RE Grades 1-5

Elementary children in grades 1-5 meet on Wednesday evenings, 4:45-6:00 pm or 6:30-7:45 pm. Class groups of 10-12 children gather in classrooms in St. John the Baptist Catholic School. Each class is taught by volunteer catechists. The program begins in the fall and continues through the school year, following both the Church liturgical calendar and ISD 191 (Burnsville-Savage-Eagan) calendar for the schedule of classes.

Children in Grades 1-5 will use Alive in Christ, published by Our Sunday Visitor. This text features a unique scope and sequence that integrates the seven major themes of Catechesis: Creation, God, Jesus Christ, the Church, Christian Morality, the Sacraments, and Salvation History. Children pray together, participate in service projects and form new friendships. They are also exposed to the rituals and traditions unique to our Catholic faith.

Students gather in the school gym before each session begins. At the end of the session, children are to be picked up in the classroom by a parent/designated adult or older sibling. **The catechist will not release the child until the parent/designated adult or an older sibling is present to pick him/her up or will bring him/her to the Education Office to wait.
