Welcome to the 2017-2018 School Year! May God Bless Us All!

Below is the Discipline Plan that your child will receive on the first day of school. Please re-read it with your child & ask questions. I will have covered every aspect of it with them. There is a third page that needs to be signed and returned (PLEASE) before or on August 11. Thank you!!!



Middle School Religion – 2017-2018
St. Joseph School
Sr. Becky Perez, ccvi

Dear Parents and Students,
This is my 4th year at St. Joseph and my 34th year in the teaching profession. I am a Sister of Charity of the Incarnate Word, San Antonio (CCVI), and have been teaching since 1983 in the Diocese of El Paso, TX, San Antonio, TX, and St. Louis, MO.

 Once again, it is my privilege to have the opportunity to minister at St. Joseph School and facilitate your child’s development in their religious formation.

The study of religion (theology) covers many aspects of the Catholic faith; as a Catholic institution, my role is to foster what you as parents have already begun, and to make certain that the Catechism of the Catholic Church teachings are expressed, discussed, practiced, and ritualized. It is my hope to strengthen your child’s spirituality by knowing the Church’s history and laws by reading scripture, having discussion and reflection, praying and living their faith so they are able to use their God-given gifts to manifest the Love of God in their actions, words, and deeds toward the self and all peoples. These can be challenging at times, but if your child has a strong foundation, they will be able to allow themselves to reflect and choose right over wrong.

 Grading:

Classwork (Reading Assignments, Participation/Discussion, Note-taking, and Writing Tasks)         20%

Quizzes      (Written or Oral)                                                                                                            21%

9 Week Exam                                                                                                                                  
33.3%
Total %                                                                                                                                           = 100%

 

All assignments ARE NEVER a surprise. Students will know well in advance due dates so as to prepare managing their time wisely to be successful in their goals. PLEASE CHECK THEIR SCHOOL PLANNERS, RENWEB, and the WEBSITE to stay informed so as to help your child meet expectations. It is crucial that students be actively involved in daily classwork, participation/discussions, and note taking. Students need to have access to a home computer, printer, and the internet. If not, it’s important to plan ahead to meet due dates by using the Public Library, relatives, and free Wi-Fi places.     

                                            Daily Expectations:

Be    Be prepared for class with books and needed supplies; failure to comply may result in a low grade
