With the weather headed our way, it is a good time to double-check that your contact information is up to date. When the weather brings unsafe travel conditions, you can follow the local television stations for information about school closings. As a general rule, St. Therese closes when Wayland Union closes for the day. Once we receive notification from Wayland, we will also post the school closing on our website, and Facebook page and send out a parent alert from our student information system.
While on the topic of being safe, we have received 100 Covid tests for distribution to our families and communities. If you would like Covid tests for your family, especially after holiday travels, you may request them in the school office.
I will be out of school recuperating next week. Please feel free to email or text me with any questions or concerns. I will get back to you as soon as I am able. Mrs. Orlowski will be the teacher in charge while I am out.
Please know that when I count my Thanksgiving blessings, your children and our St. Therese families are on my list!
St. Therese, Sts. Cyril and Methodius, pray for us!

Annual Pie Sale
The virtual auction during Catholic Schools Week is a big hit and raises money for our Home and School group. They support so many of the activities and extras throughout the year. In order to have donations for the auction, we need to start now. Our urgent need right now is for someone to put together the donor letters. We have letters, envelopes, and stamps. If you are willing to help make it happen for our school, let us know!
