Be A Part of Our Community Kitchen!

As a way to celebrate not only the 30th anniversary of our Auction & Gala but also our amazing community, St. Al’s will be publishing a cookbook titled, Community Kitchen.

We’re looking for recipe submissions from our entire St. Al’s community, so please feel free to forward to parishioners, alumni, and/or alumni parents!

The cookbook will be published November 2018 and first sales will be at the Auction & Gala.

  • Recipes must be original or adapted recipes (if possible, please include credit to original recipe). We cannot accept published or copyrighted recipes.
  • Submissions are due August 1, 2018.

Please contact Season Evans with any questions or if you have issues with the submission form.

Welcome our new Principal, Miss Kathleen Cifu

Dear St. Alphonsus Families and Friends,

I’m so excited to announce our new principal, Miss Kathleen G. Cifu.

Miss Cifu is originally from southern California but has lived in the Seattle area for the last 12 years. She obtained her BA in History at California Baptist University and later studied at Seattle Pacific University where she earned her masters and PHD in Curriculum and instruction. She converted to Catholicism four years ago and is an active member of Holy Rosary Catholic Church in Seattle where she sings in the choir.

Miss Cifu comes to us with six years of teaching experience at the middle school level from West Seattle Academy and Islander Middle School as well as two years of administrative intern experience at Islander Middle School on Mercer Island. She is also a current adjunct professor at Seattle Pacific University teaching classes to prepare future teachers for the job market.

Miss Cifu is very excited about being the next principal of our school. Please join me in welcoming her.

I also would like to invite you to a Town Hall meeting that the School Commission and I are hosting on Wednesday June 20th at 7pm in the Family Center. During this meeting we plan on presenting our new principal as well as answering some questions.

Please RSVP to let us know if you plan to come. We are organizing child care so please let us know how many children you might bring with you. We will offer a movie and other activities to keep them entertained.

Thank you for all your support during this time.

God bless,
Fr. Richard Klepac, SOLT
St. Alphonsus Catholic Church

Scrip: Thank you, Volunteers!

The Scrip committee would like to thank our volunteers who are graduating this year:
Melissa Murphy
Michelle McMyler
Jean Forster
Lilli Forgette
Without their dedication to Scrip, we wouldn’t be able to run the Scrip program as effectively as we do!

Volunteers Needed

Scrip is looking for volunteers interested in helping sell Scrip next year. We are looking for people during the week and especially after the weekend masses. It’s a great way to earn volunteer hours and meet other St. Al’s families. Please contact Mija Hamilton if you are interested or would like more info.

Grandparents’/Grandfriends Day

Thank you to all of our Grandparents’ and Grandfriends’ who joined us on Friday, May 25th!

We so enjoyed the 3rd grade prayer assembly, the Kindergarten and 1st Grade songs, and the musical numbers from Mary Poppins, Jr. Our Book Sale was a success (all proceeds benefit our wonderful library) and the cake was delicious!

Finally, we loved seeing all the smiling faces in the photos by Suzy Petrucci of GlimmerGlass Photography. Here is the link to the photos, and the PIN (05252018) you’ll need to download.  Enjoy!
