Faith Formation

 

Faith Formation Distance Learning Plan

Understanding that each of the catechists have their own comfort level with technology I have asked them each to individually plan for at least 3 lessons before the end of the year.  We will reassess when we know the plan of the school district.  Each grade level and teacher is a little different so please read below for how Faith Formation will continue for your students.

Most families will need to pick up some materials from the church.  These will be arranged in the church hall similar to last spring.  They will be available starting today at 12:00, similar to the elementary drop off/pick up.  If you are stopping there, please also stop by the church.  Our materials will continue to be available whenever the church is open.  This is typically daily from 7:30 am to 7:00 pm.

Kindergarten – Materials will be available for pick up for parents to do lessons will their kids at home.

1st Grade - Materials will be available for pick up for parents to do lessons will their kids at home.

2nd Grade - Materials will be available for pick up for parents to do lessons will their kids at home.  I will also plan to do one virtual session in December with all students together.

3rd Grade - Materials will be available for pick up for parents to do lessons will their kids at home.  Lessons will need to be picked up each week.

4th Grade - Materials will be available for pick up for parents to do lessons will their kids at home.  Future lessons will be emailed.

5th & 6th Grade – The student books need to be picked up at church.  The catechists will put together a few ideas for you to do with your kids each week, to go along with the lesson and send it via email.

7th & 8th Grade (If your student is unsure whose class they were in, Dennis met in the classroom by the kitchen, Abby was in the Narthex of church, and Alyssa was in the basement of the rectory)

Dennis’s class: Dennis will have a virtual class with his students Dec 2nd, 9th, and 16th at 6:30.  Books should be picked up from the church before the 2nd.  A link to the virtual meeting will also be sent before the 2nd.

Abby’s and Alyssa’s class: These two classes are using the same book.  Abby will have a virtual class with students Dec 2nd, 9th, and 16th at 6:30.  Alyssa will create plans for students to do with parent’s at home.  Families can choose either of these options, whichever works best for them.  In either case, books should be picked up from the church before the 2nd.  A link to the virtual meeting will also be sent before the 2nd.  Those doing lessons at home will receive them via email.  Please let me know which way your family chooses.

9th Grade – Virtual sessions will start tonight at 6:30.  Families should have already been contacted with a link to the zoom session.  Please let me know if you do not have this.  Books are available for pickup at church.

10th Grade – Virtual sessions will start Dec 2nd.  Nancy will directly email the students more information.
