Today is the last day of the marking period. The marking period was extended due the inordinate amount of snow days we had during the third marking period. Report cards will go home on Friday, April 27 along with a copy of the students' IOWA Standardized Test Scores.

Today is the last day to get your customized yearbook order in. It must be in by 11:59 pm. Non-custom orders have until next week. The 8th grade yearbook booster form is on the Friday Folder for your submission.

Our annual Spring Concert is only weeks away on Friday, May 11. That also means it is time for our Spring Concert Bake Sale. Please consider donating treats to sell. The profit goes directly to the children of St. Therese School. Please remember all items must be nut-free. See the Friday Folder for more information.

On another musical note, approximately fifteen of our students from St. Therese will be travelling to Villanova University on Saturday, April 21 to perform with the Musical Adventures Band. Mr. Mallinson has been working extremely hard to get our students to perform their very best. Our band studentas are very excited about the trip and I am sure they will perform at a very high level. We wish them good luck.

Mrs. Warga is running a Summer Music Camp. Please see the Friday Folder for more information.

The profits aren't in yet, but Fuddrucker's was mobbed for dinner on Thursday, April 19. It looked as if the whole school was there. We thank Fuddruckers for providing us with 15% of the profits for those St. Therese Families that ate there.

Please be reminded that there is a General HSA Meeting scheduled for Thursday, April 26 at 7:00 pm. We look forward to seeing our STS families there and we continue to thank you for supporting the St. Therese School  that has been blessed in so many ways.

Also, please be reminded that Spring Pictures will take place on Friday, April 27.

Finally, a huge thank you to Mr. Matt Wines, our HSA President, for organizing an event where our students, parents and members of the HSA will get an opportunity to assist the less fortunate who don't get 3 square meals a day. On Saturday morning we will drive down to Faith Kitchen in Dover NJ to feed lunch to the less fortunate and those who have fell on hard times. It will be a humbling experience for all, but at the same time there is no greater feeling one can get than helping our fellow brothers and sisters. This was Jesus's command, " Love your neighbor as yourself." St. Therese School will put that into practice on Saturday as we try our best to live by that command. Thank you Mr. Wines and HSA members for organizing. This is what Catholic education is about.
