 Second semester reminders:

-Now that we are in the fourth quarter we are no longer doing test retakes. Please review and study for each test with your child. 

-If a sentence is not rephrased, have correct punctuation, or spelled correctly (when a word bank is given) then answers will be counted off. Students need to be responsible for writing the answer correctly.


-Mobymax is a weekly quiz grade for 4th quarter, same as 2nd and 3rd quarter! Mobymax grades are taken on Mondays. In the rare occurence that their time was not recorded correctly, the students must have a written note on the Monday it is checked, explaining the situation and how many minutes they worked.

-Math Magicians will meet in Mrs. Ulmer's room from 3:30-4:00 every Monday until April 24th.

-To check your child's MobyMax time you have to go to the "Time" icon and click the right arrow to find the tabs labeled Math, Fact Fluency, and Test Prep Math. You have to add their minutes from those three categories to count for their 30 minutes. Looking at the total will not show you their correct time. Students should be working 30 minutes a week Monday-Sunday. The website for MobyMax is in the front of their agenda along with their name and password. www.mobymax.com/ks173




Miss Lindeman- Biography

Hello everyone,

My name is Emily Lindeman, and I am the new 3rd grade English Language Arts and Science/ Social Studies teacher. I was born and raised in Wichita, Ks and attended Magdalen and Kapaun Mt. Carmel. I then went on to Benedictine College where I received a Bachelor of Science degree in Elementary Education this past May. I was incredibly blessed to have the opportunity to receive a Catholic education for most of my life, and I am excited to serve this Diocese as it once served me. I truly believe that God has called me to teach at St. Thomas Aquinas, and I am looking forward to this school year! When I am not teaching, you can find me in my hammock reading a good book, hiking, or spending time at the lake. Know of my prayers for you and your family this year. Don't hesitate to contact me with any comments or concerns!

Sincerely, Miss Lindeman

Mrs. Ulmer - Biography

Hello! I am Kelly Ulmer (maiden name-Rathert) and this is my fourth year at St. Thomas Aquinas. I grew up in Wichita and attended St. Thomas Aquinas and then Kapaun Mount Carmel. I attended the University of Kansas and then graduated from Wichita State with a Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education in 2012. I was inspired as a young girl by the teachers here at St. Thomas and knew that I wanted to be a teacher. It has always been my dream to teach at St. Thomas Aquinas, I am so glad to be home!

In my free time I enjoy swimming, waterskiing, reading, and anything KUI am excited to teach Math and Religion in third grade this year!
