Band
Band
Music Education Services offers all children the opportunity to join the school band beginning in 4th grade. In September, students have the opportunity to attend a performance during which all of the band instruments are demonstrated and explained. Students then have the chance to try two instruments as part of a hands-on exploration of their interests.
 
The STS Band students play several evening concerts throughout the year, combining with more than 150 other students from six local Catholic schools, and participate in both a solo festival and an honor band festival. In addition to the curricular concerts, students play at the Veterans Day assembly, Christmas concert, all school music concerts and several masses per year.

Athletic Programs St. Theresa Catholic School is concerned with the development of the WHOLE person - the religious, moral, social, and academic dimensions. We believe that participation in athletics is an important part of the student's physical development. Through participation in the St. Theresa Sports Program students may develop life-long skills and positive values. These values include leadership, healthful living habits, self-discipline, integrity, teamwork, respect for rules and regulations, and the ability to participate with dignity and grace.
