Welcome to St. Theresa Catholic School
I hope you have had a wonderful and restful summer holiday. It is with heartfelt anticipation and excitement that we look forward to the 2016-2017 school year. We welcome all of our family and friends to the school with open and caring arms. We would like to especially welcome our new St. Theresa Tigers and families to our wonderful school community and we would like to thank you for allowing us to serve and teach your amazing children. The school and the classrooms are set up and prepared for great learning. The custodians and staff have worked diligently at making both the school and classrooms warm and inviting for our students. The staff has many great activities planned for this year and this school year promises to have many memorable and exciting opportunities for your children. This year we have some new and welcomed additions to our staff and student body and look forward to the new friendships and experiences they will bring to our caring environment.
Our Dual Track School offers many unique and diverse opportunities. We host many programs such as the Early Learning Kindergarten Program, French Immersion and Extended French Programs, The S.A.I.N.T. Movement, Math Leadership, and our Student Leadership Team that plan many activities for our students. Our Parent Council meets regularly to help enrich and support our education and always looks forward to new faces. We are constantly looking for ways to engage and support our students, and welcome new and interesting ideas through student, parent and community voice.
It is our goal to celebrate our rich diversity and create a learning culture that embraces the development of the whole child. Our school prides itself on encouraging all students to meet their academic, physical and spiritual potential. We want them to explore and investigate their many God-given talents and gifts. We are proud to celebrate our Catholic Faith, traditions and the spirit of giving that is created through many opportunities and relationships with our Faith community. We welcome you to join us for our monthly celebrations of Faith.
As parents, you play an important role in your child’s education. We look forward to working closely with you and value your partnership. Communication is both a valuable and important factor in student success. If you have any questions or concerns please do not hesitate to contact the school (teachers or myself).
I look forward to working closely with you and invite you to call if you would like to share some great ideas or would like to simply say a friendly hello.
Yours In Education,
