Class Information

Dismissal Policy: Preschool through Second Grade
In order to ensure safety, children in grades pre-2nd grades will only be dismissed from the classroom if a parent is there to pick them up. If you have children in other grades, we encourage you to make arrangements to meet them at the classroom of the youngest sibling. Any child(ren) not picked up within a reasonable time will be taken into the cafeteria to wait for a parent.
Preschool/Kindergarten
This is a combined class. Children should either be 4 years old by Aug. 1st or going into kindergarten for the 2016-17 school year
First Grade
The Diocesan policy states that children "celebrate First Communion after two years of catechesis." Thus it is important that first graders be attending PSR in order to eventually celebrate First Communion in second grade.
Second Grade: First Reconciliation/Communion
The Journey to Eucharist will continue for your family on Saturday, October 1st when we gather for a potluck dinner at 4 pm followed by Mass and family activities. More information will be sent later.
Third, Seventh & Eighth Grades
For three Fridays during Lent, the Stations of the Cross are led by these specific classes. Participation is part of the PSR curriculum and attendance is required. The date for each grade level can be found on the Elementary and Jr. High calendar.
Fifth Grade
Fifth graders, along with their parents, will participate in a special PSR class, Sunday, April 23rd to learn about the Mass with the Fr. John and Deacon Mike. Participants will meet at the church during the regularly scheduled PSR time. Fifth graders will take the lead in the various liturgical ministries at the 11:00a.m. liturgical celebration immediately following this PSR session.
Fourth & Sixth Grades
Attendance at one of the Children’s Reconciliation services is part of the PSR curriculum for these grades. The service is held in the church at 3:00 p.m. Fourth grade - Sat., Nov. 5th. Sixth grade - Sat., March 18th.
Confirmation (Grades Eight)
All students preparing for Confirmation must be registered and attending PSR or Catholic School

Bibles

We encourage each student to have their own Bible for use at home. The Catholic Youth Bible is for older youth and adults and will be used in the junior and senior high programs. Copies of the Youth Bible are available for review at the parish office.

Students in the First Communion program will be presented with a Bible at no cost.

Catholic Youth Bible - $25.00 each

Please print and submit a Bible order form to place an order.

If a family cannot pay the fees, they should contact the Director/Coordinator of Religious Education at 330-699-4500. All such information will be kept confidential.
