RELIGIOUS EDUCATION  May 19, 2019

There is an extended OWL Class today (10:30-2PM) There will be Pizza.

There will be no “Time for All Ages” in the Service today so all classes will begin at 10:30.

EXPLORERS Spirit of Adventure (K-3rd Grade) meet in the lower level of Chapin. This year they are exploring Unitarian Universalist principles through a lively curriculum.  Today’s class will learn about Unitarian Beatrix Potter (1866–1943). Beatrix Potter wrote and illustrated The Tale of Peter Rabbit and many other animal stories. She was famous for her “little books”, her illustrations, and as a conservationist.  The class will learn about her life and read one or two of her “little books”. They will have a chance to make their own little books and sketches of animals.

HOGWARTS ONEONTA (4-6th Grade) will begin in their classroom in the lower level of Chapin. This year they are exploring Unitarian Universalist values and principles though the lens of the wizarding world of Harry Potter. It isn’t necessary to have read the books or to even like Harry Potter to enjoy this class. If the weather is nice they will go to the backyard of the nearby Olympia Brown House (16 Ford Ave) to play Quidditch. If not, they will look over their year together and pick a favorite lesson to do again.

OWL (Our Whole Lives) (6-9th GRADE) Is offered only for those who have preregistered. There is class today from 10:30 to 2 PM. This is an extended class as well as the final class for OWL. There will be pizza for lunch. OWL is a comprehensive sexuality curriculum that focuses on self-worth, sexual health, responsibility, justice, and inclusivity. It provides a safe and comfortable environment in which to learn and explore issues of sexuality as well as providing knowledgeable, trained leaders. Because of the sensitive nature of the class, guests are not allowed. If you are in 6-9th Grade and not registered for OWL, you can attend either the YRUU, Hogwarts Oneonta, or today’s service in the sanctuary. 

YRUU (Young Religious Unitarian Universalists) (9-12th GRADE) plan their own schedule. Please ask or contact Susan Ryder if you are interested in joining YRUU.
