Welcome Back 4th Grade!

 

Welcome back,

My name is Ashley Mackel and I have 2 daughters Morgan (4th) and Molly (1st) here at Saint Paul the Apostle school. My Co-Room Parent is Molly Moursi, she too has 2 daughters, Libby (8th) and Cleo (4th). We will be updating the 4th grade page regularly to keep you all in the loop as well as contacting you all through email which is sent out through a system called Constant Contact. Both Molly and I will always be available to answer as many questions as possible and collect your concerns to be then handed to the appropriate person. We are looking forward to a “Back to Normal” year with our resilient class of 2026.

🙂

Message from your Teachers

Dear 4th Grade Families,
Welcome back to school!! We are so excited to be your 4th grade homeroom teachers this 2021-2022 school year! We will be doing fun activities, reviewing class policies, and getting to know one another these first couple weeks of school! Looking forward to building our 4th grade community and the year ahead!
This will be Ms. Fisher’s fourth year teaching at St. Paul, and third year teaching the 4th grade. Ms. Fisher loves playing soccer and tennis, her dog Winnie, and just about any beach activity! Helping students develop their love of reading and writing is what she loves most about being a teacher!
This is Ms. Mizo’s third year at St. Paul. She loves teaching Math, Science, and Religion and is super excited to meet the new 4th grade class. She loves art and spends her free time drawing, visiting art museums, and attending live concerts and theatre.
Sincerely,
Ms. Fisher & Ms. Mizo

 

 

SchoolPass

On Tuesday you will receive a welcome email from SchoolPass, the app we used last year for wellness checks. This year we will not only use it for daily wellness checks, but also for classroom end-of-the-day sign-outs. 

As a change from last year, you will add parents, family, childcare providers, etc. to the app as Drivers. Since we will not be using the carline function this year, DO NOT enter or add your students to another family’s carpool.  

  • Each morning please complete the wellness check (this includes a temperature check) for each student. You don’t have to show it as you enter campus, but we will be monitoring it at the beginning of the school day. Everyone MUST complete it each day to help ensure that we stay on top of the health and well-being of the community.  
  • FOR PICK-UP
    • When you come on campus to pick up your student(s), you will need to go into the app, select pick-up and then sign them out.  
    • If your student is going to After-School Care, you don’t need to sign them out. The teachers will add them to the After-School Care roster each day.

After-School Care

After-School Care will be available this year. If you are interested in enrolling on a regular or drop-in basis, submit an After-School Care Enrollment Form to Mayora Hiney (mhiney@sp-apostle.org) before the first day of school.
