Religious Education Handbook
All children are expected to attend all scheduled classes. Please call the Religious Education office if your child is going to be absent. Excessive absences may result in your child repeating the year.
If your child is diagnosed with a communicable disease, please notify the Religious Education office immediately.
Classes are scheduled for ONE HOUR each week:
(New day and time coming stop back
PLEASE have your child in his/her classroom a few minutes before class is scheduled to begin. Teachers need to complete their lesson each week and if teaching cannot begin on time individual classes may not be ready to dismiss on time.
School building doors will be locked 15 minutes after classes begin in order to insure the safety of students and teachers.
Your children are being taught by volunteers who generously give of their time and talents. Please be considerate and appreciative of their commitment to help enrich the spiritual life of each student.
Children are not permitted to leave class early. On the rare occasion that an appointment is absolutely necessary a note must be presented to the director before class begins. For safety reasons the parent must ring the doorbell and come into the building to pick-up their child from his/her classroom.
We hope that parents will encourage their children to behave properly in the classroom. If a discipline problem does occur the parents will be notified.
NO CHILD WILL BE ALLOWED TO LEAVE THE SAFETY AREA UNLESS AC-COMPANIED BY A PARENT OR GUARDIAN.
Do not expect your children to come to the car while you are waiting in or next to it.
is an integral part of your child’s faith formation. Mass attendance goes hand in hand with the Religious Education Program. One cannot do the work of the other. If your family is not already worshipping regularly, you are invited most sincerely to join us each week in the celebration of the Mass. Religious education classes have a strong reference to the Mass making it difficult for both the teacher and student if they are not regularly participating in the celebration of the Mass.
To be eligible to be a part of a
sacramental preparation program,
a child must attend Mass regularly.
Students entering Grade 2 must know the Sign of the Cross, Hail Mary, Our Father. Confirmation Candidates must know the above, the Act of Contrition and Apostles Creed.
