DEAR GRADE ONE PARENTS/GUARDIANS,
First Grade will be operating as a homeschooled class. Once Registered (click here for registration form), Students & Parents are asked to work independently from home. We ask that each household do their best to see that lessons continue each week. For many First Graders, this is their first experience of religious instruction. We hope that the textbook and activities provided are useful. First Grade Parents are asked to help students pay particularly close attention to learning the basic prayers and the basic concepts of the Catholic Faith as explained in the textbook.
