On Wednesday August 3rd the Faculty was treated to a luncheon by the Home & School during their In-Service. The food
was prepared by Murray's Supermarket and was a welcome treat!
Congratulations to the Rye Family!
Pictured at left are Darla and
James Rye, parents of St. Theresa student Emily Rye, along with Solie Brown,
president of the St. Theresa Home and School Association. Mrs. Brown presented the Rye’s with a check that will cover
the tuition for their daughter for the 2011-2012 school year. The Rye’s were selected as the winners of the free tuition
raffle held by the St. John and St. Theresa Home and School Association for those who volunteered throughout the year. For
every 10 hours volunteered, the parent’s name was entered once into the drawing. The total number of hours volunteered
at both St. Theresa and St. John Primary schools was 6,302 from February 2010 to April 2011.
The STA/SJP Home and School Association has been around for many
years. Originally, the "Warriors Club" was in charge of class parties. Through the years it has slowly evolved into the organization
that it is today -- an integral part in the organizing, planning and staffing of the many events throughout the school year.
Although the H&S is rooted deep in tradition, change and new faces are ALWAYS WELCOME! YOU are this association and without
the help of all STA/SJP families, we would not function!!
Our hope is to keep parents informed of the activities sponsored
by the Home & School. We hope to give you the chance to comment, question and share your ideas on enhancing the lives
of our students.
The objectives of the STA/SJP Home and School are:
- To enhance and contribute to the religious, academic, and social
experiences of the students of St. Theresa and St. John schools.
- To promote open communication among parents, teachers, and administrators.
- To provide parents and teachers with the information to aid in
all aspects of education growth and development.
- To direct and coordinate parental support to St. Theresa and St.
John through assistance with activities, social functions and fundraisers.
- To foster the political action of parents as advocates regarding
national, state and local legislation that affects Catholic schools as well as the lives of students and parents.
- We work under the leadership of the Diocese of Baton Rouge Home
& School Association.
Home and School Meetings
There are two general meetings held during the school year. The
first meeting takes place during the first or second month of school to discuss H&S activities for the year as well as
room parents and their duties. The second meeting is held during the spring semester to discuss STA Field Day and SJP Fun
Day. Meetings are held during the evening and are open to all STA/SJP parents. Dates, times, and locations for these meetings
will be posted at a later date.
- Volunteer T-shirts will be sold during Meet-the-Teacher mornings and each of the parent nights. Volunteers are encouraged
(but not required) to wear these T's while working at various Home
& School sponsored events.They will be sold in adult sizes only. Be on the lookout for these! Supplies will be limited.
- Home and School has a new email address! If you have any questions/concerns/helpful
hints, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you!
We need you...to volunteer!
Volunteers are one of the most important parts of our schools. Many events would not be possible if we did not have
volunteers to work them. Below are pictures from the Fun Day at SJP and Field Day at STA, which require lots of parent/grandparent
volunteers. The kids count on having these events and many others throughout the year, but we need your help to have
You will receive a volunteer information packet at the beginning of school. We realize that you will be overwhelmed with
paperwork during this time, but we hope you find a moment to review the information and sign up to help in some way.
Even if you can only do one or two things on the list, remember every little bit counts. Thank you in advance!

For the 2010-2011 School Year the Home
& School Association will be making every effort to GO Green! Many forms for volunteering will be
available on the website and will not be sent over and over again home to parents. Please make an effort to save forms and
send them back in a timely manner. Most volunteer notices will be sent via email as well. This is really the fastest and most
efficient way to communicate in today's fast paced life. It's great to meet new people at school through volunteering and
many lasting friendships are formed in this way. We hope to see many fresh new faces next year!
The Caring and Sharing Committee
is an ongoing service committe which provides services including meals to St. Theresa families during difficult and congratulatory
times. This is a way in which we can show our support and share our faith. If you would be interested in helping
please contact JENNIFER BOURGEOIS for St. John Primary campus and KRISTA MADERE for St. Theresa campus if
you have any information we could use. Contact info is on the next page with list of officers. Also, the only way we
get info about a sick student or family member, birth of a child, death of a STA family member, etc.. is through word of mouth.
Please contact home & school should you have info regarding such. Thanks!
