Getting RE Ready for the Fall…

We’re looking for committee members & volunteer teachers!!

The ‘Back-to-School’ season is approaching and that means we’ll be Back-to-RE in no time!  To prepare for the year ahead, the RE committee will be meeting Wednesday August 9th.  For anyone interested in joining the RE committee please join us at 7pm, downstairs in the open RE room.  Also, in order to prepare parents and volunteers, I will also be holding “teacher trainings” on:

 

Wednesday 8/16 7pm

Wednesday 8/30 7pm

 

Each training will run for ~1 hour and will cover the basic structure of RE class as well as info on the PS/PK curriculum Chalice Children & the K-2nd curriculum on Bible stories.

 

*In an effort to make ‘teaching Bible stories’ comfortable and easy for all, the K-2nd curriculum will now offer 2 lesson choices for each story- one from the Gather ‘Round curriculum & the other from the new UU curriculum Picture Book Bible Tales.  Please join us on one of these nights to learn more!!

 

Please Note: 3rd grade and 4th/5th grade curriculum will only be discussed if parents are interested in hearing about it, but “training” is not necessary, as we have a consistent teacher for each class & volunteers will just be needed for support!

 

Looking forward to another great year,
