Welcome to Kindergarten! My name is Maria Crowley and I will be your child’s Kindergarten teacher. This will be my 28th year at Saint Elizabeth Seton School. My assistant is Mrs. Debbie Andrews. This will be Mrs. Andrew’s 22nd year at this school. I am looking forward to the start of the new school year, as well as meeting the children who will be coming to the Kindergarten class.
Our precious little ones...
Elementary School at
St. Elizabeth Seton
Our carefully curated team of teachers are there for our kids day in and day out. Academically, emotionally and spiritually developing our students is done with a care and understanding that is second to none. These are the heroes at SES.
Welcome to Kindergarten!
Thank you for choosing SES.
Beginnings are exciting!
We are firm believers that parents and educators need to work together as a team to help our children become successful, life-long learners. Communication, organization, consistency and FAITH are the key.

Suggested summer activities before PK3:
Read! Read! Read!
Visit the libraries or bookstores for story times and read books every night at your house.
Don’t stress!! Remember going to the potty is a control issue. Encourage! Remind! Celebrate! Teach your child to pull their underwear & shorts up and down all by themselves. Have them practice wiping themselves too! Teachers are there to supervise the bathroom.
Give them a simple chore (setting the table, picking up clothes or toys…) and LET THEM DO IT ALL BY THEMSELVES!! (no matter how long it takes or if it isn’t done perfectly)
Talk to them about everything. Ask questions. Encourage discussions. Take time to listen to their answers. Point out colors and shapes in the world around you. Teach them to follow directions. Ask them to do something and praise them when they complete it correctly. They need to be able to follow directions to succeed in school.
Relax, play and have fun!!
