Principal's Message

Dear Parents, Guardians and Friends,

As we close yet another amazing school year, I reflect on the joy and privilege of serving you as principal of St. Teresa of Avila.  Now, as I retire from 36 years with the Red Deer Catholic Regional School Division I would like to thank the many dedicated people who have blessed my career – colleagues, parents, our community, our parish, and most especially children. We have certainly celebrated many great moments – hellos and goodbyes, triumphs and challenges, all of which will bring wonderful memories with me. Wherever our future leads, I know I will hold the community of St. Teresa of Avila very dear.

I would like to take this final opportunity to congratulate all students of St. Teresa of Avila School.  I wish you all a very happy, safe and enjoyable summer.  Please be sure to take time as a family to talk, play and pray together.


God Bless,

Shelley Gaalaas
