Discipline Policy for PSR
As a reminder to all, our discipline policy for PSR classes consists of 2 verbal warnings and upon the 3rd warning the child will be sent down to sit with Sara Mack in the hallway and may require a phone call to the parent by either Theresa or Melissa. Please remind your kiddos to be respectful of their teachers. Our catechists our volunteering their precious time to assist our kids on their spiritual journey and we really want to show our appreciation for them. A good attitude and respectful behavior goes a long way! Thanks
Students Exiting after PSR
As a reminder - All PSR students should be exiting the building through the basement main doors after class. Thank you!
Special note to anyone considering one of the SACRAMENTS next year
For any parent seeking the Sacrament of Confirmation for their son or daughter...
The confirmation candidate must have attended a Parish School of Religion or had the equivalent faith formation at least 1 year prior to the year of Sacramental preparation. If your faith formation did not occur at Resurrection, parents must provide documentation of religious education by showing curriculum used as well as work completed. Students enrolled in Resurrection’s PSR must have attended at least ¾ of the classes for their 7th grade year. Students enrolled but absent a significant amount will be required to make up homework over the summer to be enrolled in Confirmation classes for their 8th grade year. Resurrection Confirmation Program is 1 year and begins in September of 8th grade and the candidates are confirmed at the end of 8th grade (typically in April.) Please contact Melissa Heichel for any questions or concerns.
For any parent seeking the Sacrament of Reconciliation and First Holy Communion for their son or daughter...
