When you come to visiting day, please bring a family picture to add to the class ¨family tree¨.  The students do not need to wear their uniform for visiting day (unless they want to!)

School Supplies:  The school supply list is posted on the SMM school website at

Please note that most of the supplies are used communally in the classroom by all students.  However, please label the following supplies for your child:  headphones, water bottle, folders.

Extra Clothes:  Each student will need a spare set of clothes, to be kept in the classroom, in case of a spill or accident.  This does not need to be a uniform! Please send a pair of pants, shirt, underwear, and socks, in a large ziploc bag labeled with your child´s name.

Lunch and Snack:  Each school day, please send your child with a healthy morning snack and lunch.  Please note that due to food allergies, the kindergarten classrooms are NUT FREE.  Please make sure your child has their refillable water with them daily.

The class assignments (KA and KB) will not be finalized until later this month.  You will receive an email from the school office right before school starts, stating your child´s teacher and class list.  We are looking forward to meeting you and your child soon!

Mrs. White is so excited for another great year in KA! She has been at SMM since 2014, and has been teaching in Catholic schools since 2002. Over the years, Mrs. White has taught many grade levels and subjects, but kindergarten is her absolute favorite! She loves being part of the early learning process and seeing the amazing connections that kindergarteners make every day. Mrs. White graduated with a BA in education and history from CWU (go Wildcats!) and earned a M.Ed. from Seattle U (go Redhawks!) She lives in Everett with her husband and two sons. Some of Mrs. White's favorites, in no particular order: Dogs, Chocolate, Hiking, Books, and Snow!
