Dear Seton Families,
Have you seen the great new look in our courtyard? Beautiful new sails were installed this week! These create a smart sunshield for this area which will be used as an outdoor learning space. Next Friday is the Father Daughter Dance. We hope many families will participate in this festive event. See below for more information and additional news.
