Faith Families & Buddies

Faith Families is a cross-grade experience led by eighth grade students. Each Faith Family is a blend of students from different grade levels that allows for personal one-on-one attention to support and integrate our youngest students into the St. Theresa School community, while providing older students with the opportunity to be leaders and role models to the younger children.

Each kindergarten student is paired with a designated seventh grade student “buddy”, first grade students are paired with a sixth grade “buddy” and second grade students are paired with a fifth grade “buddy”. The eighth grade “parents” coordinate and lead activities, events and school liturgies to encourage student spirituality and sense of community.
