Letter from the Church School Director

September 2021

Hello Church School Families,

We are pleased to announce that Church School classes will begin for all students grade Preschool (age 3) through grade 10 on Sunday, September 19. It has been such a long time since we have occupied our space, and we are very excited to welcome students back to our Church School home! 

In preparation, your staff has been hard at work to ensure that all safety and health precautions are foremost. Classrooms have been professionally cleaned, windows are in working order, and each room has a dedicated air purifier. All students and teachers are required to wear masks, regardless of vaccination status. 

Our Church School teachers are truly committed to the children of St. John’s, and never seem to lose the drive or interest to inspire and motivate. We are all so happy to be back in our classrooms, and look forward to a productive year!

Our Church School programming cannot be carried out without your support. We rely on you to reinforce and enhance what your child is learning. If you need any help with expressing your faith to your children, please contact Fr. John or me, and we will be more than happy to assist you.

In Christ,

Nancy Close, Church School Director

Attendance Reminder

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 contact us.
