Dear PREP Parents,
Welcome to All Saints Parish Religious Education Program (PREP) 2016- 2017! We are looking forward to a great year of learning more about our faith. The first day of PREP is Sunday, August 21. Come to the Parish Center at 9:00 am to check in. The opening prayer and welcome is at 9:15 am. The children will then go to their classrooms, and you will be invited to go with them to see their classroom and meet the teacher. Families with more than one child may then go to the other classrooms. Parents may stay in the classrooms until dismissal at 10:45 am. PREP families are invited and encouraged to attend the 11:00 am Mass afterwards, especially this first class.
Please turn all of the above forms in on the first day of class, August 21.
Every Sunday, please enter the school through the entrance off Glenover Ave. We ask that you do not drive into the area between the buildings (school and Parish Center). Please escort young children (grades 1-3) into their classroom and pick them up in their classroom after class. The safety of our students is of utmost importance. If someone other than the parent is picking up the child (including a sibling), we need a note. If it is every week, state that in the note. Otherwise, a note is needed each time. We will be taking informal (not for sale) class pictures on September 18th . We will give each child a picture to keep.
I would like for you to take a few moments to review the information in the Handbook. Please mark the class dates on your calendars. Please note the dress code. Out of respect for the PREP Program, please dress as you would for Mass. Also, it is important to understand that PREP is not the same as attendance at Mass. Each student must attend Mass in addition to Sunday PREP.
Please feel free to contact me at any time. I look forward to another great year of PREP!
