Catholic Schoolhouse Information

Welcome to Catholic Schoolhouse  – Greensburg

We’re glad you’re here to learn a little more about our chapter!

Day/Time: We will be meeting on Monday mornings from 8:45 AM- 12:30PM beginning in September 2019.

Order of the Day: Our day will begin with morning prayer, chorus and the Pledge of Allegiance.  Children will then move into their age appropriate academics class where they will learn and review memory work, enjoy hands on art and science, and a snack.  At noon, we will all join back together for closing prayer and announcement.  We can then share lunch and fellowship before heading home.

*If you have a child in grades 4-6 we will be offering an add-on IEW (Institute for Excellence in Writing) class after lunch.

Books/Supplies: Each family is responsible for purchasing one Year 3 Tour Guide from the Catholic Schoolhouse Store or through your local chapter at a bulk order discount. Once registered, families will be given information on bulk order dates and discounts.  Other optional but helpful resources to purchase are the Year 3 History Cards and Year 3 Music Memory Work CD.  Both are also available at the Catholic Schoolhouse Store.
