Beach Day Reminder!

Hey Tigers,

This is a reminder that it’s beach day tomorrow!

Also, if you have a great hat you like or a sports jersey, you can wear that too!

Our Grade 8’s missed “decades day” and “wacky hair day” and the entire school is invited to participate in this tomorrow as well.

In other words, BE CREATIVE!!!

Go Tigers!

Let’s see which class will have the highest participation!


Covid-19 Self-Assessment- Every day please

St. Teresa Families,

Please make sure you are doing the COVID-19 assessment for each child who attends St. Teresa School each day before sending them to school.

If a student is not feeling well, please keep him/her home.

Here is the link- it only takes a minute but is so very important. Please bookmark this link if you haven’t already for easier access.

COVID-19 Daily School Self-Assessment 

We know how difficult it must have been to not see family and friends outside your “bubble” this past weekend, especially at Easter,  and we really appreciate all you are doing to keep our students and staff safe every day!

St. Teresa School Update

Good evening St. Teresa Families,

We hope all our families had a blessed Easter Sunday! He is Risen!

This is just a note that there is no school for students on Monday, April 5th. The students will return on Tuesday, April 6th.  April Break will be from Monday, April 12th to Friday, April 16th, 2021. No school or extended day for our students during this time.

This upcoming Friday, April 9th is “Beach Day” at St. Teresa!

Our Grade 8 students missed “Wacky Hair” and “Decades Day”, so we encourage all our students and staff to revisit these two days this Friday as well as Beach Day! The students can wear their favourite sports jersey and a hat as well! Bring out all your creativity! Let’s see which class has the highest participation!

Go Tigers!
