Congratulations to our 8th Grade graduates!

The 8th grade class enjoyed - as proclaimed by their class t-shirts - an "Extreme 16" month of events in May! The month kicked off with a class trip to Washington, D.C. Fun was had and miles were walked exploring the great sites of our nation's capital.

With Confirmation on May 12th, our 8th graders were filled with the Spirit and solidified as adult members of our Catholic faith. A playful performance of "Almost History" put smiles on faces of the students, teachers, and parents who were in the audience for the May 13th play debut.

The traditional Sending Forth Mass took place on May 25th, where we as a school wished the 8th graders blessings and a bright future. Graduation capped off the festivities for this very special class.

May you be blessed in your journey.
Be brave and be bold.
Remember your times here,
And always stay gold.

Warmest congratulations to the St. Teresa of Avila Class of 2016 and their families! We will miss you!

St. Teresa of Avila School Students and Families celebrated the retirement of four cherished teachers on May 26, 2016.

Festivities kicked off in the school gym with a standing ovation for Mrs. Leibach, Mrs. Pastor, Mrs. DeMario, and Mrs. Yokitis. These teachers have given a combined total of 118 years to our school. That is a legacy!

A science skit led by current 5th graders started the show. Mrs. Leibach was awarded a distinguished medal for her 37 years of keeping kids well versed in the scientific method, and marking tremendous success in the PJAS competitions throughout her tenure.

Our resident Mouseketeer, Mrs. Pastor, with 35 years of service, was treated to a musical tribute by her current 3rd graders. Adorned in various Mickey Mouse ears, the class delivered a crowd pleasing performance, singing "Who’s the leader of the grade, that’s made for you and me? M-R-S P-A-S-T-O-R, you see!" to tune of the old Mickey Mouse Club March. It was a hit!

Mrs. DeMario was honored for her 29 years of service with some sign language and lots of love as her 2nd graders presented the song, "Bless You More" on stage. The tissues had to come out!

Thanks to the energy, dance moves, and jump roping skills of the 8th graders, Mrs. Yokitis could see that her 17 years as our gym teacher paid off. These kids were fit and fun as they showcased a medley of athletic moves to an 80s-themed "Jump" musical compilation.

Rounding out the show was a beautiful rendition of "You Are the Voice of the Living God" by sisters, Elizabeth & Mary Evankovich, and Breanna Byce, all St. Teresa alums, who lent their beautiful voices to this hymn for their beloved former teachers.

Many alumni and their parents were also on hand for this memorable gathering. The message was clear: As these lovely teachers finish their time with us as, the message of faith and love that they shared over the years lives on in the lives of the students they taught.

Thank you Mrs. Pastor, Mrs. DeMario, Mrs. Leibach, & Mrs. Yokitis. We treasure you!

“St. Teresa is special because it is a place where my children feel safe and part of a family.  We have met so many wonderful, caring families at this school with the same morals.  It is such a good feeling knowing that my children are treated like family on daily basis.”

—Chrissy Daeschner
