P1010167Dear Parents,
 
Happy Feast Day!  During this day we have been reminded, first by Fr. Joe at Mass and then by our First Grade children, that we are "saints in the making."  On this feast of All Saints Day we remember those who once lived on earth and now live forever with God in glory.  Some were mighty and well known.  Many, like our own patroness, St. Teresa, did little things with great love for God.
 
Our First Grade children gave a performance on the saints this afternoon that was flawless.  Each child proudly spoke of their chosen saint as one who loved God, worked hard, and served others.  It was clear that their parents and teacher helped them prepare for this celebration which spoke of the fact that we are all called by God to love and serve in Jesus' name.
 
 P1010190
Whatever your day has brought to your door, know this truth:  STRS is filled with saints in the making and we are proud of these children.  Thank you for sharing your treasure of children with us at STRS.  Our Catholic identity is strong in this place and it is our hope that your children will spiritually enrich your family from their experiences in faith formation in school.

May the Saints intercede for all our families.
 
~Sister Patricia

FORMING MINDS & HEARTS


mathathon2012ST. JUDE MATH-A-THON
Living out our mission of forming minds & hearts for leadership & service to others- St. Teresa School is once again doing our part to help St. Jude Children's Hospital, which provides care for very sick children.  Our students will be collecting sponsors as they complete their Math-a-Thon workbooks.  Every grade has its own booklets, which contain many math problems on that grade's own level.  With your donations, and the children solving problems, this is truly a win-win situation.  While our students sharpen their math skills- St. Jude Children's Hospital can continue to provide care to those children that need it most.  Our school goal this year is to raise $1,500.00.  This event will run from now until Friday, November, 16th.  We thank for you for your generosity,
as you are the driving force behind this wonderful charity.

Students: Get those sponsors and
get those math problems solved!

VOLLEYBALL TOURNAMENT RESULTS:
A few words from a proud Coach:
"The St. Teresa Volleyball team showed the other schools that they are on the rise and a team to challenge the "volleyball power houses". The girls once again showed their skill level is improving, beating the #1 team of the day.[Mt. Carmel]  We beat Mt. Carmel [an undefeated team], showing we have the skill, we just have to refine it.  Although St. Teresa did not advance into the semi - finals, [the other teams] realized we were not the push - overs they thought we would be.
 
As we were leaving the gym, a parent from [an opposing team] grabbed me to share a thought.  He advised that the majority of those in the gym were watching us play the tournament winner-Mt. Carmel.  He said the parents of [an opposing team] found themselves cheering for us because we conduct ourselves with intergrity.  He stated that our attitude made us the crowd favorite and it was great to see us beat the undefeated Mt. Carmel. To me there is no better compliment, than to have a parent from an opposing team, make a positive comment about the demeanor of our daughters."                 ~Coach Boberick
