History of Our School
- Blessed Sacrament School was built at a cost of $5,000 and dedicated in August of 1926. It was a modern brick building with a full basement that was used as a hall and a school chapel.
- Original plans dictated that it would eventually be converted into a church.
- There were two girls and four boys in the first graduating class of 1927.
- In 1948, a second story was added to the school thanks to the generosity of the Ryan family.
