Periodically, we assess Sunday School classes to see what we’re doing right and what we need to do better. The following is our assessment tool for Children Sunday School classes.
Current teachers: Answer and/or make comments on each question. Use the COMMENTS BOX on this page to submit your answers or suggestions. (Comments will be reviewed by the Christian Education staff, but will NOT be posted or made public.)
Teachers in orientation: Read and familiarize yourself with each question. Think about what you will do so you can answer each question in a positive way. (You are welcome to make comments or ask questions in the COMMENTs BOX below. Comments will be reviewed by the Christian Education staff but will NOT be posted or made public.)
