Parents’ Club Executive Board Elections


Parents’ Club Executive Board Elections

It’s election season for our Parents’ Club Board. Our Parents’ Club is an important component of our St. Al’s community that both facilitates community building and fundraising events. The events knit our community together, and our fundraising commitments fill the budget gaps.

Please read below and familiarize yourself with our list of candidates. These candidates will be joining three current board members, for a total of six members. We are grateful to the following parents for their willingness to serve.

Voting opens Thursday, May 16 and will close Thursday, May 30. Click on the link below to vote online. Please take the time to vote and show your support for the Parents’ Club.

2019-2020 Parents’ Club Executive Board Candidates

Christiana Cairns

My name is Christiana (Chris) Cairns.  My son, Alister, has been a student at St. Al’s for 3 years now (K-2nd) and is soon to be a 3rd Grader.  My husband and I have been together for nearly 20 years, dividing our time between Seattle and places around the globe.  I love volunteering, organizing events and getting my hands dirty.  Literally.  I love to garden and will find any excuse to dig in, even if that means pulling weeds out of a sidewalk garden while I am on a walk.  The reason my husband and I chose St. Al’s is the close sense of community and the incredible feeling as you walk through the doors of family.

 

Liz Powell

Hello! I would like to be considered for the St. Al’s Parents Club Board for a few reasons:

St. Al’s has been a blessing to our family. Our son Ronan started at our school as a 6th grader last fall. It was a big step taking Ronan out of public school, but we had a hunch St. Al’s would be good for him. After nearly a year of watching Ronan thrive, we can say St. Al’s has been a huge blessing in cultivating his love of learning/academics, robotics, spirituality and friendships.

I enjoy and have experience serving on boards, creating campaigns and events. I have found boards to be a rewarding way to give back. During the past 10 years, I have held multi-year positions with the FIRST Robotics Advisory Board in Seattle (school age STEM program), Antioch University Seattle and currently Seattle Rotary Club, where I serve as Membership Chair.

I am ready to serve the St. Al’s parents community. We felt welcomed from the first day and I would like to pay forward the generosity by serving more deliberately next year. I will be Room Parent for 7th grade boys next year, which will hopefully enhance my contribution and insights I bring to the Parent’s Club Board.

A little background on me: I am owner of RE/MAX On Market in Ballard (with my husband, John Manning) and am also a successful realtor who works with clients to buy and/or sell homes. Prior to my real estate career, I spent 25 years as a public relations, marketing and branding executive in Seattle, Portland, SF/Bay Area and France. Most recently, I led the Pac NW consumer brand team for Edelman, the largest public relations firm in the world, working with some of our region’s top brands, including Alaska Seafood Marketing Institute, Charles Smith Wine, Microsoft, T-Mobile, Theo Chocolate, Value Village and Starbucks. I grew up on Bainbridge Island and graduated from the University of Oregon (yes, I am a Duck!)

Thank you for your consideration!

CYO Track and Field starts soon:
Register your 4th – 8th graders now!

3rd graders are welcome to join at practice.

The daffodils are blooming and sun-breaks are emerging – this can only mean one thing: track season is here! Please don’t forget to register: visit the SportsPilot link and click “REGISTER HERE”.   Scholarships available too, just email cyo-scholarships@stjohnsea.org.

Running events include distance, sprints and relays of varying lengths. In addition to the running events CYO Track and Field features high jump, long jump, shot put, softball throw and turbojav.  8th graders have the opportunity to participate in the Pentathlon.

  • Practices begin Monday, March 26 and run to May 31 (no practice Memorial Day)
  • Practices: Mon. and Wed. 6:30 pm-8 pm at the Ingraham HS Track
  • Coaches can be very flexible on practice attendance for kids in conflicting sports programs, such as club soccer, baseball or Girls on the Run – please reach out to Coaches Mike or Sam with questions.
  • Runners compete according to grade/gender and we need at least 8 runners per grade/gender to run two team relays.

Kids don’t need to have any track experience—they just need a good attitude and willingness to try. Coach Mike Martinez (distance runners) and Coach Sam Lipscomb (sprinters) are both fabulous and fun, and welcome any parents can come who can help with practices and run with kids. Lorna Luebbe and Nelle Steele will be the team coordinators and help with field event practice.
