Letter from the Principal

Tiger Families,

Happy National Best Friends Day! I hope all of you are enjoying your summer!

We have lots of exciting things happening at St. Teresa School, thanks to our many volunteers. SHOUT OUT to Men's Club, as they repaired the front of the school. No more wet socks going into the building after it rains. THANK YOU MEN'S CLUB!!

St. Teresa School is grateful to have dedicated volunteers. That is why we need you! Do you like to paint, or know someone who does. We are looking for individuals to help spruce up the school with a new coat of paint.

Are you a talented artist who paints murals and would like to give back to St. Teresa School? PLEASE REACH OUT to nicole.green@stteresatigers.org.

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.


Did you know that St. Teresa received a grant to buy new curriculum? That is correct. We will be purchasing all new Science and Social Studies Curriculum for the 2023-2024 school year.

If you are planning on returning to St. Teresa for the 2023-2024 school year, please send in your registration form asap!

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