Dear Seton Families,
TerraNova testing is over, Lent has begun, and with the start of Daylight Savings Time this weekend, it seems like spring is around the corner. Note that next Friday, March 15th is a half day for students, with the afternoon set aside for parent conferences. Invitations have been sent for our gala auction, A Night in Napa. Please RSVP no later than March 22nd. We hope you will join us!

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.

No Lunch Service March 11-15

Blue Zone

Some vital functions of the body like digestion, circulation, and excretion, require a sufficient intake of water. Water also energizes the body and keeps us hydrated through the day. Lacking the required amount of water in the body can create problems. Encourage children to keep drinking water at frequent intervals to maintain good health.
