From Sister Anne Joelle:
Sister Mary from the Diocesan Technology Department found this article from a Facebook post from Fairfield Public Schools. It has excellent information that you as parents need to know about what is on your child's mobile devices and how your child(ren) is(are) using these apps. It is not to scare you but to help you to know what to do. As you may be aware as soon as adults get onto a site the children move onto something else.
A simple rule to know what your kids are doing is not so simple. It takes time to check their devices to see what they are doing. The best thing parents can do is to know how to use parental controls and actually use them. They can search online for directions on how to set up controls on any device. One other tool is Covenant Eyes. For information on Covenant Eyes, go to the Diocesan website on their Freedom From Pornography page.
Let us continue to take the next best step to help our students to live up to their God-given potential to reach heaven!
$crip is basically like a gift card that can be used like cash to purchase products or services from merchants who have issued them. $crip can be used to purchase anything from groceries, fuel, and clothing, to entertainment, electronics, and music. The proceeds go to textbook purchases, computer supplies and saving for when it's time to replace our school bus.
St. Teresa's School buys $crip from retailers at a discounted price and then sells $crip for the face value of the card. When an individual buys a $50 $crip card to Russ's, they are able to purchase $50 in groceries or gas. If that purchase is made with $50 in cash, the school gets nothing. But, if that same purchase is made with $crip, St. Teresa's $crip fund gets $2.50. You have the exact same purchasing power with $crip as with cash or credit but, by using $crip to pay for your purchases, the school makes money.
$crip is available before and after 4 pm Saturday Mass and all Sunday Masses. $crip can also be purchased any day that school is in session, at the rectory from 9-12 when school is not in session and online at www.shopwithscrip.com if you are enrolled in PrestoPay. Online ordering offers many conveniences from electronic Scrip to submitting your order and having it sent home the same day. A form is available below, in the Scrip box and also sent home the first Wednesday of each month in the school's communication folder.
Anyone who is reading this can buy and use $crip. It is convenient to buy and easy to use.
It pays to buy $crip!
For your convenience we have provided the order form on this page. You may fill it out and bring it to the $crip table in the vestibule of the church along with your payment. After Mass your order will be ready for pick-up.

This year it brought in almost $45,000! Students and faculty walked a mile route around Calvert cemetary while praying and singing and remembering intentions of those who contributed towards this fundraiser.
Money from this was used on textbooks, carpet for classrooms, 2 air conditioners and various repairs around the school.

The following is a helpful list of things that may not be in the handbook for first time parents at St. Teresa’s School.
A child’s St. Therese costume usually consists of a brown long-sleeve tunic with a rope/yarn belt, and a black veil. Parents sometimes attach veil material to a headband, or to a white T-shirt which frames the child’s face. Optional additions include a light yellow cape, a crucifix, and roses to carry.
Please feel free to send new items to be considered for the FAQ as the years go on. It’s easy to forget what you didn’t know once you learn it, so send ideas as they come up. We can help the School Family by reaching out to each other!
