Dear Parents of Church School Children,
Welcome to St. Michael’s Church School, we are excited with the start of a new year. Our classes meet on Sunday mornings before Liturgy at 9:15 AM and are grouped in the three classes, pre-school through elementary, middle school and high school, using Orthodox classroom material. Thus allowing the children to partake in the Liturgy.
We focus on the Orthodox centered classroom material from September to the Nativity, culminating in a Nativity pageant marking the midpoint of our class. For the next half of the year, we focus on the Parish Life Festival theme for the year, which includes a chosen biblical quote, where the children work on age-related projects to support the theme. The younger children work on craft like projects which aid in comprehending and focusing on the theme and the older children work on preparing for oratorical and Bible bowl projects. All these projects are on a voluntary basis where all are encouraged but not forced to participate. And in addition, there is an adult version of the bowl where we, as adults, are encouraged to participate, thus enhancing our knowledge of the Bible. Naturally, we cover the main church festivals in our classes as well.
Please, fill out the Church School Registration Form 2019-2020. If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to contact Natalie Leva.
