Dear Seton Families,
Next week our students in second through eighth grade will begin taking the TerraNova standardized achievement tests. Please keep them in your prayers! Also, invitations to our gala auction have been mailed. Please do join us for this wonderful event! We hope that all our families will attend this year to make memories, share fellowship and celebrate Seton. Have a wonderful week!
Spring Picture Day
Wednesday, February 27th is spring picture day. Dress in your Sunday best if having pictures taken. Those not having photos taken must wear school dress uniforms as this is a mass day.
Many thanks to those who have already sent in their registrations for the next school year. Please continue to send them in so that your child is assured a place for the 2019-2020 school year.
Last call for box tops! Please send these in no later than Monday, February 25th. Thank you!
Lost and Found
The lost and found bin is overflowing with shirts, jackets, lunchboxes and other items. Students should check the bin in the parish center before or after school to locate lost items. Unclaimed items that have been in the bin for more than a month eventually will be donated.
TITLE 1 Letters
An important letter went home to all Seton families about generating Title l funds. Please make sure this letter is returned to your child’s homeroom teacher.

TERRANOVA TESTING – Important!
