Wednesday October 3rd

How time has flown by!

This past month has just flown by! Every day I wonder at the amazing children who come through our doors. I have had many opportunities to spend time with everyone at lunch. It is such a pleasant experience to sit with different groups and get to know them. I thoroughly enjoy your beautiful children! They are bright, fun, engaging, curious and respectful. I am always proud of the way they represent Seton Catholic School. You are raising wonderful young ladies and gentlemen!

Seton Marathon

If the weatherman is correct, it will be a glorious morning for our Marathon event on Thursday, October 4th! What ever the weather, please dress your children accordingly. If it is lightly raining, we will still walk! Send in rain coats, boots and umbrellas if need be.

Christina Wesley Thrall, Sheila Campolieto and Karen Benacci have done a spectacular job getting everything ready! Thank you ladies. Many parents have volunteered to make this event the success but we still need more corner volunteers. Consider coming to lend a hand.

Our prayer service, put on by our 6th grade, begins in the gym at 8:30. Please know that all are welcome to join us to pray for, and to help us cheer the children on as they walk the Marathon route!

PK Marathon was a big hit this year! They were held yesterday and today during their morning hours! Though it was rainy, they had fun weaving in and out of the upper grade classrooms! Bravo Preschoolers for doing a great job showing school spirit!

After School Activities

Many after school activities have begun. Running Club, Soccer, Chess Club, Fencing, MTKC (Glee Club) and Scouting are all proving to be great successes. Thank you to Dan Sadowski for stepping up to coordinate our CYO Soccer program. Without him, we would not have soccer this year! Spanish Enrichment for K-6 begins on the 23rd of October! Thank you in advance to all our volunteers who make these activities run smoothly

Long Weekend Ahead

Just a reminder: Tomorrow, October 5th is Superintendent’s Day for teachers and staff with no school for students. Also, there is no school on Monday October 8th, for Columbus Day. Enjoy a long weekend with your family.
