MESSAGE FROM THE PRINCIPAL
Hello St. Al Family and Friends,
In light of this week’s events, I decided to share a quote from Martin Luther King Jr and the Prayer of St. Francis with our students this morning. “Darkness cannot drive out darkness, only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate, only love can do that.”—Martin Luther King Jr. Continue reading

Happy Native American Heritage Month! During the month of November, we’ve been reading stories that celebrate the history and traditions of our nation’s first peoples. As we all know, our land wasn’t discovered so much as it was conquered and, with that turmoil, the native people who lived here first have been given a side note in history. Our goal this month is to share the stories and rich histories of our country’s first caretakers and to amplify their voices so we can appreciate all we have learned from them. One word we have learned in our read-aloud is Otsaliheliga (oh-jah-LEE-hey-lee-gah), the Cherokee word for “we are grateful”. And, one of our favorite stories so far has been Fry Bread: A Native American Family Story by Kevin Noble Maillard. Don’t be surprised if your primary grade student is interested in making some fry bread soon!
Scout & Crew 100 Ballard will be selling Christmas trees on our parking lot again this year for their annual fundraiser!
