Come one, come all to the Spring Carnival and Showcase at St. Teresa School in Ossian! We would love to bring families together for some fun and fellowship throughout our four parishes. Tickets for the games are 25 cents per ticket or 5 for a $1. Walking tacos, nachos, and drinks will be available to purchase while you peruse student work in the lower hallway and the kids play the games.

Administrative Professionals Day- April 27

Administrative professionals: they organize, assist, plan, solve, simplify, coordinate, and a billion other amazing things we don’t even know about to keep the workplace running smoothly. So Administrative Professionals Day is the perfect opportunity to tell Mrs.
Bullerman, Mrs. Schmitt, and Mr. Teslow how important they are to our schools, childcare center, and our wrap around program. All your hard work doesn't go unnoticed. Thank you so much!
