This Week in RE April 19th, 2018

Hello all, 

It is hard to believe we have only 4 Sundays left before the end of our school-year programming.  Please mark SUNDAY, MAY 20th on your calendar for our RE Sunday Celebration.  At this service we will recognize our children celebrating important milestones and also acknowledge our RE volunteers.  
Many of our grades 4-6 students are currently participating in Our Whole Lives (OWL) Sexuality Education Program   This has been a great educational opportunity while also being a time for group bonding.  This Friday night, the OWL group will be having a sleep-over at UUFEC.  Should make for a fun and educational evening!  
Upcoming Information:  
  • UUFEC has decided that RE will be offering both first and second hour programs/childcare this summer.  First hour will be a multi-age educational program available to families the weeks I am not on leave.  Second hour childcare will be offered weekly.  
  • May 6 we will be having children in service.  I will be away that week, and this will be a good “practice run” for the summer months when I will be off at least one Sunday per month.  May 6th we will still provide second hour childcare.  
  • For our grades 4-6 class, 5/13 is the only Sunday with a lesson needed.  Rather than only doing one session of Sing to the Power, I suggest we provide an alternative lesson for that date.  Amy, I will touch base with you to plan a class or to choose which Sing to the Power session would fit best.  
  • Attached below is our FINAL (I hope) edits to the school year calendar.  
Thanks to everyone for all your help this year.  The last couple weeks have been very busy with an RE Community Yard Sale and kicking off OWL Program.  It has been an exciting time in RE!  
See you Sunday (if not sooner),
