Letter from Principal

Dear Families,

I am delighted you have chosen to partner with St. Theresa Catholic School. For the last sixty years our parish school has provided an outstanding education in faith formation and academics. We are a community built on service to others. With education as the mission of our parish, the strongest assets within our growing community remain the children we serve. Evident by the achievements of our outstanding alumni who go on to become leaders in business, medicine, education, law and ministry, we continue to extend our hands.  We are all part of this St. Theresa family working together to produce optimistic, independent, compassionate, life-long learners and leaders in our faith.

I pray in thanks each day for the energetic and talented employees of St. Theresa. Our wonderful staff members embody the spirit of St. Theresa in the smallest daily sacrifice and by putting in the extra effort it takes to get the job done so our children have a better experience. Our teachers support the partnership between parents as primary educators. They enliven each child’s natural curiosity with enriching lessons and sensory experiences. With seamless integration of technology our students are prepared for twenty-first century communication. And most importantly, faith integration is ongoing as our teachers lead by example guiding students toward developing strong moral compasses.

Finally, to you, the parents; thank you for your generosity in time, talents and resources. The volunteer hours you spend in the classroom, the donations of supplies and food preparation, and charitable gifts you make both to the school and to the community at-large do not go unnoticed. I speak for the entire St. Theresa staff in saying we would not accomplish what we do without your help. Thank you for entrusting us with the gifts your children bring each day – for entrusting us to mold and sculpt their minds and enrich their souls in the image of Christ. I am humbled.

With Prayers,
Ellen Stemler
