Our Mission

The mission of St. Anastasia’s School of Religious Education is unique. We strive to provide excellence in each child’s spiritual development. The spiritual life is the unifying principle that nourishes and enriches our religion program.

Our Staff

Our Religious Education program is taught by valuable instructors who offer their time, faith and knowledge to serving our community and our children. Our program thrives because of the dedication of the inspiring instructors on our staff. All of our teachers meet the diocesan requirements for catechetical training and faith formation.

Acceptance of Student

St. Anastasia School of Religious Education accepts students for all sacramental preparation including children in grades Kindergarten through Eighth Grade. Children must be ready to receive religious instruction and our school may not accept children who do not meet certain criteria; e.g., emotional stability or age appropriate social maturity. Our parish is dedicated to meeting the needs of all children and alternative faith formation is offered in these cases.

Children wishing to receive the Sacraments must meet the required standards of the diocese and our school by attending and participating in all of the Sacramental preparations of our formal religious instruction.

Withdrawal of Student

Parents should notify the Religious Education office in writing if a child is withdrawing from our school.

Absence

Our school is required to keep adequate records of weekly attendance. When a child is absent from class, a written explanation from the parent is required upon returning. If the child will be out for an extended period of time, parents are required to telephone the Religious Education Office.

Good to perfect attendance is encouraged and will be rewarded.

Evaluation

Students achievement and progress in grades K – 7th are evaluated and reported twice a year. Progress reports are distributed at a parent/teacher conference in mid year and a final report sent home at the end of the year.
