Hello Church School Families and Friends,

I hope you had a wonderful day at Graduation! I was so pleased to spend time with everyone celebrating the children of our parish!! I hope the children are enjoying their class gift as they start to create their Orthodox Toolkit! 

If you were unable to attend Graduation, I have extra t-shirts. Please let me know!

I am relieved to have one year under my belt as your Church School Director and I'm looking forward to year number two. 

Now that Graduation is over, I'll be busy all summer preparing for next fall! I have been brainstorming with our staff and Fr. John and will be making a few exciting changes to our programming for next year! Stay tuned! 

If you are interested in teaching, co-teaching, or being an assistant, please let me know! All are welcome! 

In order to ensure that I have updated information about each child, I am asking that every family register their children in the Church School online. I will be using these lists for a multitude of purposes, so it is important that you take the time to complete this quick form

If you are unable to register online, please email me with your phone number & I will contact you in order to gather the necessary information! 

Register Online Here

Don't forget to join our Church School Facebook page using the link to the right! 

Please feel free to contact me at school@stjohnd.org if you have any questions, concerns or suggestions.

Thanks so much for a great year!

In Christ,

Andrea Finch

Please note ...

In order for children to benefit from our Church School program, regular attendance at the Divine Liturgy and in class is essential. The continuity provided by weekly attendance makes it possible for students to understand, appreciate and embrace our Orthodox faith.

All students who have attained at least 50% attendance during the school year will be awarded a certificate of completion and will be eligible for other awards/gifts at graduation.
