It is with anticipation and enthusiasm that I welcome you to a new and exciting school year. The custodians and staff have worked diligently at making both the school and classrooms warm and welcoming for our St. Theresa school families. We hope you have had an enjoyable and relaxing summer and are prepared for the school year that promises to have many memorable and exciting learning 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 school offers many programs such as the Early Learning Kindergarten Program, French Immersion and Extended French Programs, The S.A.I.N.T. Movement and our Leadership Team (Student Body) 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.
It is our goal to celebrate our rich diversity and create a learning culture that embraces the development of the whole child. 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. Volunteers are always needed and appreciated. If you would like to volunteer and would like further information on how you can help our school community, feel free to call or drop in.
Please take the time to review the many important documents that your child will bring home this week such as the Code of Behavior, Medical Forms, The School Year Calendar, etc.
I look forward to working closely with you and invite you to call if you have any questions, would like to share some ideas or would like to simply say a friendly hello.
Yours truly in Education,
