Elementary SOR

Prince of Peace Elementary (1st - 6th Grade)

Mondays & Wednesdays 6:00 - 7:00 p.m.
Weekly Home Lessons:  Children complete half-hour home lessons weekly using Ignatius Press's "Faith & Life" series presented through My Catholic Faith Delivered.  Each Grade's Home Lesson Syllabus is attached below under Additional Resources.  These lessons are a vital part of this program.  As such, we track and record your progress. 

Each Syllabus is slightly different from grade-to-grade.  The greatest difference is for 2nd Grade. They have additional lessons to prepare for First Reconciliation before Christmas and First Holy Communion in the Spring. 

Monthly Classes/Parent Meetings

Next Elementary SOR Child/Parent Formation Evenings will be Wednesday, May 2 and Monday, May 7.
Catholic Counselor Michael Ciaccio will present on Keeping Your Family Safe: Drinking, Drugs, & Addiction.
 

Children meet monthly in the Prince of Peace School Classrooms while parents attend their Parent Meeting in the Parish Hall. 

  • The classes for our children are NOT interchangable.  To remain Virtus-compliant, our children attend the class they are placed in.
  • We offer the same Parent Talk on that given Monday and Wednesday.  While it's generally most convenient for parents to attend the Parent Talks when their children are in their Elementary SOR classes, feel free to attend this on the other evening as needed.

Periodic Family Gatherings

We all meet in the Parish Hall or Church periodically for a Family Gathering. Families attend together, as there is no child supervision on this evening.  The same event will be offered that given Monday and Wednesday. While it is generally most convenient for families to attend on their given SOR evening, families are welcome to attend either session.  As you are attending with your children, you are supervising them, and there are no Virtus issues.

Catechist Formation

This is training for Elementary SOR catechists and volunteers.  If you are not volunteering with this program, you need not attend.  Consult the Elementary SOR Calendar below in Additional Resources for details.  

The next Catechist Formation is Wednesday, April 18, and Monday, April 30, 6-7 PM in the Art Room.

Donations Request

The Elementary SOR Program is looking for donations:

  • Game Pieces (The pieces you move around the board.  If you have old games missing pieces and would like to donate the others, we'll take 'um.)
  • Physical Bingo Markers or Tiddly Winks, (not the liquid daubers.  I'm not that brave!)
  • Lego Minifigures 
  • Dice
  • Hula Hoops (Clean ones only, please.)

If you wish to donate any of these items, please drop them off at the Christian Formation Office.  Thank you and God Bless.

Parish

Fr. Jerry deeply respects the institutions of family and parish.  Religious education should take place within one's family, under the umbrella of one's home parish.
