Notes from the Principal - Nov 15th

November is quickly getting away from us! Today your children will be bringing home their first report cards of the year. They have worked hard and their efforts show in their grades. Please celebrate the job they are doing with them. Tomorrow the children have the day off. Teachers will be here to meet with you for Parent/Teacher conferences. If you have not yet made your appointment, please contact your child’s teacher to set up a time to meet. This conference is mandatory.

Lunch Update

The lunch online ordering system is open for business for the month of December! When you go in to place your order, you will notice that we have listened to your concerns and have changed vendors. Beginning December 1, we will use Pontillo’s and Bagel Land for our lunch orders. Sides (applesauce, fruit cups, goldfish, pretzels and popcorn) will also be provided. Please note that there is a choice of options on Wednesdays. The ordering system will be open until Thursday November 22nd at 12:00. No orders will be take after that time. All payments are made through FACTS.

School Start Time

Please remember, our school day begins at 8:00. The children are allowed into their classrooms at 7:50. If you drop off your child after 8:00 they are considered tardy. Please make every attempt to get your child to school on time!

Students of the month

At our Grandparents/Special Friends Prayer Service we honored two students for being exceptional role models for all of us. Marin and Fionnula Ahern were both nominated by their teachers. It was so nice to be able to honor both sisters! Neither teacher knew that the other was making the nomination! Our next Students of the Month will be awarded at our Advent Prayer Service.

December Open House

Our last Open Houses were so successful we thought we’d do it again! On Tuesday, Dec. 11th, from 9:00-1:00, we will welcome prospective families into our building to check us out! Please help us spread the word and let your neighbors know how much you love our school. There are Seton yard signs to purchase for display on your front lawn. Also consider sharing the Open House as an event on Facebook and tell everyone you know that you belong to the Seton family
