*Fund Run is this Friday!  Please continue to turn in your Fund Run pledges and thank you for your support.


Lap Counting: Calling all lap counters! Lap counting is very FUN and Very important! We need lots & lots of volunteers to be on hand Friday, May 31 between 8:30 AM and 12:00 PM to count the laps of run participants. There will be 7 lap sessions that day and one session only requires ½ hour of your time. Please sign up for a minimum of two sessions. This committee also assists teachers in organizing students for their assigned run session. If you are interested in being a lap counter, there is a meeting at 8:30am out on the field to give you instructions.

Clean up: After the Fund Running has commenced at 12:00, we will have a lot of clean up to do to get ready for the awards assembly happening at 1:45! Many hands make light work 🙂

There are many opportunities to help before the event, the day of the event, and after the event! Watch the Monday News for updated Fund Run volunteer opportunities and email Aleisha Webb at [email protected] with any volunteer questions you may have.

*The children can wear athletic gear and their new Fund Run shirts this Friday for Fund Run.

*On Thursday, they can wear uniform bottoms and an old Fund Run shirt.

Curricular Information:

Math:  We worked very hard on our big math assessment this week!  We are still doing our last unit on geometry but have finished all math assessments this year.  We will still have a couple of timed multiplication quick checks though.


Religion:  We prepared for our Monday Morning Prayer.  Our school focus this year was gratitude.  We prayed a few Bible verses on gratitude.  We then took that focus and reflected on why we are grateful to be at St. Al’s.  It was a kind of wrap up to our school year as well.  We then wrote reflective essays on why we are grateful.  A few of those essays were shared at Monday Morning Prayer.  All of those essays will be passed to Mrs. Hirst to read in preparation for teaching these kids next year.


Science:  We continued our study of electricity by creating parallel circuits and tried to light up 2 light bulbs at once.  We reflected on our experiments in our Science journals.



Social Studies:  We continued reading about Spokane History.


Language Arts:  We continued learning about subjects, predicates, and verbs.  We also continued learning cursive.  I finished final reading assessments this week.
