Feast of the Exaltation of the Holy Cross

Dear RE Families and Friends,

We are SO glad to be able to go back to classes in person!  The last day we saw most of the children was March 9, that seems so long ago and on that date, we had no clue that was going to be the last day of our RE in person year.  We are all so EXCITED to having classes again!

We welcome back our returning students and our new ones joining the program this year!  Lisa Schleinkofer and I are excited to be working with a great group of people this year!  Our group of catechists and assistants are eager to meet the students tonight and teach them about the Faith!  So, speaking of this wonderful group, let me introduce them to you!

Sacrament Prep
For those in the 2nd grade room and 8th grade room, sacrament dates/times will be sent home tonight.  Please take a close look at it and mark those dates.  As we don't know what will happen with COVID, this is our plan for now!

What To Bring Each Night to Class
Each student will be given a textbook and folder (grades 1-6) tonight.  They will be labeled with the students' names.  Please be sure your child brings his/her folder and book each night to class.  All other items/school supplies will be provided and kept at St. Charles.  Each child will have his/her own bag of supplies to use each week.  There will be no sharing of items.

COVID Precautions
As stated in the August news, we as a parish are taking all the precautions necessary and required to keep us all safe.  As a reminder, here is the plan:
-Students wear masks when arriving and leaving the building, they will also wear them while in movement throughout the school.  PLEASE BE SURE YOUR CHILD COMES WITH A MASK!
-Desks are socially distant in the classroom and we will space the students out as much as possible given the class size.  If 6 feet, the students may take masks off they wish.
-Desks and chairs are cleaned at the end of each school day.  When we are done using them, desk and chairs will be cleaned/disinfected.
-Hand sanitizer is available in each classroom for use.
-Students will have their own individually marked supply bag.
-We will not have a large group opening prayer this year.  We will gather students who arrive early in the school cafeteria and then release to the rooms at 6:25pm to meet with their catechists.

At Home Self Check
Please be sure to monitor your child.  If they are not feeling well on a Monday night, please keep them home.  We will always send out an absentee email to those families who have students absent.  The current symptoms on the checklist for COVID from the CDC are:  

  • Fever (100.4 or higher) or chills
  • Cough
  • Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
  • Fatigue
  • Muscle or body aches
  • Headache
  • New loss of taste or smell
  • Sore throat
  • Congestion or runny nose
  • Nausea or vomiting
  • Diarrhea

Diocesan Safe Environment Talks

Each year, we are required by the Diocese to conduct the annual Safe Environment Talks.  Mrs. Sarah Robinson will assist us again with the talks for grades 1-6 and Amy Johns will do the talks for grades 7-8.  Please feel free to check out the diocesan website to learn more about the program.  Each presentation in grades 1-6 is about 20 minutes in length.  If you would prefer your child not participate, please write us a note and send it in.  We will pull them out during that time.
Grades 1-3 is on October 5
Grades 4-6 is on October 12
Grade 7 is on October 26
Grade 8 is on November 23
