St. John Vianney Middle School FREP

Staying on task with SJV MS FREP Coursework

WEEK THREE REMINDERS

This month's focus: THE TRINITY


It's hard to believe we are soon approaching the third meeting of FREP for the year and the coming of Thanksgiving, the season of Advent and then of course the Christmas holidays. Please take time to remember:


  1. Before December 1st, hopefully students and their families have continued to spend a minimum of 9 1/2 minutes each day on FREP.
  2. Suggestions for making sure things are done include:
  • Write at least one of the three journal entries per week
  • Read at least one chapter per week in the text book and complete any homework activities parents feel their children would benefit from doing
  • This month, students are to complete the litany of saints project as described in the homework documents sent home on November 3rd.
  • Review, reflect and think about what students have been reading about and discussing with their families
  • Parents: Be sure to complete the FREP "Monthly Objective Document" and initial it. This document must be brought to class December 1st for accurate record keeping as required The Diocese of Lansing.

About that homework...

Since time between monthly FREP meetings is limited, it is much more valuable to approach completing reading and homework in phases. Several students mentioned last monthy they did on not approach their FREP homework until the very end of October. Some said they tried to complete all of their homework the day and evening before FREP.

For your convenience, the original documents sent home with students and families about homework due on Sunday, December 1, 2013 is included below.
