fair via the ZOOM app has helped to keep our BSS families on track during these unprecedented times.

Beechwood School News

Beechwood junior Katherine Taylor finds out on Google Meet that she earned a perfect ACT score of 36.

Katherine Taylor scores a perfect 36 on the ACT and finds out via Google Meets!

Finding out that you attained a perfect score on the ACT couldn't have come in a more unique way as it did this year for Katherine Taylor, junior at Beechwood High School. Upon receiving the scores, Beechwood principal Justin Kaiser, assistant principal Sarah Schobel, and teacher Julie Rash delivered the news the only way they could - via Google Meet . The reaction was priceless and received social media attention and was featured on Fox 19 News. Congratulations to Katherine. Interestingly enough, this was not the first perfect score in the Taylor family. Katherine’s brother, John, achieved a perfect score a few years ago while attending Beechwood.

Monica Namyar, Art teacher at Beechwood HS, has taken on a variety of personas while delivering instruction to her students. Mrs. Namyar has donned costumes, such as Andy Warhol and Bob Ross, in order to make things a bit more fun as students transition to learning through google classroom.

Beechwood Art Department collaborates with Cancun Mexican Restaurant to deliver "The Art Challenge" to all Beechwood students

Monica Namyar and Sharon Mitchell worked together to challenge all students to design and color a Beechwood piece of artwork, post it on their front door or window, and take a selfie with it to post on Twitter. The postings were seen by Cancun Mexican restaurant on Buttermilk who then offered a $50 gift card to the winning submission! A great representation of our community rallying behind the schools to help engage our students.
