St. Therese School Receives National Recognition for Commitment to Empowering Students
Named a distinguished school for STEM and career learning program
Kansas City, MO – St. Therese has been recognized as a Project Lead The Way (PLTW) Distinguished School for providing broad access to transformative learning opportunities for students through PLTW Gateway. It is one of just 176 across the U.S. to receive this honor. PLTW is a nonprofit organization that serves millions of PreK-12 students and teachers in over 12,200 schools across the U.S.
The PLTW Distinguished School recognition honors schools committed to increasing student access, engagement, and achievement in their PLTW programs. To be eligible for the designation, St. Therese had to meet the following criteria:
Through PLTW programs, students develop STEM knowledge as well as in-demand, transportable skills that they will use both in school and for the rest of their lives, on any career path they take. PLTW Gateway empowers students to lead their own discovery and uncover a range of paths and possibilities they can look forward to in high school and beyond.
Dear St. Therese School families,
Thank you again for your patience and support as we navigate these new and trying times. On the recommendation of Mayor Quintin Lucas and the Diocesan School Office, St. Therese School will shift to remote learning after Spring Break. We are uncertain about the length of time we will be delivering instruction in this way, but it will likely be at least until April 3rd. As the situation continues to develop, we will communicate changes as we know them.
We understand the weight of this decision. We respect that this is a disruption for your family and we hope you will understand our desire to communicate now in order to give you time to make arrangements to provide a home-learning environment for your child during the upcoming school closure.
The teachers, staff and I have been preparing for this shift to remote learning should it happen. We will share details soon about the date when remote learning will begin. You will be hearing from individual teachers about instructional plans and learning activities which will address the learning standards for each grade level during our homebound school time.
If you or someone in your household is diagnosed with COVID-19, or become aware that you have been in contact with someone who has a presumptive or confirmed diagnosis of COVID-19, I ask you to inform me as soon as possible.
We will be planning for a parent pick up day of student materials soon. More information about this pickup day will be forthcoming.
As always, we appreciate our community’s support and cooperation. You can assist us by remaining vigilant but sensible in your approach to dealing with this health concern. As you know, we are the greatest influence on our children’s reactions to these types of events. In these coming days, let us continue to turn towards Christ for care and comfort.
