Dear Tiger Families,

Thank-you for another wonderful year of learning and growing together! We are very proud of the accomplishments we have made this year, and we wish all of you blessings for a restful and relaxing summer!

Two staff notes that are not included in the letter coming home in the letter with report cards on Tuesday are included here.

First, we say farewell to Mrs. Jewer who will be transferring to St. Nicholas in September. We thank her for all her efforts with our youngest students over the past 2 years and we wish  Mrs. Jewer all the best. A special thank-you for helping to lead the choir this year as well!

We also say farewell to Mrs. Schaefer, who will be moving to Holy Rosary School in September. We thank-you for the last 8 years of service to the youngest students at St. Teresa. A special thank-you for all your efforts in the extended day program as well. Your cheerful approach and flexibility are appreciated!

We wish Mrs. Jewer and Mrs. Shaefer all  of God’s blessings as they continue in their journeys in education!

Introducing…Our New Creative Playground Design!

St. Tigers Families and Friends!

The plan for the new creative playground was shared with the students and staff today. To say it was accepted enthusiastically is an understatement!

Please find attached the 3 views for the creative playground plan. The installation date is set for mid to late summer and is expected to be completed before school begins in the fall.

Thank-you for the many years of fundraising that has gone into this project! It has been a complete community effort from Day 1, and we are blessed to have a Parent Community with the support that’s been given over the years. The 3 “draftings” will be placed in the hallway as well for students to see.
