Catechetical Sunday 2017 Poster

 “In doing so, you are accepting the responsibility of training him/her in the practice of faith”

These words are what all parents promise when their child is baptized. Parents are the first and foremost important teachers in their children’s lives.  If the Catholic faith is not practiced and reinforced in the homes, all that is taught in religion classes will mean little.

Please take time to read through the handbook. Also, read the information under the Safe Environment tab.

Discipline

  Because of the need of everyone’s cooperation in implementing a religious education program, problems of discipline will not be tolerated.  We only have one hour a week for formal RE class and we cannot spend half of that time getting classes settled in.  It is the policy of this RE program when any student/s is disruptive and preventing the teacher from teaching or the other students from learning, they will be verbally warned.  If their disruptive behavior continues, they will be asked to stay after class and complete the work they should have been doing in class.  Parents will be made aware of this action after the fact.  If for some reason the disruptive behavior continues, that student will be asked to leave the class, go to the office and call their parents to come and pick them up immediately.  They may return to class the next week provided they have apologized to the teacher and are ready to be cooperative in class.  Should it happen that disruptive behavior continues, a student may be asked to leave the program.  The parent would then take over their child’s formal religious education.
