At St. Teresa School We…… “Strive for Excellence and Manners Matter”
Welcome to St. Teresa. We are committed to making your child’s years at school productive and enjoyable. At St. Teresa Catholic Elementary school, we have developed a positive Code of Conduct called “Manners Matter”. Our plan will reduce the amount of time spent on classroom management issues, focus the school on “bell to bell” teaching, and improve learning and achievement for all of our students. All students deserve an education of the highest calibre in a friendly, safe Christian environment. We will demonstrate that all staff members share the same high expectations, and that these expectations extend beyond the classroom; into the halls, the yard, and the community.
Catholic education views human life as an integration of body, mind, and spirit. Rooted in this vision, Catholic education fosters the search for knowledge as a lifelong, spiritual and academic quest. The expectations of the Catholic learning community are described not only in terms of knowledge and skills but also in terms of values, attributes, and actions. By the time our students graduate, they are expected to be…
- A Discerning Believer Formed in the Catholic Faith Community
- A Caring Family Member
- An Effective Communicator
- A Collaborative Contributor
- A Responsible Citizen
- A Reflective and Creative Thinker
- A Self-Directed, Responsible, Life Long Learner
We believe that St. Teresa School is “A Caring, Catholic community, Committed to Learning and Growing Together.” Your child’s success is based on the community working together; parents, school staff and the parish. If at any time you have any questions please call the school directly or stop in to the main office and we will do our best to assist you. You can find information and updates about St. Teresa right here on our web site, or for information related to the Waterloo Catholic District School Board by logging on to http://www.wcdsb.ca/. Working in partnership, together we can make each day of school a success.
