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!)

We’re Marching!

17th of May Festival Parade

Let’s Meet at 5:15 pm on Thursday

Meet at NW 60th St. and 26th Ave NW – there’s a nice little grassy spot. Look for the St. Al’s spirit wear or school sweatshirts, our school banner, and a familiar face or two. All children must be accompanied by an adult (either you or another adult you have communicated with in advance).

Be sure to be dressed in your favorite St. Al’s spirit wear!

Complete Necessary Paperwork in advance

ALL Participants need to complete the following documents and bring it with you:

Individual Hold Harmless Agreement

There are copies in the school office and we’ll have a few extras with us on Thursday.

Parade Starts at 6 pm

Once we know where we will be starting from – the parade organizers line us up – we’ll move from our meeting spot over to the starting location and then join a couple of super cool cars and trucks as our escorts.

Parade Route

The parade route begins at the corner of NW 62nd and 24th Avenue NW. The route follows south to Market Street and eastward to Bergen Place park, then turns right onto 22nd and continues south down Ballard Avenue and ends at Lone St.

Can’t Make the Meeting Time and still want to March?

May Madness

SCRIP May Madness!

Here is how Scrip May Madness works:

Retailers give St. Alphonsus a percentage for every Scrip card sold. For example, if you buy a $100 Fred Meyer card for your next shopping trip, Fred Meyer gives St. Alphonsus a certain percentage back and you spend that $100 card buying groceries. There is no extra cost for you, but you just gave 4% back to St. Alphonsus on your Scrip card purchase.

For the month of May, the rebate amount of your Scrip purchase will be added to the other families in your child’s class and the class with the highest averaged dollar amount will win an end of the year party.

Anyone can buy and use Scrip

You, your family, your friends, and even your co-workers! So please support your class and the school and stock up on all those grocery, gas, and/or gift Scrip.

Scrip cards may be purchased:

  • Online at www.shopwithscrip.com (enrollment code A28AF4B59532)
  • Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday mornings at 8:15-8:45 am in The Commons (small cafeteria) at school
  • Wednesday mornings at 8:30 am in the Preschool classroom
  • Friday afternoon at 2:45-3:15 pm in The Commons (small cafeteria) at school
  • After all weekend Masses in the back vestibule
  • At the Parish office during the week
