I hope you had a great summer! We have some big changes this year, starting in the early childhood classroom (Mrs. Brown's room) and in the elementary classroom. We are transitioning to a new program this year called Godly Play. I have attached a handout that explains the program in depth. Please take time to read it so you can help your child with the transition. The biggest change they will see first is a teacher (or 2) who will greet the children and help them be "ready" to enter the classroom. Please watch this video: https://youtu.be/BjkFshasPTs to learn more about Godly Play. You may want to watch the video with your children so they have an idea of what to expect.
We also will have a registration table so you can sign up your children for class. I have revised the form this year to simplify it. With all the children that have food allergies, it is very important that the teachers have this information the first day of school. I have attach the form so you can fill it out ahead of time and avoid the registration line.
Lastly, we will also be implementing changes from the archdiocese regarding all teachers and volunteers who are in the classroom. All youth workers must go through a vetting process which is being conducted through the church office. Please see me if you have any questions about this policy.
As always, feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns.
