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 marcom@stalseattle.org.

Do you have a great chili recipe you would be willing to make for our Bingo kitchen to sell?

We plan to sell each serving bowl of chili for $1.

All you need to do is make a pot (at least 8 servings please) and let Maura Cannon know you’re bringing it in. All chili makers will earn 2 parent volunteer hours.

And please email Maura (maurakcannon@live.com) in advance so our Bingo kitchen can plan accordingly. Thanks!
