Did you know that St. Teresa's flea market raised over $30,000 last year for our school? For those who have participated in the past, they know it takes a lot of hard work from a lot of people to pull together the flea market before the sale even starts!

There is a great team from the parish and school who work together to make it happen but we are in search of additional leadership. We have veteran Adam Miller as a co-chair whose expertise can guide any new leaders. Would you consider being a chair for the flea market?

“We believe the St. Teresa faculty strives to help each child reach their potential in a loving, faith-filled environment.  The connections students feel to their teachers provide a foundation for academic success.  The extra-curricular options give students the chance to have a variety of experiences, and there is a warm, team-like camaraderie among the parents.”
