Welcome to the 2014 - 2015 School Year
On behalf of the staff. I want to welcome all of you to another academically exciting and spiritually renewing school year for St. Therese Catholic School.  Catholic Schools around the United States will be focusing on the theme “Catholic Schools, Communities of Faith, Knowledge, and Service".  We recognize that as a Catholic School we are a community in our own right, but we are also part of the larger communities of home, church, and nation.  Faith, Knowledge and Service are three measures by which any Catholic School including St. Therese can and should be judged.  
 

We will host a Welcome Back to School Social on Sunday evening August 17th at 6:00 pm in the parish hall.  We will have a short presentation and report to our families on our Goals and Objectives as well as a financial summary for the 2013 – 2014 school year.  ACE will again sponsor a “gently” used uniform table for families.  Ice Cream will be served at the end or our meeting,

Our first day for classes is Wednesday, August 20th We will again begin the school year by celebrating Mass at 8:10.  Students will need to dress in Mass uniforms and report to the gym at 8:00 am.  I would like to sincerely invite all parents and families to join us in celebrating as a community the beginning of a new school year.

To assist our Kindergarteners with their transition to school they will be attending half day on Wednesday the 20th, Thursday the 21st, and Friday the 22nd.  On those days Kindergarteners will be dismissed at 11:30 am.  We will also excuse them from our first Mass on Wednesday.  

Pre-School begins Monday, August 25th.

*** Uniform Information ***
As many of you may be aware, we were recently informed that Triggers will no longer be carrying school  uniforms. We have worked quickly to find alternatives to meet our uniform needs.  
 
Three Pueblo stores have stepped up to help St. Therese parents . . .
 
  • The Spirit Store at 4225 North Elizabeth (next to DJ's Steak House) is currently working with the principal to set up the school's embroidery on red, white and navy polo shirts.  They will have a section dedicated to St. Therese uniforms ready on Wednesday, August 13th.  They also have dress shirts, skirts, skorts, slacks and shorts available that are consistent with our dress code.  To ensure that they are representing our school correctly, The Spirit Store will only embroider our crest or logo on garments purchased there.  They will not put our logo on clothing brought in from the outside.  The Spirit Store can be reached at (719) 543-2222.

 

  • Embroidery Plus on 501 West Street (behind the new Judicial Building) will have our polo shirts with our embroidery available in stock Tuesday August 12th.  Embroidery Plus will embroider our logo and crest on garments bought into the store as long as the clothing is new and consistent with our dress code.  Embroidery Plus can be reached at (719) 542-0234.

 

  • Tee’s & K’s Graphics, located 141 South Purcell Blvd in Pueblo West has our polo shirts without the embroidery and is asking that we consider a "hot press" process called Cad Cut.  Tee's & K's can be reached at (719) 248-5653.

 

These companies have been invited to set up tables at our Back to School Social to provide more information and uniform support to our families. 

We know that finding the Wilson Plaid skirts or jumper for Mass could be a problem.  If parents cannot find one for the beginning of school, a navy blue dress skirt will be acceptable until we work through the change in uniform providers.  Please know that the staff is aware of the situation and will accommodate our students.  This should not be a source of stress for our students or our families.

Registration for 2014 - 2015 Streamlined & Still Open
 
This year the Registration process will be much easier for returning families than in past years.  The school’s new student information management system “HeadMaster” will allow parents to re-enroll for the 2014 – 2015 school year on-line.  Once logged onto the parent portal, each family will be able to review and update information as necessary.  Once a family’s profile has been updated, parents will need to follow these steps to re-enroll:

Welcome to St. Therese Catholic School

 

St. Therese Catholic School’s mission is to prepare our students for the academic demands and spiritual challenges of a 21st Century community.   We en  sure academic achievement through a traditional pre-collegiate curriculum integrated within the teachings of Catholic tradition, and built upon the underlying principles of rigor and reason.  St. Therese Catholic School has not adopted "The Common Core" and does not report any student information to any agencies outside of the Diocese of Pueblo.

In addition to a full academic program of Language Arts, Mathematics, Science, and Social Studies, we provide an active enrichment program consisting of Spanish, Vocal Music, Physical Education, and Religious Studies daily.   Student learning is supported by a wide range of field trip experiences, grade level projects, and integrated instructional technology.
