Mrs. Follesé’s Class
Hello Families of 401,
We are in the season of Lent. We have been discussing ways we can grow this liturgical season through prayer, different forms of fasting, and almsgiving. The children brought home a purple 2-sided paper with a Lenten calendar and an Ash Wednesday prayer (which can be prayed all throughout Lent). This can be hung on the refrigerator to help keep track of our journey through Lent. The children were challenged to choose a special task each day during lent to help themselves grow in holiness toward Our Lord. Thank you for supporting them.
Please sell and return raffle tickets ASAP! We need them all accounted for. There are still a number of outstanding tickets. We appreciate the support for our school!
We are researching our topic for Academic/STEM Fair that will be on April 10th. A bright orange packet with all the details has been sent home. We have a unique opportunity to send 3 students to the “Big Bang Catholic Schools STEM Fair” at Holy Family High School on April 21st. Students who would like to be considered for this STEM fair must do a project related to science, technology, engineering, or math. More information and upcoming due dates can be found on our assignment page. Please contact me if you have any questions about our Academic/STEM Fair.
Even though the weather is beginning to warm up slowly, cold weather items STILL need to be brought each day for recess! Coats, snow pants, boots, hats, and mittens are needed every day for recess. Depending on the day, they may need ALL warm pieces of clothing. Please remind your son/daughter to bring these items. This is MINNESOTA! You never know what the weather will be each day!
As always, please take the time each night to review the assignments in the assignment notebook (and the webpage weekly) with your child. They must keep organized or it will be hard to stay up to date with assignments. Thank you for your support and encouragement as we guide our students toward success and responsibility.
Thank you for your support! God Bless.
Mrs. Christine Follesé

Hello 4th Grade families! My name is Miss Christine Bauer and I’m so excited to begin this new adventure with you at Epiphany Catholic School! I’m 27 years old and this will be my 5th year of teaching.. I began my teaching career in a 2nd grade classroom and then taught 1st Grade for the past three years. I’ve recently moved to Minnesota from the state of Delaware which has been a huge adjustment, but I’m loving being here with everyone! Going into this school year comes such joy knowing that I get to share in your child’s 4th grade year with them! We have lots of fun things planned and I can’t wait to begin!
Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or concerns.
Miss Christine Bauer
