St. Joseph Catholic Church
(One Form Per Family)
It is expected that your child makes a sincere commitment to this program. The cooperation of each individual in the group is imperative. It is, therefore, necessary to establish a discipline policy that encourages positive behavior and cooperation. The procedure to maintain a positive environment is as follows:
1. If the behavior of the student is disruptive, the catechist will speak privately to the him/her to give him/her the chance to change the behavior.
2. If the behavior continues, the child will be sent to the office where they will be given a discipline slip to take home to be signed and returned the following class.
3. If there is no change in either attitude or behavior, the parent will be contacted and asked to accompany their child to the next class.
4. If it is impossible for the child to change the behavior, home study options will be presented.
The atmosphere of the meeting space and the curriculum are open and interactive. This necessitates that the students be considerate and respectful of one another. The parish is blessed to have the caring volunteers who generously give of their time and talent to our youth. Expecting an acceptable quality of behavior allows for the spiritual growth of all who are involved in the program.
