SUMMER PREP

OUR LADY OF CHARITY IS PLEASED TO ANNOUNCE THE THIRD YEAR OF OUR SUMMER PREP PROGRAM FOR GRADES 1-7, BEGINNING JUNE 18, 2018.

Students enrolled in these eight evening sessions will complete a year’s work and are expected to fulfill other requirements. These will involve Faith formational activities which must be completed before the end of the regular school year. A trip to St. John Neumann’s Shrine will be one of the Faith formational activities with the information to be given out shortly. It is recommended for grades 3-7. It goes without saying that you are required to participate in Sunday masses and Holydays of Obligation.

Second graders in Summer PREP must also attend 10 Tuesday evening classes during the school year for sacramental preparation. These dates will be given to you prior to the closing day of Summer PREP. The mandated Safe Environment Class will be offered on February 5, 2019 and will be one of the schedule maintenance sessions as required by the Archdiocese.

Seventh graders are encouraged to be enrolled in the Summer PREP program so that there will not be the need for 10 Tuesday evening classes in order to be prepared for the reception of the Sacrament of Confirmation which is usually in November. These classes will start sooner than the regular school year unless you are available to attend the summer program. We should be hearing from the Bishop soon as to our specific date for this coming year.
The Pastor has requested that enrollment in Summer PREP is limited to those who have been registered members of Our Lady of Charity as of February 1, 2018. Your active participation in Mass is expected.

Due to the intensive pace of these classes, punctual attendance for the entire session is mandatory. Any absence, tardiness, and/or early departure will result in a student being transferred to the regular Tuesday program. No refund will be given and the tuition will be applied to the regular school year program.

Children are expected to learn their faith, including instructions in doctrine, sacraments, commandments, and prayers. Homework will be assigned because the material is compressed in a short amount of time.

Please note that registration is not complete until you have returned registration form and tuition payment.
