Important RE Information for Parents and Guardians:

Visit our Webpage for Information about the RE Program

Visitors Are Welcome in RE!
Children are welcome to be our guests up to three times before we require registration for the RE program. Come check us out: we look forward to introducing your child to great teachers and new friends this year in our borrowed Waldorf space.

New Procedure: Sign-In Clipboard for Nursery-2nd Grade
For safety reasons, our youngest children must be signed in and out of the RE program at Waldorf each week. Please use clipboards by classroom doors. We’re also trying a “High Five Goodbye” this year for these little ones. Teachers can give you details.

Feed Your Children, Please
Our lovely borrowed space at Waldorf this year precludes our use of snacks during RE Classes. Parents, please be sure your children have a good breakfast before they arrive on Sundays. They will be welcome to join us for Coffee Hour treats after the service.

Financial Assistance Available
If paying for religious education registration would be a hardship, please contact Sarah Garner, Church Administrator, at sarah.garner@follen.org to waive or negotiate this fee. No one will ever be turned away from RE participation due to financial challenges!
