Dear Seton Families,
Two weeks into the school year, and we’re settling into a good routine with everyone. We hope that you are getting into the rhythm of the school week, and wish you a relaxing, restful weekend. Here are announcements for this week:
No doubt it has been an adjustment to get up earlier and get to school on time in the last couple of weeks. This is just a reminder about the importance of arriving to school on time so that students can participate in morning prayers and then move directly to class. Teachers begin instruction immediately after gathering in the parish center for prayers at 7:50 a.m., so it’s very important that students are here on time to begin their day. Thank you for your cooperation with this!
HOME AND SCHOOL ASSOCIATION (H.A.S.A.)
