Pre-K4 through 5th grade classes meet Saturdays

PK4 and Kindergarten gather to hear and experience “Stories of God’s Love" series.:  They have snacks, play games, and engage in many hands-on activities all centered on God’s immense love for us.  A highlight of the year is the Advent Blanket Mass, where they present a baby blanket they made and sing a song for the infant Jesus.  PreK and Kindergarten are not required classes for our students, however, is a wonderful way of welcoming them into our parish faith community and learn more about how God loves them.

HOMESTUDY (Grades 1-5):  Full year homestudy is an option for those students who are not able to commit to attending classes on a weekly basis.  A book and review sheet are given to the student and parent with instructions as to what chapters to cover for a mid-term test in January and a final test in April/May.  Many families find it is a great opportunity to share their faith, however, it takes a great time commitment.  Please contact the Faith Formation Office about this option.

INDIVIDUAL EDUCATION: Students who have missed a year or more of Religious Education classes must meet with the Individual Education Coordinator.  This situation will then be discussed with each family and a recommendation of either one-on-one tutoring or home-study will be decided upon.  They cannot progress to their next grade unless all requirements are met.  Please contact the Faith Formation Office for more information.

CELL PHONE USE:  We understand that there are certain situations where the students need to use a cell phone.  A classroom setting is not one of them.  Please make it clear to your child that the use of a cell phone for calls, texting, or photography is not allowed.  If you child is sick and need to get in touch with you, that can be done in the Religious Education Office.  The use of these devices is very distracting in class, not only for the user, but also for the rest of the class as well.  If a student uses the cell phone in class, it will be collected by the teacher and after class, it will be returned when a parent comes to the office to retrieve it.

 May God continue to bless you and your family!
