NOTE FROM THE PRINCIPAL
Happy 100th Day and Happy Valentine’s Day tomorrow! As we celebrate two favorite holidays, we are taking a bit of time to thank God for all he has given to us. Next week is winter break and everyone is excitedly awaiting our time off!
Once again, Seton students have out performed students from other Catholic and public schools! McQuaid’s list of Xavier Scholarship winners has been posted and we have three studentswho made the list! Only students landing in the top 10% on the exam receive this award! Congratulations to
6th grader Will DiMarco and 5th graders Mathew Atalla and Dean Giess!
We have also heard that Gianluca Fallone has been recognized at Aquinas with a scholarship! Bravo Gianluca!
As we hear from other schools, we will pass on the great news of our students’ achievements!
24 TOURNAMENT WINNERS
During Catholic Schools Week, we held our first ever
“24 Tournament” and it was a hit. This years winners were:
Caelyn Ford, Julia Milano and Siena Fallone!
24 allows students the freedom to make mistakes without being judged. It encourages familiarity with math facts and thinking outside the box! Object of the game is to make the number 24 from the four numbers shown on the board. You can add, subtract, multiply and divide. It has caught on in our grades 4-6 classrooms and is even being played during recess!
CATHOLIC SCHOOLS WEEK
Catholic Schools Week ended with a bang! Because of the snow days, Friday was spent cramming in everything we possibly could! Saturday we extended our Scholastic Book fair and enjoyed the Winter Carnival. Thank you to everyone who came in, made popcorn, help with the Book Fair, helped with the Winter Carnival, and everything else… Because of your dedication, everything turned out beautifully. We are all grateful. It was great to see so many alumni helping out with the Winter Carnival. They look forward to coming in and spending time here! A special thank you goes out to Christine Morris for running the entire prize table at the Winter Carnival. Christine never looks for the limelight but is always quietly going about what needs to be done!
Registration has been steadily coming in and we continue to schedule tours. Our 6th graders serve as our school ambassadors and will be giving those school tours. Our open enrollment for new families has begun, so please get your registrations in this week! A special thank you to all of you who are helping with our “Word of Mouth” campaign! Please continue to spread the word about Seton and all the good things happening here! And don’t forget the ambassador program! It’s a win-win situation. If you know of a place where we can hang a Seton poster, please call Sara in the office.
BLAST TICKET WINNERS
All families who sent in their registration for next school year by Friday, Feb. 1st, were entered into a drawing to receive two tickets to the BLAST! We are thrilled to say that Jim Hilbert and Amy Parkhill (parents of Lindy in 3C) were drawn as the winners! Congratulations Amy and Jim, we can’t wait to see you at the BLAST!
Charlie & the Chocolate factory!!
Charlie & the Chocolate Factory has been announced as our school’s play! Students in grades 3-6 have signed up to participate and began practice on Monday. The performances will be June 6th, 7th , and 8 th. Mr. Eric Johnson will again be the director for this year’s performance.
Our 25th annual BLAST is quickly approaching on Saturday, March 9TH and will again be held at Max of Eastman Place! I hope everyone is able to attend! It is a great time to make new friends and get reacquainted with old friends!
The committee is working hard to make this a night to remember! If you didn’t receive your invitation, please let the office know and we will get one right out to you!
Plans are coming together for the 17th annual Seton Open. It is scheduled for Friday, May 17 at Shadow Lake! Register to play golf or just join us for the dinner. Either way it’s a great time!
VALENTINE’S DAY DRESS DOWN
Tomorrow is Valentine’s Day and every year we have lots of questions about what is acceptable dress.
Here’s the scoop:
Valentine’s Day is a dress-down day. The students wear valentine’s colors. No hair color, no face paint, no hats, no costumes, no duct tape, etc.
The last Friday of the month is “Spirit-Wear day”! Students may wear any Seton spirit-wear: sweatshirt & t-shirts with Seton on it, little Angel shirts, CYO soccer or basketball jerseys… They must wear their school uniform pants or skirts. If it is a gym day, they of course would wear their gym shorts or sweats. This Friday is the last Friday of the month and so it is a “Spirit-Wear” day!
