Mr. Slee's News
Dear Students, Parents, Grandparents, and Staff,
            I would like to take this time and congratulate our 2nd graders who made their First Communion this weekend! What a wonderful step in their faith journey. I also want to thank the parents. You are the first teachers as you have prepared them in their lives. I also want to thank Mrs. Patton, Mrs. Selking, Mrs. Miguel, and Miss Yarde for their help in preparing these young children.
            I also want to congratulate our new inductees to NJHS. They were inducted by Mrs. Brough after the Mass on Tuesday. These young individuals have worked hard and have earned this wonderful honor.
            We have several special trips going on this week with our students. Our 8th graders will be traveling to Chicago on Friday for their class trip. They will go to the Willis Tower, Blue Man Group and Navy Pier to name a few of the fun things they will experience. Our 5th Graders will be going to Camp Potawatomi and 1A will be going to Wild Nights at the Zoo on Thursday.
            As we begin to wind down the year, parents, please talk to your children about working hard until the very end, making good choices, and being kind to others in and outside of school.
            This week is staff appreciation week for Saint Elizabeth Ann Seton Catholic School. Please make sure you take time to say thank you to our staff for all the hard work and dedication they put toward your child's Catholic Education. THANK YOU, TEACHERS AND STAFF!!!
            Finally, we want to wish Miss Widner a speedy recovery as she is recovering from surgery. She is doing well and will be back soon.

Have a Blessed Week,
Mr. Slee
Assistant Principal

Scrip Update
by Jen Rolfsen & Amanda Brzozowski

The School year is quickly coming to a close, and we want to encourage all of you to think of purchasing SCRIP for your end of the year parties and graduation celebrations!  SCRIP has so many vendors to offer, and  WHY would you purchase without giving something back to your families, and your parish?  If you are thinking of having a party catered, please ask us how to use SCRIP to do it with ease!  Do you need a cake or cookies for celebrating your graduate?  What gifts will you need for teachers and staff that have made your student's year bright?
 
Hurry, the year is running out, and there isn't much time left.  We have 3 MORE MONDAY ORDERING DAYS LEFT BEFORE THE END OF THE SCHOOL YEAR!!  You may place a Monday order on Monday May 28 th for Wednesday delivery on May 30.  We will have an OPEN STORE on Thursday, May 31 from 7am until 11 am. 
 
From May 31, 2018 through June 1 st our office will be closed to close out our year and issue rebates.  If you would like make any changes to where your family rebate is issued, you MUST notify our office no later than Friday, May 25 th.  Any changes made after that date will not go into effect until the 2018-2019 school year.  If you have questions, please call our office at 432-4001, ext. 339, or email scrip@seascsfw.org
 
Have a wonderful week!  Keep SCRIPPING!!
 
 
National School Nurse Day

Many thanks to Beth Quigley and Marcia McDowell. They put in countless hours caring for your children.

Birthday Bags
by:  Student Council

It's hard for many of us - adults or children - to imagine celebrating a child's birthday without a party or presents. But for many of the families we serve, finding the extra money to afford a child's birthday celebration is a struggle at best, and frequently impossible.

The Birthday Bag Project is designed to help these families by providing a small "party in a bag" for a child in need... and at the same time gives children with "more" the opportunity to learn empathy in a concrete way by helping another child.
The idea is to fill bags with everything needed for a small birthday party. Each bag goes to a different child. We would like the following donated items so that NJHS and Student Council can assemble the Birthday Bags.

Collection boxes will be in the atrium starting May 10th
May 18th. The following items are needed to make a child's birthday complete:
  • Cake mix
  • Frosting
  • Candles
  • Party plates/napkins
  • Balloons
  • 9x13 foil pan
  • Plastic party table cloth
  • $10 Target or Walmart scrip card (scrip cards should go the office with the Attn: Mrs. Brough or 
  • Mrs. Spoltman)
