Dear Seton Families,
Many thanks to those who have attended SWOT meetings this week. In the coming two weeks, there will be meetings for families of students in third through eighth grades. We hope you will attend these very important sessions which will help us in our future planning. We are excitedly looking forward to our gala auction in just a few more weeks. The RSVP deadline is March 22nd. Please send in your reservations by the deadline. We can’t wait to celebrate Seton with you on this special evening of A Night in Napa!

Panther Priorities

Re-Registration Information/ Step Up for Students
Please continue to send in re-registrations so that your child is assured a place for the 2019-2020 school year. Many thanks to those who have already sent them for the next school year. Also, please make sure you visit the Step Up for Students website to renew income-based scholarship applications for the 2019-2020 school year.

Lost and Found
Many of our students must be missing items because 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.

Used Uniform Closet
Open every Thursday from 2:50-3:30 p.m. in the cafeteria.

SWOT Analysis Meetings

Please plan to attend the SWOT meetings, which are crucial for our future planning. Family feedback is important! All sessions will be held in the 8th grade classroom beginning at 6PM. You may enter from the parking lot which faces the middle school building. The 8th grade room is the room in the middle. You don’t need to reserve a spot, but please do try to attend the session scheduled for your child’s age group. If you have children in multiple grades, you are welcome to attend each session for the corresponding grade SWOT analysis meeting. Each session should last about one hour. Thank you in advance for your important contribution to this process! Should you have any questions about meetings, dates, etc. you may email Ms. Rendon at office@seseton.org

Lenten Rice Bowls ~ Message from Mr. Ganse:

As you know, we are in the great liturgical season of Lent. It is meant for us to take time to reflect upon our lives and to make necessary changes to prepare us for the awesomeness of Holy Easter. Part of that preparation is our annual Rice Bowl campaign through Catholic Relief Services. Your child has already received a Rice Bowl and is slowly contributing to this great cause of meeting the needs of others in many places throughout the world. Our Rice Bowl campaign will be ending on Friday, April 12. Please count all the money that your family has collected and write one check out to St. Elizabeth Seton Catholic School. The school will count all the check amounts and then write one check to Catholic Relief Services on behalf of our whole school community. Thank you in advance for your generosity and participation in the Spirit of the Lord!

BLUE ZONE

When natural sunlight hits the skin, it triggers the body’s production of Vitamin D, which is known as the “sunshine vitamin.” It is a crucial ingredient for overall good health; it protects against inflammation, helps muscles, improves brain function and lowers high blood pressure.
