Living Wax Museum – Mon., May 17- Hosted by 5th and 6th Grade!

Students have researched a historical/famous person who is influential or made an impact in our world. As a wax figure, they will portray and tell about that person for the rest of the school. 5th and 6th grade families are welcome to attend the evening Living Wax Museum event on Monday, May 17 from 5:30 p.m. – 6:30 p.m. We are looking forward to great learning experience for all!

Seton Band Performance- May 21

We will be showcasing the talents of Seton Band students on Friday, May 21 at 5pm in the school gym. Although we’ve had a challenging year, our Band students under the guidance of Ms. Angela Currier, have made wonderful progress. We are excited for this opportunity for beginning 5th grade and middle school Band students to demonstrate their talents and hard work. Hope to see you there!

Message from the Blue Zones Project

The Blue Zones Project has a free well-being activity for all SW Florida residents called the Real Age Test. They are looking for as many people over the age of 18 to take 10 minutes and fill it out. Results are strictly private, and within a short amount of time you will get the results of how your real age correlates to your chronological age. (When asked for an organization, fill in “Not Applicable”). You will then have an opportunity to receive tips on how to lower your real age and become healthier. https://bzpsouthwestflorida.sharecare.com
