Saint Thecla’s Family School Association (FSA) is an organization made up of parents and guardians of St. Thecla students, as well as the Principal and Father Gene. The Family School Association was formed to support the work of the school by sponsoring a variety of activities that contribute to our students’ physical, emotional, intellectual and spiritual growth. The objectives of this organization are to advance Catholic education, promote the welfare of all St. Thecla children, facilitate parental involvement in the school, benefit the school financially and socially, and to foster a closer relationship between home and school life.
