Queen Anne Food Bank

Angels Giving Back!

This week, Middle School boys and their 1st grade buddies worked together to create snack packs for clients of the Queen Anne Food Bank at Sacred Heart.

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!

PreK – 1st Grade Family Play Date

Fun for the whole family!

March 9th was the final Saint Al’s Family Play Date for winter quarter. The idea to bring families together for fun and fellowship during Seattle’s dark and dreary months was developed by Season Evans, Mom of two Saint Al’s students. The events drew families large and small, as well as several future Angels. Thank you Season!

Do you have an event idea that would help build community and create connections?  Let us know, email [email protected].

Megan Costa: 2018-2019 Elizabeth Ann Seton Award Winner

Dear Friends and Families of St. Alphonsus Parish & School,

I wanted to thank our school principal, Ms. Cifu, for giving me the incredible honor of receiving the St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Award this year at our Catholic Schools Week Mass! It has been a blessing to be a part of the St. Alphonsus community for the last four years. Since joining the team in 2015 as 1st grade teacher, I have enjoyed being a part of this supportive and caring school and parish community.

Teaching 1st grade and working with our primary students has brought me so much joy over the years. For the past two years, I have also been blessed with the opportunity to take on new leadership roles outside of the classroom. I have enjoyed working alongside Ms. Cifu as a part of our school’s leadership team, as well as working with Fr. Richard, the sisters, and our youth as St. Alphonsus youth minister.

Thank you to the incredible families, parishioners, teachers and staff that help make our school and parish community so wonderful! I look forward to all the blessings that our year together will bring. I would also like to thank my husband, my parents and family for their endless amount of love and support throughout my teaching career.

Thank you,
Megan Costa

Young Authors at St. Als!

Each year our First and Second graders host their own nights for sharing their writing.

First graders write poetry collections. Mrs. Costa and the First Graders work hard on all kinds of poetry and finish with a wonderful evening of poetry reading.

The Second graders wrote and illustrated their own short stories. (Special thanks to Mrs. Cintron for doing all the typing!)
