We take this opportunity to welcome you to the beginning of the St. Kevin Religious Education Program for the 2017–2018 Catechetical Year!
 
Please remember our classes begin this Tuesday, Wednesday, and Saturday.  Please arrive at least 15 minutes prior to the beginning of class.  The children will gather in the hall of the school (grades 1-6) and the long green canopy (grades 7th & up), and their catechist will bring them to their classroom for the start of class.  Please remember to have your child bring a pen or a pencil, and we also recommend a folder to hold any papers the catechist may give them on the first day and each class thereafter.  The catechist will let your child know if they need to bring any other supplies for future classes.  In addition, please remember to be here on time to pick up your child(ren) at the end of class. 
 
Please be sure to read our
Religious Education Handbook on our website at www.stkevinrep.org, under the “GENERAL CLASS INFO” tab.  It contains all the policies that will be followed and enforced, including attendance policy, dress code, and drop-off and dismissal procedures.   Please remember that by signing the “Requirements and Commitment” statement at the time of registration, you indicate that you have read, accept, and agree to abide by all the guidelines in the Religious Education Handbook.
 
Also posted on our website and available for you to download is the “Welcome Packet” that you received when you registered your child in our program.  Go to the “GENERAL CLASS INFO” tab, and click on the “
Documents” page on the drop-down menu.
 
The majority of our classes have an outline of the material that the catechist will be covering in their classes this year.  They will be posted on the “
Class Outlines” page on our website, under the “GENERAL CLASS INFO” tab, available for you to access and download.  You will know exactly what your child will be covering in class, and in case your child is absent, you can go over the lesson with them at home.
 
Please remember to check our website,
www.stkevinrep.org, frequently for any announcements and new information regarding your child’s Faith Formation class.  The website will be our main conduit of communicating information to you, so please be sure to go to our website on a regular basis.  We will also be utilizing MailChimp to send periodic emails, so please be sure to check your emails on a regular basis as well.  Your email address is automatically imported into MailChimp so that you can receive our emails.
 

We have open for an additional day of registration on Thursday, September 7 from 5:00 pm to 8:00 pm.  If you have any friends and/or family that have not registered and want to start or continue their child’s faith formation, please reach out to them and invite them to come in.  We have all the information on our website under the “REGISTRATION tab.
 
We and all of our catechists are blessed to be part of this community and to be able to serve all of you.  Please feel free to communicate any concerns, issues, and good reports as well to either of us. 
 
Thank you, and please help us pray for a fruitful Catechetical Year!
 
 
God bless you.
