ISKCON of Connecticut


Dear parents,

Hare Krishna. All glories to Srila Prabhupada. As many of you know, ISKCON of Hartford has been offering Hare Krishna Sunday School for kids in the age range of 5 to 14. While the attending children have been learning about Krishna consciousness in a fun-filled and hands-on atmosphere, we are exploring ways to systematize and add more structure to the Sunday school to further enhance their experience, and inculcate pride and respect in our Vedic culture. Following the model adopted successfully in many of our other ISKCON temples, we plan to implement the following enhancements to the Sunday school.

  1. The Sunday School Teachers will develop and implement a structured curriculum with detailed lesson plans for the Sunday school.
  2. In addition to learning about the Vedic culture (through stories, slokas, and exposure to Vedic literature), the children will engage in a variety of activities such as plays and dramas, arts and crafts projects, and temple service. Through this holistic approach, students will develop positive, spiritual friendships with other children and learn how to make Krishna Consciousness part of their everyday life.
  3. The cost for each participating child is $25/year. This will cover the costs for printing materials, materials arts and crafts, and other school supplies. Only registered students will be allowed to participate in the class.
  4. Parents must make every effort to ensure that the students come to class on time.

In order for us to successfully implement these changes, we need support, encouragement and participation from the parents. We need a minimum of about 7 kids to register to participate.

As we plan to start the new curriculum in the month of October, we request you to respond within the next week if you are interested in registering your children.

We hope you will take advantage of this opportunity for your children. For more information please contact us. We will be happy to answer any questions or concerns you may have.
