From the Principal's Office...
With the continuing news of violence in our society and especially those instances of violence that occur in schools, please know that we take our responsibility to provide a safe environment for learning very seriously. On April 24, we will be having a security assessment to take a look at our school from a fresh perspective. They will be reviewing both our physical plant and the systems we have in place for creating and maintaining a safe environment within our school.
We have recently purchased door stops as a part of each classroom's emergency preparedness kits. These stops will be stored in each room and can be used to barricade the doors in case of an emergency situation.
After our assessment, we will share the results and our action plan for addressing any areas of concern. If you have questions, please don't hesitate to reach out either to me or to a member of our LCAB.
In the meantime, we wish a quiet and restful spring break to each and every one of you. We will look forward to seeing you on April 10!
St. Therese, Sts. Cyril and Methodius, pray for us!

We have preschool days that are getting close to full for next fall. If you are planning on re-enrolling for preschool for the 2023-2024 school year, please consider completing that process sooner rather than later. Waiting may mean we are not able to grant you your first choice of days.
We have opened applications for new students and re-enrollment for returning students. Getting accurate numbers helps greatly as we plan for the coming school year.
We do have financial support available, so, please, reach out if we can help!
