Religious School FAQ Click the plus sign next to each question to see the answer. Do I need to be a CRC member to send my child to Religious School at CRC? Our Rainbow program is open to all, including families who are not yet members of CRC. Our Pre-K – 10th grade programs are enrolling CRC members only. Please contact Maxine Weil, Director of Congregational Learning, at (314) 361-1564 ext. 118 or email@example.com if you would like to discuss your specific membership situation. What is Rainbow? Rainbow is an engaging and interactive program for preschool children and parents! It is a toddler class that meets about once a month (we offer a small handful of additional classes throughout the year). Rainbow is held from 10 am-11:30 am and includes music, movement, storytelling, interactive activities, and refreshments. It is such a wonderful chance for parents and children to learn together, for families with young children to meet each other, and it is also a great opportunity for you and your child to experience CRC. I have a toddler that I want to bring to Rainbow, but I also have an infant. Can I bring them both? Absolutely! The activities are geared more towards toddlers; however, infants will certainly receive great stimulation from the music and storytelling. Our motto is: it’s never too early to start learning! When is the first day of classes? Our first day of classes for Pre-K to 2nd grade is Saturday, October 2nd. 3rd to 6th grade students do not attend on Saturdays. Our first day of classes for 3rd to 6th grade is on Wednesday, October 6th . Pre-K to 2nd grade students do not attend on Wednesdays. Our School Kick-Off event for all families will be held on Sunday, September 19th in the sukkah. What days and hours does Religious School meet? PreK – 2nd graders meet in person on Saturdays from 10:00 am-12:00 pm. 3rd – 6th graders meet in person on Wednesdays from 4:00 pm-6:00 pm. In addition, 3rd – 6th graders participate in online small-group Hebrew classes, meeting twice a week at times to be determined by the Hebrew teachers in consultation with the parents of each small group. 7th – 10th graders meet twice a month on Sundays. What is the Parent Insight question? We ask for your Parent Insight to help us plan effectively for a successful school year. We believe that all children learn in very different ways; therefore, this insight from you will help to provide a stronger and more appropriate learning environment to meet every child’s needs. We will use the information in preparing class lists, setting goals, and assisting teachers in supporting their students in the best ways possible. Whatever you enter here will be kept completely confidential, so please feel free to include as much information as you feel comfortable. Who can I contact if I have any specific questions concerning my child? We want every family who sends their child here to feel comfortable and confident that this is the best place for them. We are more than happy to address any questions or concerns you may have so that you can reach that place of confidence. You can always reach Maxine Weil, Director of Congregational Learning, at (314) 361-1564 ext. 118 or firstname.lastname@example.org for any questions that pertain more to your specific family and/or situation.
