Hello, my name is Ms. Kathleen Curran and it is an honor and privilege to work with you in the education and development of your child.  I am a product of the Catholic Schools of the Diocese of Springfield, and I received my BA and MAT from the College of Our Lady of the Elms.  It has been my pleasure over the course of my career to serve as an educator in both the public and Catholic school systems, and to have taught the last eight years here at St. Thomas the Apostle School. As a product of Catholic education, I have a deep love and appreciation for quality intellectual formation and the values of faith and service. It is these principles which set the tone for my classroom. I look forward to working with you and your child in helping them to reach their full potential.

     Our NYC field trip has been planned for Wednesday, April 25.  We will be visiting the Central Park Zoo and seeing School of Rock on Broadway.  Permission forms have been sent home and payment is due by Friday, February 9.  Thank you!

      Memory Book meetings will be held on Thursdays from 1:45 to 3:00 in the computer lab. Order forms have already been handed out.

       Spirit Week 2018 begins on Monday, February 12!  Our topic is the Winter Olympic Games 2018.  We will be doing math, reading, and writing activities with the Olympics as our topic.  An activity with our buddies in grade 2 has also been planned.  Monday is a dress down day and our color for Monday’s opening ceremony is blue.
