Welcome back everyone and to those that are new to our school, WELCOME WELCOME WELCOME!

As many are aware, the Family Guild is similar to what is traditionally knowns as the PTA.  Our role is primarily to raise monies for extra projects that the school wants to offer; to coordinate fun events and activities for our students and families, and to communicate the needs of our families with the schools’ administration.

All parents are invited to join and be active members of the Family Guild.  The Guild has a Governing board that consists of many dedicated parents that are here to help you transition into STS.  We have several committees designed to coordinate events and meet the needs of our families, all of whom you can meet at one of our welcome to school events.

To give you some support and guidance as the school year begins, we will have a welcome center set up in the blessed John XXII Pastoral Center (outside the school yard at 115 Winsor Road) on Monday, September 9th and Tuesday, September 10th from 7:45-10:00am where you can meet the family guild board and other parents.  We hope that you will stop in after you drop your children off and have a cup of coffee/tea and some conversation.  The Center will also be open on September 12th for the Pre-K 3 parents after your children heads into class with Mrs. Simon at noon.

In addition, we have also scheduled our Back to School Kick – Off Event/ First Family Guild Meeting for September 19th at 7:30pm in Conran Hall (aka the gymnasium).  We hope that you will join us to see what is in store for the school year and to learn about the different groups/ societies St. Teresa Parish has to offer.  There will be chances to win door prizes, become a class mom or dad, volunteer to help with various events, and most importantly to meet new friends, or say hello to old ones and have some fun!

We have quick and informative evening meetings each month in the lower church hall beginning at 7:30pm.  TO accommodate for varying schedules, we alternate between Tuesday and Thursday evenings.  We also have scheduled some morning meetings throughout the school year.  A complete schedule will be given to you during the first week of school.

We have also scheduled many fun events for parents and their children this year including our annual Health and Safety Fair, a Mother and Daughter Tea, a Father and Daughter Dance, a Mother and Son Dance, a Father and Son Sport Outing, Our Annual Christmas Fair, the Basket Auction and so much more.  A calendar of events will also be distributed and posted to our Facebook Page as well as here.
