…RELIGIOUS EDUCATION NEWS…

Our Religious Education Program, formally known as “CCD” is getting a makeover…
Our program has been updated in order to provide students with a better sense of community and service to others,
while promoting increased family-focused faith time.  Beginning with our younger family members, large group
instruction, small group discussion/sharing and creative rotation will be incorporated into the morning.  Our older
children will also experience large and small group time, along with more in-depth service opportunities.  Our goal is
a program which respects hectic family schedules and also encourages a family bonding based on growing in the
faith together.

Here are some highlights for 2017-18:
  •  Classes run from September through April and include:
  •  Two sessions (classes) on campus per month
  •  Monthly Family Faith Days & Supplemental Learning (Family-Focused Faith)

  •  All PREP classes held on Sundays:  
  •  K-4:  Sunday mornings from 10:15 – 11:45 am
  •  5-8:  Sunday evenings from 6:45 – 8:15 pm
Students in K-4 will enjoy...
  •  Stronger faith community and group service    
      projects
  •  Team approach to teaching
  •  Large group instruction by level/grade – little to no
      classrooms
  •  Learning opportunities through skits (performed by
      older students) to jump start each session
  •  Rotation of groups to different educational zones
  •  All students gather in the gym for final prayer and  
      dismissal
Students in 5-8 will experience…
  •  Stronger faith community and group service
      projects
  •  Team approach to teaching
  •  Traditional instruction in classrooms
  •  Large group instruction outside the classroom
  •  Supplemental learning in preparation for small
      group discussions
  •  Additional service opportunities offered  
What does this mean for parents?
  •  Opportunity for more family-focused faith (at Mass, parish events/activities, family time, bonding opportunities
      on a faith level)
  •  Decrease in number of sessions
  •  Supplemental learning for parents and students
  •  One drop-off location and one pick-up location for all students
