Congratulations to Mr. Mallinson and the students of St. Therese School, who particpated in the Catholic Band Association Competition, which was held at Villanova University last weekend. The Musical Adventures Showband received a Best Concert Band trophy for their performance of "The Tempest," "Over the Rainbow," and "Fallbrook March." The St. Therese School is the "Flagship School," for the Showband, making up the core of its performing members.

Report cards were distributed today for the end of the third marking period.

If you missed the HSA General Meeting a number of topics were discussed. Currently we need more volunteers to assist at lunch time. If you are available and you have an hour to spare we could use your help.

The revised Diocesan Bullying Policy was discussed. The policy will be placed in the student/parent handbooks over the summer.

Also discussed, were "Words Students Are Not Permitted to Say in School." Please refer to my letter that went home on February 28.

Improvements to our security plan, and the exploration of a security plan entitled, "ALICE. were also discussed." The acronym stands for ALERT, LOCKDOWN, INFORM, COUNTER, EVACUATE. Training for this plan will be mandatory for all administrators in the Fall of 2018. 

This past weekend the 8th graders made sandwiches to feed the homeless at the Faith Kitchen in Dover. HSA members and myself distributed the food on Saturday during lunchtime. It was eye opening and gratifying experience. Much thanks to the Matt Wines, HSA president ,  memebers of the HSA and  the eighth grade for organizing and making the sandwiches.

Our amended calendar has been approved by the diocese. The last day of school will be June 20.

This weekend our eighth graders are running a Clothing Drive. Please see the Friday Folder for drop off times for Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

On Saturday April 28 the St. Therese Rosary Altar Society will be hosting a Spirit, Mind, and Body "Spa Day," from 11:00 am - 3:00 pm.

Next Friday is our Mother/Son Carnival Day. Come see Mr. Dunnigan and others get dunked in the dunk tank. Promises to be fun for all.

On Friday, May 11, St. Therese School will perform their Annual Spring Concert beginning at 7:00 pm in the gymnasium.

Our May Crowning has been moved from May 4 to May 18 at 1:00 pm.

St. Therese students will be participating in a STEM Symposium at Caldwell College from 10:00 - 2:00 pm. Hope you can make the trip to witness the exciting STEM projects our kids have been working on all year.

Finally, don't forget about the Annual St. Therese Golf Outing set to take place at Black Bear Country Club on Tuesday, May 15 at 1:00 pm. There will be great, prizes, great food and most of all, great people.

Have Blessed Weekend,

Tim Dunnigan
