Assessments for teams will take place beginning the week of October 30th (unless your child’s team is in Soccer Playoffs that week). For 4th and 5th grade, teams will be separated by gender and the teams will split up as evenly as possible. For 6th – 8th grade there will be Varsity and JV teams for both Boys and Girls. Independent assessors will be evaluating to separate the teams according to CYO rules. Practices will start the week after assessments.
Games start the weekend of 11/16/2018. There is a week off for Thanksgiving, then one game each weekend for the first three weekends of December. There are then four games (one per weekend) between January 5th and January 27th. Playoffs will be held for 6th – 8th grade the first two weeks of February.
Your child’s specific practice and game schedule will be communicated by your child’s coach following the assignment of teams.
If you have any questions, please contact Matt Deines via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 206-300-0741.
We need you to look through you drawers and closets for last years Under Armour basketball/volleyball jersey and shorts. We are missing a significant amount of them (about 100). Please, please return them. They are to be re-used to keep costs down over the next few years. This also goes for students who played volleyball including the high school teams.
You can return uniforms to the office. Please return them ASAP but no later than Tuesday 10/9. Thanks!
I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. Below you will find this week’s event info and policy/procedure reminders.

Tuesday, Thursday, Wednesday, Friday: SCRIP is on sale!
Check the SCRIP page on our website for more details about purchasing SCRIP and look for our new signs on school sale days. You can also purchase at the parish office.
Uniforms: Our school sets ourselves apart from other institutions in many ways—our knowledge and practice of the Catholic faith, our academic programs, etc.. One important way we stand out is through our uniforms. Our uniform policy exists to assist students and parents on how to appropriately dress for a day at St. Alphonsus. It is such a nice sight to see students looking their best in our uniform each morning, ready to start the day together. I would like to encourage each family to take a moment and review our uniform guidelines as we have been noticing a few issues with socks, skirts, and other clothing items. Teachers will be assisting me in addressing dress code concerns and we may contact you if a situation arises. If you have any questions about our uniforms please contact our school office or your student’s teacher.
Remember that navy blue shirts are now allowed for Pre-K through 4th grade, in addition to the white shirts previously worn.
Finally, I would like to say thank you to all of the individuals who helped at Bingo on Friday night and the Welcome Breakfast on Sunday. Bingo was a wonderful event to behold and I am so thankful for the parent volunteers who help make it possible. On Sunday, our Student Council members were on hand to welcome parishioners, hand out bulletins, and bring up the gifts at the 10am mass. Thank you to the volunteers and students who assisted with the Welcome Breakfast after mass. Parents and volunteers served the parish community as the students represented our school.
