         Proper documents (i.e. Baptismal Certificates, etc.) will be requested for your childs permanent file.  Certain documents are necessary to have on hand before your child can receive a sacrament.

         All children are expected to attend ALL class sessions.  If your child is absent for any reason, you MUST phone in the absence.  More than 4 absences (excused OR unexcused) may result in removal of your child from the program for the year and to repeat the same grade the following school year, including sacraments.
