Studies prove that parental involvement is the #1 indicator of a child’s academic achievement.
We invite you to volunteer your time and talents to St. Therese School.  We appreciate your commitment to helping our students become the individuals that God intended.

All volunteers who work with children must participate in our Safe Environment Program.
