Hello St. Theresa families!
On behalf of the entire St. Theresa staff, we welcome you to the 2022-2023 school year, especially our families from Ukraine. Our Admin team remains intact with me as Principal and Ms. Lindbeck and Mr. Gregg as my co-leaders. Mrs. Chalifoux is in the front office with Mrs. Wozimirsky, who joined us midway through last year.
Unlike at this time last year, the optimism we left with in June for a “normal” school year seems to be a reality! For this we are grateful as we look forward to a disruption free year. With that, mark your calendars as we are bringing back an in-person meet the teacher event on Tuesday, September 13th. More details to come in the coming weeks.
Please keep the staff here at St. Theresa in your prayers, that we remain present, that we are active listeners, and that, with the help of God, we act with wisdom and discernment when interacting with your children every day.
Know that every student who walks into this building is loved and cared for and belongs here at St. Theresa. We trust that this year will be fruitful and successful for everybody in the St Theresa learning community as we embrace our new theme: Better Together: One Body In Christ
God bless you and keep you safe.

Lockers and school locks will be assigned to students in all grades by their homeroom teachers. Our bell schedule can be found on our website at https://stt.eics.ab.ca/about/bell-schedule
Please note that transportation questions regarding bus routes/times, etc must be directed to the transportation office if you have not heard from your bus driver prior to August 28th, as the school does not have that information at this time.
If you have not yet logged into your parent powerschool account to complete annual forms, please do so before school begins. Annual forms that are incomplete are highlighted in red on the home page when you log into powerschool. Student Demographic forms must be completed each year to confirm your child's registration at St Theresa, and Yearly Consent forms for field trips, technology use and locker use must also be completed for your child to participate in these activities. If you require assistance with completing these forms please refer to https://www.eics.ab.ca/parent-resources-including-technology-powerschool/parent-technology-handbook-powerschool-for-parents for detailed instructions.
We look forward to an exciting and successful year!
