Dear Students and Parents,
Welcome to 7th grade Religious Education at St. Roberts! I hope you all had a great summer and are now ready to begin a fun year of learning and gaining a deeper understanding of your faith.
About Miss Moser
I currently work at St. Pius X/ St. Leo School teaching 4th grade. I also volunteer as a Youth Ministry Advisor at St. Leo and St. Pius. I have a few side gigs as well that consist of business consulting, owning my own small business and refereeing volleyball.
We have an exciting year ahead of us - your journey towards the sacrament of Confirmation begins. Throughout the course of the year, we will be doing various activities and spending some time journaling. My goal is to engage students using a variety of learning techniques, which will hopefully lead to meaningful conversations about our Catholic faith.
Supplies to Bring
Please make sure that students bring a folder and a pen or pencil each week for our activities and journaling opportunities. On days where we are scheduled to attend Mass, students do not need to bring their supplies.
Again, welcome to another new and exciting year at St. Roberts!
Miss Jordan Moser
