Dear Friend of St. Teresa School,
As we opened the doors of our school this fall, there was a great sense of renewal in the air. Over the summer, we renovated the middle school science lab and purchased an iPad mobile computer lab for our younger students. These wonderful projects, and others in the past five years, are truly reinvigorating our school. It is a joy to see the students using these new tools, which is only possible because people like you generously support St. Teresa School’s annual fund.
The Second Century Fund, now in its 3rd year, helps us to keep tuition relatively stable while still purchasing classroom equipment and making much-needed upgrades to our building. This year, I am encouraging donors to consider directing their support toward facilities enhancement because it is essential that we maintain an atmosphere that stimulates the learning process. One example of how your support can help our school is in the replacement of classroom carpeting, which has not been done in many years.
Of course, you always can allocate part of your gift for tuition assistance as it remains an ongoing priority. This year almost 100% of our students have re-enrolled, which can be credited, in part, to tuition assistance from generous friends of the school.
Your gifts make a tremendous difference in helping us to offer the children of our parish and community the best possible education. I thoughtfully ask you to consider making an investment in their future by making a tax-deductible gift to the Second Century Fund today using the enclosed commitment form.
On behalf of our students, thank you for supporting the mission of St. Teresa School.
