I teach Catholic Religious Education (CRE). I've taught the same group of kids for the last 4 years. We've added a few and lost a few through moves. But, what I don't get is, why register your child for CRE if your child isn't going to attend. (I had one child registered for kindergarten and 1st grade who never showed up but as soon as 2nd grade arrived, he was there.

I think a lot of people these days are lacking in the manners department. Nobody seems to RSVP anymore, and then (if they do) many seem to forget.

Do the parents get any kind of reminders about the classes? Maybe sending out a reminder e-mail a week before and then the night before could help. Ian's school does this with a lot of their events, and I know I would have forgotten had the e-mails not been sent.
