St. Teresa School is a prayerful and caring community committed to a common cause. We are blessed with an abundance of volunteers and benefactors who selflessly support the mission and vision of our school through prayer, service, and financial gifts. Our students, in turn, are encouraged to perform acts of service throughout the school year and are especially generous in their service to the parish as altar servers, choir members, and volunteers at parish events.
Monsignor Mitchel M. Kaczmarek EndowmentThe Monsignor Mitchel M. Kaczmarek Endowment began began with a $65,000 bequest to our parish in 1995 from Monsignor Kaczmarek, our first pastor. Monsignor Joseph Nemec was the pastor at the time of this bequest and he decided to establish the Monsignor Mitchel M. Kaczmarek Endowment. Over the years, this endowment has increased to $2.9 million. This is due to the foresight and efforts of Monsignor Nemec as well as the generosity of parishioners and friends of St. Teresa Parish. Each year, 100% of the interest earned from this Endowment is used to offset school expenses to help keep tuition low and affordable for our school families. The principal remains untouched, allowing it to generate income for our school operations for many years to come.

Walk the Little WayWalk the Little Way is our school’s largest annual fundraiser. Focusing on prayer, community, and building for the future, together we celebrate the fruits of our labor and stewardship. Each year students walk a one-mile route as they pray for the intentions of our donors. Corporate sponsors and generous individual donors provide our school with much-needed funds to purchase textbooks, teacher supplies, and school improvement projects.

Service & Safety
Volunteers are valued members of our school community. Opportunities to serve are advertised at the beginning of the school year and in the newsletter as needs arise. As the safety of our students, faculty, and staff is a priority, all staff and volunteers complete the diocese’s Safe Environment Program and are subject to a background check..
