School Service and Outreach
As a part of our Mission statement, we are committed to service in a nurturing, Christ-centered environment. In order to incorporate the practice of generosity and charity in our teaching of Catholic values, our students also help many people in the following programs:
- Respect Life - usually in October. St. Theresa Catholic School promotes respect for life through fundraising and awareness-raising efforts in collaboration with the Respect Life office of the Archdiocese of Miami. This supports expectant mothers who choose life for their children.
- In conjunction with the Knights of Columbus, students bring non-perishable food items for families who have a very difficult time in the non-growing seasons. In December we cooperate with the Knights of Columbus by giving toys and Christmas gifts for these children.
- Students also help with personal care supplies for homeless people. Through these opportunities the school hopes to instill an ongoing sense of generosity and personal self-giving.
- Students at all different age levels learn about giving to others through a variety of activities. Pre K 4 students participate in an annual Trike-a-Thon to benefit the children of St. Jude Hospital. Our children raise the most funds through this activity than any other school in the nation.
