The Parent Teacher Group (PTG) provides support to the faculty and staff of the school, serves as a voice for parents and offers community building opportunities for the mutual benefit of the children, parents, and educators.   All parents, guardians, and educators of St. Teresa School are welcome members.  Meetings are held quarterly during the school year and there is no cost to join.  We encourage everyone to be an active member to the St. Teresa of Avila PTG.
