• welcome

    Dear Parents of Little Saints Academy Students,

    Welcome, to all those returning for another year and all who will be new to LSA this school year. We are looking forward to a wonderful experience with your child.

    Below are just a few suggestions that may help start the year smoothly for all:

    Please call the office (717)774-7464 or email at: stslittlesaints@sainttheresaschool.org if there are any questions or concerns. Call the office for urgent business.


    Every day, when you drop off or pick up your child, please remember to sign him/her in/out, with the time, and be sure that a teacher greets both you and your child. We like hand-to-hand delivery. Also mark whether your child is buying lunch or packing a lunch. (See below)



    The Nutrition Group has a lunch menu on the Saint Theresa School website for students that are purchasing lunch or you may wish to send in a packed lunch, clearly labeled with your child’s name. Check the menu and let us know what your child will be ordering each morning when you drop off and sign in on the sign in sheet or whether he/she is packing a lunch.

    A Morning and an afternoon snack are provided.  If your child has food allergies or a special diet, please notify us that you will be providing your own snack in a labeled snack baggy.



    St. Theresa preschoolers do not wear uniforms. Our dress rules are simple and devised with children in mind for safety, ease and comfort. Please dress your child according to the weather and for outdoor play.  This includes Velcro shoes. (PLEASE, for safety’s sake, NO SANDALS). Clothing should be easy for children to manage for their toileting needs.

    Please assemble a change of clothing for your student(s) that we can keep here at LSA. Include in this: undies, socks, and a complete outfit.

    Place these in a large Ziploc bag with your child’s name clearly labeled on clothes and bag.



    There is a $30 registration fee that you can bring the first day of school or add it to the first payment at the end of August.

    Please check your child’s take home folder every evening or send notes in this folder too. You will be billed for LSA this way.


    Little Saints provides rest mats, however, each child needs to have his/her own crib size sheet or small sleeping bag and pillow, etc. for resting.  For ease identification and storage, kindly place these items in a pillowcase. Children may also bring one comfort item from home for cuddling purposes if needed. Please LABEL. We request that all other personal and/or valuable items be left at home. They can easily be lost, broken or misplaced and may become a distraction to the children.

    To begin the school term, we ask that each family supply one box of tissues and one box of wipes per child.


    We, at Little Saints Academy, are devoted to making your child’s experience a loving and nurturing one as we help guide your child in his/her walk with Christ.  Our curriculum also reinforces, strengthens, enhances and supports what your child is learning in Pre-School. 



    Please email or call if you have any concerns or questions. Thank you for entrusting your precious possession into our care.  We promise to love and make your child feel special.  

     Mrs. Maria Malay (Mrs. M)

    Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.

    Love never fails.

    1Corinthians 13:6-8
