Happy New Year and welcome back to school! We hope that everyone was able to spend lots quality time with family, friends and loved ones over the Christmas break. Our students will be excited to return to school, to see their friends and share their holiday stories. We will be working on re-establishing routines as we get back on track with learning. Our First Term will be quickly coming to an end, and teachers will be writing the first term report cards throughout the month of January. We wish you all the best in 2019!

Umbrella Project Update

Welcome to a new year and a new Umbrella Skill at St. Teresa School. We are excited to be kicking off the year by focusing on developing our ability to be more resilient. Resilience is our ability to bounce back from challenges that we face and to come out stronger on the other side. Part of being more resilient is to remain focused on self-care and compassion. Ongoing self-care helps us to prepare to address challenges in our lives with the necessary energy and resources to survive and thrive. Stay tuned for an announcement about a parent evening at St. Teresa School featuring Dr. Jen in later January!

Cold Weather


With the winter months approaching, winter safety is an important consideration. Children should always come to school dressed appropriately for the outside each day. Even in extreme cold when they might be kept inside, there is always the consideration of coming to and from school, as well as the risk of an emergency procedure where we must evacuate the building. Students will be reminded of the snow rules when they return to school. We want students to have lots of fun playing in the snow but to be safe at the same time! Students should also follow the direction of the supervision staff about playing on snow piles. Sometimes these piles will be deemed off-limits. School winter safety policies are designed to protect everyone on school property from injury.


During periods of severe weather, your best sources of information about possible school closing and/or school bus cancellation is the School Board Website or local radio stations.
