While you are preparing to close out this year, it may also be a good time to review Religion instructional materials to better address current instructional needs of your buildings, PreK-12.
We are receiving inquiries from parents aabout what/how and when we teach family life in our Catholic schools. With the new state law launching soon, many parents are concerned about the depth of health classes at the public schools because they disagree with the state’s new requirements for sexual education. Benizger Family Life materials are available for schools and parishes to review. The Benziger Family Life program is approved by the USCCB so you can build a plan and then add parent formation/education oportunities throughout the year. Deacon Eric Paige is a wonderful resource to assist in you in creating the right parent education sessions to support your parent comuninity as the primary educators of the faith.
