For the  parents and families of St. Therese Chinese Catholic School


Dear Parents,

Thank you to all of the parents who came to Parent Conferences this week. It is so important to hear first-hand from your child's teachers about their progress in the classroom. 

As you have noted, we have changed the timing of our re-enrollment process. This is a gentle reminder that registration for the 2019-2020 School Year is due on Monday, April 1st. Please return your registration paperwork along with the registration fee and first tuition payment to the School Office no later than April 1st.

I have been working with Fr. Li, representatives from the Archdiocese, and leaders and staff at the current St. Barbara School to prepare for next year. I will be able to share more details in the coming weeks about this important expansion for St. Therese. In the meantime, please continue to refer friends, neighbors, and others to St. Therese as we continue to seek to fill more seats at the St. Barbara Bridgeport campus. Please tell interested families that they can contact either Mrs. Chan in our school office or the St. Barbara office at ( 312) 326-6243 for inquiries or to register for a personal tour. 

I hope you and your family enjoy a wonderful spring break next week. Whether you are traveling or staying in town, I wish you a rejuvenating break! School will not be in session from Monday, March 18 through Friday, March 22nd. Classes resume on Monday, March 25th.

Best,
Ms. Lisa Deborah Oi
Principal

PS - Don't forget! We are offering a $300 tuition bonus to our current families if you refer a new family to St. Therese and this family enrolls a child at the school.
