Letter from the Principal
My name is Aura Street and I am the Principal of Mother Teresa School. We are very proud to be part of the Medicine Hat Catholic Board of Education (MHCBE) and look forward to showcasing all of the wonderful things our school has to offer throughout this document.
At Mother Teresa School, we believe that all children can be successful; it’s just a matter of
recognizing what that path to success looks like and adjusting our programming and teaching to align with those particular strengths and interests. We are a dedicated staff here at Mother Teresa School and we recognize the value and importance of each and every one of our students.
During this school year, we will continue to implement the STREAM philosophy
throughout our school. Due to current Covid-19 guidelines and restrictions, the approach has been altered in some ways, for the time being, to ensure that the health and safety of our students is being addressed first and foremost. That said, the philosophy is still very evident in our classrooms and throughout our teachings. STREAM is an educationally embedded approach to learning that uses Science, Technology, Reading & Religion, the Arts (Humanities, Performing & Visual Arts) and Mathematics as access points for guiding student inquiry, dialogue, and critical thinking. Students use the Engineering process to imagine, create, and plan open-ended problem solving which encourages students to learn from failure. Learning how to fail forward is a key component of this process. The end results are students who take thoughtful risks, engage in experiential learning, persist in problem-solving, embrace collaboration, and work through the creative process.
Lastly, Mother Teresa School would not be what it is without the support of our parents and
community members. We encourage all stakeholders to continue to communicate with us at the school (even though we cannot always see one another in person right now). Your opinions matter! Please also consider joining our School Council. It is a great way to stay involved in your child’s learning journey.
