St. Therese Chinese Catholic School Community
Dear Friends of St. Therese,
This past Saturday evening, March 3rd, our students, parents, friends and extended family came together to celebrate the Year of the Dog with the St. Therese Chinese Catholic School community.
Guests were treated with performances by our students including traditional performances and modern choreography. Other highlights included the presentation of the Lifetime Service Award to Darlene and Chris Lowe, traditional cuisine, and the always popular open dance floor at the end of the evening.
We are still a bit short in reaching our goal for the Faculty Follies. If we can raise the full $10,000 not only will our school experience all Follies, including a day off in May, but we will be able to install our new playground surface that will help "save our student's knees." If you intended to support the Faculty Follies and would like to donate, you can still donate here or you may send a check to the school marked "Faculty Follies." Thank you for your support!
Finally, this event could not happen with the support of so many - from our School and Family Association co-presidents Anita Mark and Elisa Moy and their fantastic committee, to the many donors and sponsors who support this event. We thank you from the bottom of our hearts for all you do for our school and the children.
