Blue Zones Certified!

We are happy to announce that St. Elizabeth Seton is now a Blue Zones certified school! In addition to our challenging academic curriculum, faith education, and emphasis on self-less service, our goal was to create greater awareness of the importance of physical health and wellness for our students. Thus, we hope to improve the overall quality of life for everyone in our community. We began this initiative last year partnering with Naples Community Hospital in their Blue Zones project. BZ focuses on 9 key components to living a healthy and balanced life with focus on family and community, good nutrition, physical movement, faith and purpose. We are happy to be part of this community-wide effort. Stay tuned for information on our ribbon cutting ceremony coming soon!

Back to School Means Back to Mass

Now that summer vacations are over and school is underway, we emphasize the importance of families attending mass each Sunday. The renewal and fresh start of the school year is also an opportunity to renew and deepen our faith through regular attendance at Mass as a family. Our students look up to us (educators and parents) as examples of living our faith and consistently practicing what we preach. It is important they see us place mass as a priority in our lives and in theirs—Jesus at the center. The commitment you have made to Catholic education should also be supported by your commitment to your parish.
