WELCOME TO FIRST GRADE RELIGIOUS ED
In first grade we have two teachers that will teach the 4:30 and 6 p.m. class. Read more about them below!
About Ms. Grace:
I am currently a sophomore at the University of Nebraska-Omaha studying Marketing and minoring in Non-Profit Management. This year, I am involved in many things at St. Roberts. I am a Youth Advisor for our High School Youth Group, am coaching a 5th volleyball team, and teaching Religious Education. This is my first year teaching Religious Education, so I am very excited to see what this year will bring!
What This Year Looks Like:
This year, we will be learning basic prayers and will be beginning to lay the foundation for First Reconciliation and for the rest of the student’s faith journey! The students will be involved in many activities throughout this year, and I will be utilizing our beautiful St. Roberts campus (when weather permits) to help foster the students’ appreciation for their faith.
What to Bring:
Please have students bring a folder each week for any activities or crafts we decide to do. These materials are not needed on Mass days.
Thank you and I look forward to this exciting year!
Ms. Grace Gustafson
My name is Lori Pritchard. My husband, Tom, and I have been parishioners at St. Roberts for 20 years. We have raised five children who attended St. Roberts five-day school. Our four boys attended Creighton Prep and our daughter attended Marian. I work for Eli Lilly and Co., but felt I was called to become more involved with my parish and this is what lead me to the religious education program! My kids have been active members of the youth group at St. Roberts for many years so I have witnessed firsthand what a positive effect St. Roberts has on kids!
I am excited to teach first grade and share my Catholic faith with your child. We will have lots of fun while learning about Jesus through activities, stories and simple discussions. By the end of this year, I hope your child feels loved and knows they are a unique gift from God. Topics we will cover this school year include: Circle of Grace, Who is Jesus, Introduction to basic prayers, appropriate Mass behavior and what it means to be a Catholic. Any materials your child needs will be provided!
Thank you for sending your child to the religious education program at St. Roberts and WELCOME to what I hope will be a fantastic year!!
