Letter from the Principal

Tiger Families,

Happy 4th of July!

I hope all of you are enjoying your summer and time with family and friends.

Do you enjoy painting? St. Teresa School is in need of volunteers to help spruce up a few places. Bring your favorite paint brush or roller and join us on July 24th at 9am to paint three bathrooms, and a hallway. We look forward to seeing you there!

Thank you to everyone who filled out the Grading Scale Survey this past spring. Your opinion matters!

St. Teresa School is looking for groups/families to volunteer to weed, water, and overall help with the clean up of the back of the school by the Parish Center. The goal is if we all work together and keep up with it monthly then the task will not be so great for a few.

Please click on the link below to sign up to volunteer for a month.


If you are planning on returning to St. Teresa for the 2023-2024 school year, please register ASAP.

As always, we thank you for sharing your student with us. We appreciate your trust, support, and partnership.
