Welcome to 1st Grade!
Hello! I am Miss Bucy, the first grade teacher at St. Pius X. This is my fourth year of teaching, but my second year at St. Pius X. I attended St. Monica Catholic School on Mercer Island from kindergarten through eighth grade. I had such a wonderful experience there and the teachers were so inspiring, I decided to become a teacher so I can help children the same way my teachers helped me. I earned my Bachelor's of Arts in Education at Central Washington University in Ellensburg, WA. When I am not teaching, I love to travel, read, go hiking, go camping, and spend time with my family.
My goal as a teacher is to help my students learn about the world around them and to help them see how they can change the world. I strive to help my students be the best students, people, and Christians that they can be. I look forward to working with them this year and I cannot wait to see how much they grow!
If you ever have any questions or concerns, you can email me at email@example.com!
I hope you all had a restful and wonderful Thanksgiving break with your students and families!
Today I handed out field trip forms for the students to bring home for you to sign. We are going on a field trip on Thursday, December 13th to the Everett PUD Auditorium to watch a children's ballet called "A Storybook Nutcracker". There is more information on the form and on the letter attached to it. If you would like to drive, please indicate so and how many students you can take on the form. I need the forms signed and money to be returned to school no later than Monday, December 3rd!!
