The greatest fulfillment is in doing God’s will.
We do not have to do great things, only small things with great love.
We do not have to be extraordinary in any way.
I can do what you can’t do and you can do what I can’t do. Together we can do something beautiful for God. We can be the little pencils in the hand of God.

St. Teresa of Calcutta, Pray for us.

Principal's Message

Happy November!  We are in the handful of days just before the holiday season kicks-off.  Today marks the end of Trimester I!  Tomorrow from 8:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. at Conewago Campus is our annual Christmas Bazaar!  This is a great event that supports our school.  (See below for information on a DDD).  Any questions and/or available volunteers, please contact Kristen Wenger.

As our teachers are finishing up grades and report cards, Home & School said a special “Thank you” this week by covering teachers’ lunch and recess duties so that they were able to fully enjoy STC’s famous turkey dinner.  We are blessed to have a very invested and caring community of families.  It is a true, irreplaceable Christian witness for our deanery.

G.K. Chesterton wrote that “gratitude is the mother of all virtue.”  The virtues we celebrate each month all have their beginnings in a heart that is thankful.  Let all of us continue and build upon the words and acts of gratitude towards one another!

Uniform Reminders:  Winter uniform is in full effect.  Students are to follow the dress code for winter found on pages 48-50 of the Handbook.  On gym days, students are to wear “Navy blue Saint Teresa of Calcutta logo sweatpants” purchased from Weaver’s Screen Printing.  Spirit wear sweatpants and/or sweatshirts are NOT part of the school uniform. Spirt wear is only allowed on spirit wear dress down days.

If a student has outgrown or missed the deadline to purchase appropriate gym attire, please be aware that we have re-opened the online store through Weaver’s to allow for purchases starting today and running until November 24th. Please use this link to order.  Orders will be delivered to school.  Until this time, students are permitted to wear plain navy blue sweatpants without a label or stripes etc. such at Hanes or Jersey brands.  A uniform’s purpose is to not portray distinction or labels so everyone is the same.

Beginning on December 2nd, if anyone is out of uniform or not wearing non- labeled shorts, sweatpants, etc., the student will receive a referral for out of uniform.  Thank you for your cooperation.

Additionally, sweatshirts should be removed during the school day in the classroom unless the teacher gives a specific exemption because the room is abnormally cool.  Sweatshirts are not a part of the normal daily dress code. See page 48 of the Handbook.  If a student needs warmth daily and prefers an additional layer, they may wear the uniform sweater or quarter-zip fleece pullover, which can be ordered through Flynn & O'Hara.  Again, please refer to pages 47-49 of the Handbook for clarification.

God Bless,

Mrs. Crystal Noel, Principal - McSherrystown Campus
Mr. Jesse Read,  Principal - Conewago Campus
