GRADE 6 - Homeschool Instructor: Parents & Legal Guardians
Textbook: The New Saint Joseph Baltimore Catechism No. 2 (PART I & PART II)
TEXTBOOKS MAY BE PICKED UP IN THE PARISH OFFICE OR THE FRONT HALL OF CHURCH DURING MASS TIMES ONCE STUDENTS ARE REGISTERED.
DEAR GRADE SIXTH PARENTS/GUARDIANS,
Sixth 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. We hope that the textbook and activities provided are useful. Sixth Grade Parents are asked to help students pay particularly close attention to the major concepts expressed in the Creed and in the Ten Commandments which form the basis of the Parts I & II of the Baltimore Catechism. The true/false and fill in the blanks after each lesson should be completed and reviewed. All of the exercises correlate to the chapter, so the answers are always easily found in the text. There are also various scriptural references/exercises for students found throughout.
Below are resources for the 2020-2021 Academic Year:

SUNDAY OCTOBER 25, 2020: THANKSGIVING FOOD DRIVE BEGINS:
Thanksgiving Service Project:
This year our parish will be distributing food for Thanksgiving through St. Martha’s Outreach Program to feed families and enable them to have a special Thanksgiving Day. We ask that you please open your hearts and help us to provide for those in need that we may one day hear the words of Christ, “come, you who are blessed by my Father, inherit the Kingdom prepared for you from the creation of the world. For I was hungry, and you fed me. I was thirsty, and you gave me drink.” Matthew 25:34-35. Our efforts this year are of particular importance due to the Pandemic which has adversely affected many families and will make the holiday season increasingly difficult.
Please bring all donations to the parish food pantry in the front hallway of Church no later than Sunday November 15th
