Registration for CYRE Classes 

Registration for CYRE classes is available any time during the year. Forms are available from your child(ren) or youth’s classroom or the tall bookcase outside the DRE office. It is important for the safety of all of our young people and adults that every family complete a registration form for all children, youth, and infants through age 18. The nursery is available for children ages 0-2 whenever CYRE is scheduled throughout the year and for ages 0-3 whenever there are no CYRE classes scheduled.

CYRE Classes: 11:15 am - 12:15 pm 

After the “Story for All Ages,” children ages 3-18 are dismissed to their CYRE classes. (Parents are always welcome to stay with their child(ren) during CYRE to help with the transition, if desired.) Our teachers work hard to prepare lessons and activities for our children and youth. Please remain in the social hall or the nursery hallway until CYRE is dismissed at 12:15 p.m. in order to allow your child/youth to fully participate in their CYRE classes. Thank you.
