Can my child still participate in Sunday School even if he or she won’t be able to attend every Sunday?
All children are welcome to attend our Sunday School classes and while we hope your child can attend every class, we understand this isn’t always a possibility. Please try to attend as many classes as possible so your child’s spiritual learning can continue uninterrupted.
What happens if my child requires medication during Sunday School?
Teachers and Saint Nicholas employees cannot administer any medication. If a student needs to take medication during school hours, the parent is responsible for providing proper written documentation signed by the ordering physician and also signed by the parent. Parents are fully accountable for such medication and absolve the Sunday School and Saint Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church from any responsibility.
Why should my teenager participate in Sunday School? Aren’t they old for that?
No, we believe learning is a lifelong occupation and that it is most critical during high school when our children are confronted with very adult issues such as body image and self worth, stress management, and drug and alcohol abuse. Providing them with a template for decision- making and keeping in mind Christ’s message of love can help them enter adulthood with confidence and kindness.
As a parent, how can I engage with the Sunday School program?
First and foremost, speak with your children about what they are learning in class and how they can apply it beyond the classroom. Introduce yourself to their Sunday School teacher and learn about the teaching materials we use – many have parental versions that can prove not only educational, but enjoyable as well. We also welcome talented individuals to join our teaching community or otherwise volunteer with us.
