Hello Church School Families and Friends,

I hope you had a wonderful day at Graduation! It was wonderful to see everyone & celebrate the future of our parish...our children!! I hope they like their class gifts as they continue creating their Orthodox Toolkits!

Now that Graduation is over, Nancy and I will be busy this summer preparing for next fall! 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 child(ren) for 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.

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

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

Thanks so much for a great year!

In Christ,

Andrea Finch

Mark your calendars! The Church School Graduation will be held on Sunday, May 20, 2018.


Last week, students should have received an entry form for this year's annual t-shirt contest. Students can enter as many times as they like. Official rules and requirements are on the entry sheet. Additional entry forms are located in the church school hallway across from the church school office. Entries can be submitted to Andrea in person or via email deadline for t-shirt contest entries is Sunday, April 22.


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 at graduation.

If you have questions regarding your child's attendance record, please email Andrea.
