Class donations– The class donations are completely optional and are not mandatory- you give what you want!
We were told that some parents were concerned with the reminders and that the request was made so close to the holidays, etc. We let parents know about this in mid-September and had a great response from families throughout October. The collection process has always been left to the class parents who would keep a running list of who contributed and send reminders.
If you have a concern or issue please direct them to the HSA board and NOT other parents.

This year the HSA is trying a new fundraising event so that families can purchase cheesecakes, cookies and chocolate, which will arrive before Christmas time! Please see the brochure that was sent home and is located below for items that you can order. If you do not have the order form, you can use the one attached and then submit to the HSA. Remember all of these delicious items will help to fundraise for the HSA, which in turn is for the students! Please email us at StTeresaHSA@gmail.com if you have any questions!

Thank you and Merry Christmas!
I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who helped to make the 2016 St. Teresa Christmas Fair a huge success! I think we achieved our goal to make the fair more about the children while still raising funds for the school. I am excited to let you know the preliminary numbers are in and the fair raised a little over $22,500!
Congratulations to the winner of our Winter Windowland Contest – The Duffy Family – who decorated the Disney Character Window. Thank you also to all the participants – with your help the gym really was transformed to a Christmas Wonderland!
This year’s Fair would not have been a success without your help – whether you volunteered to work at the fair, donated to the fair, helped us at our craft/build it nights, baked some delicious treats for us to sell or simply attended – I truly thank all of you. The HSA is working on a complete list of all the volunteers/contributors and will email/post a complete thank you list on the HSA Website/Facebook next week. Again, thank you all so very much.
There are some people who went above and beyond that I would like to make a special mention of – not only did they volunteer/donate – they spent weeks helping with crafts, building games, wrapping prizes, stuffing straws, getting donations and gave above and beyond to this fair to make it what it was –
The Eisenhardt Family, The LoPorto Family, The Bilotti Family, The Hutchinson Family, The Duffy Family, The Gofas Family, The Angelopoulos Family, The DePeppo Family, The Mattarelliano Family, The Bock Family, James & Mary Lyons, Theresa & Lincoln Hession, and The Mascolo Family.
Thank you to Monsignor Belford and the Holy Name Society for allowing us to share the spectacular tree lighting event with the Christmas Fair. Saturdayevening was extra special because of this and really brought the love of family and friends together in this blessed season.
I look forward to working together with everyone in 2017 to continue to have fun events like this for our St. Teresa Families to enjoy and spend time together with each other.
Here’s to the Merriest of Christmases and a Happy and Healthy 2017!
