Get Schooled Tour
We are pleased to announce that on
Saint Elizabeth Ann Seton Catholic School will again be hosting the Get Schooled Tour at our school. This program has been made possible by a grant through the Lutheran Foundation, as an initiative committed to improving the physical, mental and spiritual well-being of our community.
We are also happy to announce that Precious Blood, St. Rose, St. Bernard, St. Aloysius, and St. Joseph Hessen Cassel Middle School students will join us for this presentation.
The Get Schooled Tour is a live band and light show aimed at addressing issues such as bullying, depression and suicidal thoughts. The program uses interactive polling (students will be permitted to use their mobile devices for this and will be on a secure hotspot which will not allow access to any other internet sites) and results are shown on screens in real time to show students that they are not alone in their struggles. Please visit the website:
for additional information and a video clip of the performance.
After the performance, staff from the school and church will be available to speak with students for the remainder of the afternoon if they chose to do so. Students will also be given information on how to reach out to the trained professionals at Remedy Live if they or someone they know should need assistance 24 hours a day - 7 days a week.
The presentation will be Wednesday, February 6 at 8:30 AM in our gym. Parents are welcome to attend!!
