For the third year, Saint Therese School is the recipient of a generous gift of $40,267 from The Barsema Educational Foundation. The gift last year was used for marketing, funding part of the Annual Scholarship Dinner Dance, field trips and special events, office renovations and library books. Please keep our benefactors in your prayers. We are most grateful for their generosity.

Included with this letter are the results of the Iowa Test of Basic Skills for your child or children. The narrative on the side of the report gives you specific information about your child’s performance and areas for improvement. If you have any questions concerning the results, please do not hesitate to contact the office or your child’s teacher.

We are seeking volunteer help with the Thanksgiving Feast. A flyer was in the family envelope. If you plan on attending, please make a reservation and pay with your child’s order. We cannot honor walk-ins.

The students, faculty and staff of Saint Therese wish you a healthy and blessings filled Thanksgiving.
