New Beginnings at St. Thomas the Apostle School

We warmly welcome the following new teachers to STA as we begin the 2014-15 school year.

Crystal Gray..............Art Grades K-8
Ali Thornton..............Spanish Grades 4-8
Mary McElroy............Full Day Pre-Kindergarten
Patricia Carinci........Part Time Pre-K Half Day and Extended Day


We say good bye to Joan O'Sullivan, resource room teacher and Wendy Mock, speech therapist from the WHUFSD and welcome Edie Stein, as our resource room teacher and Lisa Parente, providing speech services for our students.

I am confident these professionals will acclimate to the rhythm and spirit of STA and join us in providing our children with an enriching school year.

New at STA...
  • Violin offered at our after school band program. Grades 1-8.
  • Glee Club sessions offered during recess weekly in place of after school.
  • Extra Help Sessions,beginning in October,further information forthcoming.
  • PARP- Parents as Reading Partners in March.
  • New Security System Installed.
  • Part Time Aids in Kindergarten and Grade 1.

These and many other initiatives are part of the planning process that occurs during the summer months. Each one takes into account the needs of our students and the benefits that can be derived from their implementation.

I look forward to a year filled with exploration and discovery for the children as they become more skilled in their academic studies and faith formation.

Sincerely,
Christina Teisch
