Teachers (2011-2012 roster)
We are blessed in our community to have conscientious and responsible teachers. They can only do their work when your children are brought to Sunday School on a regular basis. Of course, they cannot in any sense carry out the full load of religious instruction. The home is the best teacher. Your home must reflect the church. Your home must be “the light of Christ” which enlightens all men.
An Orthodox Christian consciousness begins from the earliest days of childhood by the example of the parents and by the home atmosphere in general. As a parent, you are encouraged to learn with your children and to apply what you learn into your daily life and home life. You are further encouraged to go beyond what your children may learn so as to strengthen your personal relationship with Jesus and your personal prayer life. You can do this through reading the materials available in “Our Cathedral Library, Book store, The Saint George Greek Orthodox Website, and the Archdioceses website”.
Regarding your children’s Religious Education in our Cathedral you can participate as follows:
a. Taking an active interest in your child’s Religious Education by encouraging promptness and regular attendance each Sunday.
b. By discussing Religious Feast Days, and important events
during the week while at home.
c. By making application of their lesson in their daily life.
Sunday School Schedule
Divine Liturgy begins at 10:00 a.m. promptly. All Students along with their parents are kindly asked to attend the Divine Liturgy. The Church Leaders of our Faith believe that being part of the Church Service is very crucial. When we are participants of our Faith we are given the opportunity to grow Spiritually, and we are able to better understand the teachings of the church when we are in Sunday School.
2. During Holy Communion, all Sunday School Students that have prepared themselves to partake of the Holy Sacrament will proceed forward for Holy Communion under the direction of Father Tom. All Students not receiving Holy Communion will go directly to their Sunday School Classrooms under the guidance and supervision of the Sunday School Directors, & our Junior/Senior Girls.
3. All Parents are to remain in the Cathedral until Father Tom’s dismissal.
4. The Sunday School Students and Staff will be greeted by an acolyte in the Educational building downstairs. The acolyte will be holding a bowl with andideron. This will allow all Students & Teachers an opportunity to receive their andideron.
5. Students will then proceed to their classrooms.
6. All Students will be provided with refreshments in class.
7. At 12:15 all students will be dismissed.

Attendance Policy (Updated 8-5-12)
Juniors and Seniors (11th and 12th graders) will meet in the teen room in the gym.
If a student misses Sunday School at our church due to being out of town and he/she attends a worship service in another city, credit will be given for that Sunday, PROVIDED the student brings in a dated bulletin signed with authorization from the visited church. This notification must be turned in to the Sunday School office within 2 weeks of the absence.
A student may also make-up classes on Family Sundays . The student must sign and date the attendance book provided in the narthex to receive credit. Students must sign in BEFORE 10:30 a.m. to get credit!
Altar boys must also sign in using the book in the altar, especially if they are substituting for another altar boy.
Policies for Teachers
Teachers must arrive early and attend the Divine Liturgy. This will serve as a wonderful example to our children that promptness is encouraged and important. Teachers, you are truly one of the students’ major role models. They look up to you, and worshipping in the Cathedral where the students can see you reinforces your love to God for them.
Teachers, we truly appreciate your Loyalty and Devotion, and we would like in every way possible to lessen your pressures, because we are aware that you are all involved in your daily careers, routines, and some of you are also parents. This will allow you to spend more time on preparing your lesson plans. Teachers, please be aware that our students are very intelligent and tend to grasp if teachers are not prepared.
The Superintendents will have many resourceful materials that they will pass out to you each month. We would like for you to please implement the materials along with your lessons. The materials that you will receive will have enough copies for all students on their level, and they will be mostly about special feast days, saints days, and major ecclesiastical holidays.
