“The Glory of God is man fully alive.” -St. Irenaeus of Lyons, Bishop and Martyr

It is a blessing to be called to aid in the human and spiritual formation of young people who are called to be holy–that is, to be most fully, most freely themselves, united to Christ, sharing in the mission of the Church, and even from this moment, called to “bring the Gospel to all nations” through the witness of their lives.

 

 

Dear Parents and Students,

Some website reminders–

For Virtues in Practice, there are 3 things required see the sidebars for more information if you have lost the Parent book:

  • Log (done by student)
  • written out project (done by student with your supervision at beginning of month)
  • Comment sheet (done by both of you at end of month)

For Scriptures–the Scriptures provided here are primarily for YOUR participation. Students receive a sheet at school. (see sidebars for these)

Google Classroom— your child should be checking Classroom regularly–you can add yourself as a guardian to receive alerts. You are also welcome to check Classroom with your child. I encourage parents to learn along with their children!(see sidebars)

Classroom Syllabus: Grade 6 Syllabus

All NEW information is highlighted in yellow. Please be aware of these changes.

In 6th grade, we will focus on Old Testament and Liturgy & Worship–the reasons behind Catholic Liturgy, the Mass, as well as the format and beauty of Liturgical worship and other Sacramental rites.

 

Here is a great link for Biblical Background–It is not Catholic, so it lacks the Sacramental viewpoint, but there are no errors in what I’ve seen so far. Let me know if you have any questions:
