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!

“When you choose Catholic education, it is a sacrifice, but also the greatest gift you can ever give your child.  Jesus is built in to their daily activities, curriculum, sporting events, holidays, and Holy days.  When you choose St. Teresa School, your child has the opportunity to thrive in smaller class sizes and learn from a talented, caring staff while having access to state of the art technology. I continue to be amazed each year when a read in the paper that one of our alums is graduating first or second in their classes.  To me, this is not a mere coincidence—it is proof that St. Teresa School provides a spring board for excellence in education and in life.  My two children have benefitted greatly from their beginnings at St. Teresa.”
