Congratulations to Saint Al’s 7th grade student, Sam Jones! Sam has qualified to compete in the National Geographic 2019 Washington State GeoBee, happening Friday, March 29 at Highline College in Des Moines, WA. The winner of this event will receive a top prize of $1,000 cash and a trip to Washington, DC for the National Championship! Great job, Sam! We’ll be cheering you on!
The snack packs consist of cereal, pretzels, and chocolate chips donated by Saint Al’s families. The students created enough snack packs to fill 10 grocery bags, which were then delivered to the food back after school. Great job students!
At Saint Alphonsus we are a community of students, parents, teachers, staff, and parishioners working together for our shared success. There are countless ways you can volunteer and we would like to help you find the right opportunities!
Please complete this short Volunteer Interests & Skills survey, which will be used to create a database of expertise and talent accessible to organizers as volunteer opportunities become available.
The Archdiocese of Seattle’s Office of Marriage and Family Life provides resources and tips to help parents navigate the ever-changing technological landscape and assist their children in using these resources responsibly.
Does your child like to run? Jump? Throw things? Get to know kids in other grades? Have fun? Track season is starting soon! Sign your 4th – 8th grader up for the St. Al/St. John track team. We had a ton of fun last year with a record 85 kids participating, and a 2018 CYO championship team win. We look forward to another year and any and all are welcome to participate regardless of experience or ability.
Practices start Monday, March 25 and continue through the end of May. Practices will be Mondays and Wednesdays, 6:30 – 8:00 PM at the Ingraham High School track. This year we are also able to offer Friday practices, 6:30 – 7:30, for those who want to do a bit more running or get additional practice on their field events. Meets will be on Saturdays, May 4, 11, 18, and June 1. There is also a very fun 8th grade-only Pentathlon on May 19 that we encourage all 8th graders to participate in—pizza party details will be forthcoming.
Like cross-country, practices are optional–we understand kids have many other commitments, so please send your kids when it works. Please don’t worry if you can attend any or all of the meets. Also, we understand many kids do club sports outside of school, so if they can’t make any practices but will be running elsewhere, we would still love to have them for meets if they are interested, so let us know.
We’re welcoming back Mike Martinez as distance coach and Trevor Sevigny as sprinting coach, and are thrilled to have Dave White and Rachel Lambert on board to coach sprinting and Chris and Marie Holt back to continue their support with coaching distance. If anyone else has a passion for track, we welcome any and all parent-helpers at practices.
Are you, or do you know of a graduate of St. Al’s or Holy Angels’ Academy? Our graduates live and work all across the globe – we would love to see where they are.
Please print an alumni sign, write in your class year, and take a photo. Once you have the perfect shot, send it to us at email@example.com. We will publish photos received on social media and the school’s website.
Mother/ Son Dodgeball is happening June 7 at the Family Center. Want to join in on the fun? Contact Candice W. at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information. Remember, if you can dodge a wrench, you can dodge a ball.
Sound Transit has extended the public comment period on route and station alternatives for the ST3 Ballard Link (Light Rail) Extension project until April 2, 2019.
