Weekly Update 5/7

Hello KA Families,

It has brought me so much joy to “meet” with the students over Zoom and celebrate their growth during our assessment meetings.  Despite the unusual circumstances of remote learning, the students are continuing to grow in their academic skills.  This is in large part due to your commitment to providing the structure and dedication to “doing school” at home.  Thank you!  If you haven’t already scheduled an assessment time, please contact me asap, thank you!

Thank you for continued your partnership in their learning, it truly takes a village!

We have two exciting things happening next week!!

  1. Mrs. Geppert and I are planning to do “drive-bys” next week to visit each of your homes, to drop off a couple of special surprises!  If you are home, we would love to see you! (safely, at a six foot distance, of course.)  We will have masks and gloves.  If you are not home, we can leave the surprise at your doorstep.
  2. Friday (May 15th) will be a “field trip day!” Since we were unable to visit the Everett Fire Station for our spring field trip, we will bring the field trip home instead.  We will have a VIRTUAL field trip to a fire station with videos and fun activities, but no written work that day.  Enjoy!

As always, if you have any questions, concerns, or need assistance with anything, please let me know!

Continued prayers for health and peace in all families,

Mrs. Katie White

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!
