We will be starting a new religious education program for our nursery and elementary school aged children starting in September. It is a Montessori-based program called “Spirit Play” (read more about it at: http://www.spiritplay.net/ ). In Spirit Play adult volunteers are not “teachers” but storytellers or doorkeepers and the spirit of program is one of discovery, wonder and play. It will be a great addition to our programming for children and I am confident volunteers will be enriched by this program too.
On Saturday, August 4th from 9:00am to 12:00pm I will lead a workshop to prepare volunteers for Spirit Play. A sign-up sheet will be placed in the RE Wing. You may also e-mail me to sign up. I strongly encourage anyone who is interested in volunteering (in any capacity) to attend this workshop and also encourage anyone who is simply curious about this program to attend. It will be fun and a great way to discover what some of our children will be doing next year in their classrooms.Rev. Pam (email: firstname.lastname@example.org)
