We had a successful first two weeks of classes, and we thank you for your support and cooperation as we continue on this Catechetical Year.
We would just like to remind you of a few guidelines of utmost importance to keep in mind throughout the year:
Students should come dressed comfortably, but appropriate for class and Church.  In other words, all students are expected to dress modestly. 
Students are NOT allowed to wear “short” shorts or “short” skirts, tank tops, sleeveless shirts/dresses, gym shorts, sweat pants, leggings, flip-flops, crocs, or distracting hair pieces.  Sports uniforms are also not permitted.  Any student who continuously comes to class improperly dressed may not be allowed into the class and may be asked to go home, which could potentially count as an absence.

Please remember that if it is the first or second year of preparation for a sacrament, we allow up to five (5) absences for the year, regardless of the reason, in terms of counting the year towards sacramental preparationThere are no excused or unexcused absences.  A student with poor attendance and/or excessive tardiness may not have the current year count towards sacramental preparation.  If a student is absent, the office may send a courtesy email to the parents to inform them of the number of absences their child has up to that point. 
(*Please note that due to Hurricane Irma, the first absence will NOT count towards the five allowed in the year for sacramental preparation.)

Students received their books in class from their catechist this past week.  The book must be brought to class every week.  Also, all students need to bring the necessary supplies for class, including a pencil or pen, their books, and any other supplies requested by their Catechist.

Once a student is registered for a particular class day, absolutely NO changes will be made under any circumstances due to lack of resources (i.e. catechists, classes, etc.).  There will be NO exceptions to this rule.  Students received their class assignment on the first day of class, which cannot be changed whatsoever

All of the above guidelines are taken from our “Religious Education Handbook,” which contains all the policies that will be followed and enforced this year.  If you have not done so, please make sure to read the
Religious Education Handbook on our website at, under the “GENERAL CLASS INFO” tab. 
Please be sure to also check our website,, frequently for any announcements or new information regarding your child’s Religious Education classes, including class outlines.  The website will be our main conduit of communicating information to you.  Also, please check your emails on a regular basis for any important information and reminders we may send throughout the year.  Remember that we will be sending the majority of our emails through MailChimp
Do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.
God bless you.
