RELIGION

 

TEXT:  The New American Bible, Blessed Are We, Family Life

 OVERVIEW:
During the school year sixth graders will focus on faith, prayer, worship and how personal choices affect their lives and the lives of those around them.  Throughout the school year students will celebrate with Assumption student body, staff and community during monthly liturgies and assemblies.  Sixth graders are responsible for organizing and presenting at least two Masses during the school year.  Students receive participation credit for conduct at school Masses, assemblies and religion classes. A basic history of Catholicism will be presented through the use of the text and Bible stories.  Students will become acquainted with the books of the Bible. Students are responsible for participating in service projects throughout the school year.  Each semester, students are to complete 6 hours of service projects individually and 6 hours of service projects classroom sponsored (Cornwall park and school garden) for a total of 12 hours.  Acceptable projects are those in which the student works without monetary compensation or other extrinsic rewards to benefit others and are not a part of the student’s familial responsibility.
