There is a live presentation for only new families beginning at 6:00 p.m. in the Community Center. This includes any families for whom 2018-19 is their first year of enrollment. The presentation will cover school policies and the Family and Student Handbook.
Returning families, those who were enrolled prior to the 2018-19 academic year, can report to the school building at 6:30 p.m. New families will join you around 6:40 p.m. This will be a time to meet with faculty in their classrooms as well as representatives from The Healthy Lunchbox, Creative Minds Aftercare and other organizations.
Before August 9th we ask all families to review the Family and Student Handbook. School leadership will be available at “Back to School Night” to answer questions and offer additional context. When families turn in their Handbook Acknowledgement and Technology User Agreement forms, they will receive their car queue signs and other important documents.
The evening is expected to end around 7:30 p.m. We look forward to seeing everyone there!
Congratulations to the 85 STCS students who competed in over 20 categories at the P.S.I.A. meet on Saturday, March 24th. And thank you to the parents that not only chaired sessions that day, but listened to recitations and prepared your children in other ways for the event. Due to everyone’s fantastic efforts, 23 of our students earned a 3rd place or higher distinction in their areas, and 15 of our students will go on to compete at the state level! Ms. Dorian Speed and the faculty who supported her in our preparation efforts deserve our undying gratitude for all of the work and time they invested in getting us “fighting fit” for the competition. STCS came in third overall among all of the schools competing.
On Saturday, March 24th at 7:30 p.m. our choir will perform Pergolesi’s Stabat Mater with string quartet and organist, Dr. Kevin Clarke. The concert will also feature sacred motets and chants appropriate to the celebration of the Holy Mass and the Lenten season. Soloists included Catherine Goode, Soprano and Lauren Henderson-Turner, Mezzo-Soprano. The choir will be directed by Mr. Zachary Turner.
On Monday, January 29th, select 5th–8th graders visited the campus of Houston Baptist University at the invitation of Dr. Terrence Johnson, Chair of the School of Music and Director of Choral Activities. They performed a 40-minute concert in a forum of students and faculty of the music school. The quality of the performance was exceptional and our audience was absolutely thrilled. The accolades were so great that Dr. Johnson has invited our students to collaborate with him and his collegiate choir in a performance of a piece he is composing in honor of Saint Therese-The Story of a Soul.
Part of any great, well-rounded education is Athletics. We encourage our students to exemplify what they learn in the classroom on the court, field or track. We instruct our students to be leaders and good examples whether they win or lose. Come on out and show your support for our Griffins!
We are so proud of our Griffins and what they’re doing on the basketball court! Check out our latest achievements for this season.
On November 8, 2017, the fifth grade at Saint Theresa Catholic School stepped back in time to experience the sights and sounds of an authentic recreation of a 16th century European village at the 13th Annual School Days at the Texas Renaissance Festival. Students interacted with hundreds of costumed characters representing the courts, culture, art, science, and literature of the Renaissance Period.
Fifth grade students competed in multiple contests as part of the festival, and earned awards in several categories at the Intermediate School level. In the Poetry competition, an Honorable Mention went to Danica Tran for her poem, “Dragons,”, with Adanna Okeke’s “The Queen’s Party” earning third place, Anastasia Dementyev’s “Of Times Long Past” second place, and Monica Martin’s “Death Remembrance” first place.
In the Essay competition, third place was merited by Emily Tran with her essay “The Renaissance Inventions,” second place by Monica Serice with “Major Inventions during the Renaissance Period,” and first place by Megan Cung for her essay, “Henry VII, King of England.”
In the Art competition, Honorable Mention went to Stacy Saucedo for “The Girl Writing Music” and Megan Cung for “The Lone Knight,” with Jaclyn Khong winning first place for her drawing, “Renaissance Princess.”
The Texas Renaissance Festival includes an Early Music Festival during the School Days program, designed to encourage students to explore the varied forms of early music and to discover the joy of performance. Our fifth grade students won second place in the Treble Choir competition under the direction of Mr. Zachary Turner.
We are thankful for the opportunity to attend the School Days this year!
