Hurricane Irma Relief
We continue to be blessed with assistance as we rebuild. Greenwich Catholic School adopted St. Elizabeth Seton School and donated the proceeds of their book fair. The school worked with Mrs. Tenbarge to provide us with over $2000 worth of Scholastic books for all our classes! Arriving on Tuesday, were four large FEDEX boxes filled with these great books.

We are also grateful to Gustavo Leon and Jorge Flores owners of Tree Scaping of Naples for clearing the debris along 53rd Terrace SW. Our children can walk to their cars in safety without the debris along the sidewalks. Finally, while opening the mail on Thursday, another generous check came to our school. Thank you to Father George Ratzmann, Pastor of St. Willliam Catholic Church for their very generous contribution to help us rebuild.

If you have any questions, please email Nichole Eastman (eastman@seseton.org)

Prepared for Class
On a daily basis, the front office is receiving late instruments, classwork, assignments, and lunch drop offs. We ask that you work in partnership with us, and have your children ensure all homework, assignments etc. are packed in their book bag each evening. With regards to lunches, students are welcome to purchase a lunch through Something So Yummy or bring a packed lunch. Please refer to p. 51 in the handbook about specifics of our lunch program. We have a small staff and late drop offs of school items, that are expected to be brought in from home, are disruptive and take time away from their work.

Seton Rock Program- Homework, Friday, October 27, 2017
Students have homework this weekend because it is time to hide the rock! Students will be bringing home a rock. Please take it out into the community this week and hide it somewhere. The park is a great place! Parents, please take a picture of your child(ren) hiding the rock and email it to Mrs. Lucarelli (lucarelli@seseton.org) so she can post on the Seton Facebook Page. In your email, please tell Mrs. Lucarelli where the rock was hidden. Enjoy!
