Prayer is an essential part of each school day at Saint Alphonsus. On Thursday, March 13 our first and second grade students hosted a Prayer Assembly, which included a dramatization of The Lion & The Mouse.
Our next Prayer Assembly, happening April 4, will be lead by our 4th grade students. Parents are welcome to attend!
Second grade has chosen to collect socks for the homeless as our service project for the month of October. Please help them by having your student bring in new socks for men and women. There is a drop off box by the front office or you can send them in with your student. Mrs. Cintron will deliver the socks to Queen Anne Food Bank at the end of the month. Thank you!
Both Mike Curato and Samantha Berger (best friends in real life!) will be at school on Thursday, 26 April to read the new picture book they made together to us, talk about their lives as a writer (Samantha Berger), and as an author/illustrator (Mike Curato), and to answer student questions. Books will be available for purchase at the event, so that your child can get a signed keepsake, personalized by the both authors.
Samantha Berger has written numerous picture books including Crankenstein, A Crankenstein Valentine, Witch Spa, Snoozefest, and Martha Doesn’t Say Sorry, which won a Parent’s Choice Award Honor. When she isn’t writing, she’s doing voice-overs, traveling the world, and helping rescue dogs. Samantha splits her time between New York City and California, and she invites you to visit her online at samanthaberger.com.
