St. Michael Church School Teachers 2014-2015
Total Parish Education is the Orthodox vision for Christian education. The children of our parish have been experiencing Christian education in a traditional, 40 minute classroom session after Holy Communion on Sundays for many years. All students, including visitors, from Pre-K to Grade 12, are welcome to join us in our Community Center classrooms after Holy Communion. Classes run from early September through mid June.
This year, families are asked to contribute $25/family to cover the cost of take home materials, plus $20 per student to cover curriculum and supplies.

We keep a private Shutterfly account to protect the privacy of the children, to manage volunteers, share pictures and our very active calendar. Parishioners, parents and relatives of the students may request to join the page by going to https://stmichaelchurchschool.shutterfly.com/.
While classroom learning offers an important foundation in our faith, we realize that our families need more support and hands on learning to inspire our children to live a life of faith.
This year, we revitalized our approach Registration Form 2014-15to youth education with a program to help our youth grow in faith. In our Youth Program, we plan enriching, fun & educational activities for families with children in three age groups: 0-5 years, 6-12 years and 13-18 years.
We are always looking for volunteers who can offer to manage an event, a group outing, or a special project or experience for our youth to support a monthly theme. This monthly theme will be explored in Children’s Sermons, and reinforced in our classrooms.
