School Open House 1/28

Seton will host an Open House for new prospective families on Sunday, Jan. 28 from 10am-1:30pm. We need parent volunteers as tour guides. Please reach out to Mrs. Niebuhr if you can help.

Speakers at Masses

We need speakers to represent Seton at area parish masses for the final weekend of Catholic Schools Week on Feb. 3-4. If you are a parishioner at SES Church, St. Peter, St. William, San Marco, St. Finbarr, or St. Leo, we need your help to promote Catholic education at your parish. (St. Agnes and St. John the Evangelist are covered). A 3-minute speech/announcement will be provided for parents or students. Family volunteer and/or student service hours will be credited. If you can help, please contact Mrs. Groch at Thanks for your support!

Let the Games Begin!

Classes will be competing in a fun Penny Wars during Catholic Schools Week. The class with the most points wins a pizza party! (see flyer for details)

Grandparents/Special Friends Day – Feb. 2nd

One of the highlights of our CSW celebration is dedicated to Grandparents. Attached is an invitation to this year’s Grandparents/Special Friends Day taking place Friday, Feb. 2. We begin this special day with Grandparents and students at SES Church for mass at 9am, followed by classroom visits, refreshments, photos, a craft, etc. We ask that you kindly share this invitation with your child’s Grandparents (or a special friend if no grandparents can attend). No RSVP is needed.

Thank you for helping us celebrate the important people in our students’ lives as we cultivate love, faith, and family!
