Miss Widner's News

Dear Parents, Students, Grandparents, and Staff,
     What a beautiful day it was spending time with the 4th grade as we walked around downtown Fort Wayne! We "fell in love" with Fort Wayne all over again. We ate lunch at Coney Island (one of my favorite restaurants!) and saw so much history of our city. Thanks so Mrs. Darling and Mrs. Kleber for a wonderful day! Also, our 8th grade had a great day giving back to the community by working at Community Harvest Food Bank today. What a wonderful way to "pay it forward!"
     If you have a pet that you want blessed, be sure to bring them on Thursday, October 4th at 2:15 to the school. This is the Feast of St. Francis, and Deacon Jim will be blessing all the animals! Bring your beloved pets to the front of school for a blessing! After the blessing, you can take your children home! 
     As a reminder, please come to the church on Friday at 2:15 for the Living Rosary sponsored by Student Council. Everyone is welcome to pray this beautiful prayer. 
     Good luck to our 5th grade girls' volleyball team who play in the CYO tournament tonight at 5:30 PM at Queen of Angels. They are playing against St. Charles. When they win, they will play in the championship on Sunday, October 7 at 1:00 at Queen of Angels. Good luck, Lady Pioneers!!
Have a great week,
Miss Widner

It's that time of year again... the Saint Elizabeth Ann Seton School's Scholastic Book Fair!  Not only is it a great way to help promote the love of reading, but it also is a great way to support our teachers and school library. We'll have contests and prizes for the kids all week! A preview flyer is coming home in hardcopy today, with an 
optional wish list attached.  
Special Event!
Books & Buddies will be held Wednesday, October 10th from 6-8.  Students are encouraged to bring their favorite stuffed toy and can wear PJs to this event.  Guest readers will be sharing favorite stories, and the book fair will be open during this time. Attendees can also enter to win a special prize! Hopefully students take home a new book from the fair to become a new favorite! 
We need help and volunteers to help make this year's Book Fair a success!  Please follow the link and help when you can. 
If you are unable to attend the fair in person, we invite you to visit our online book fair. The online fair will be available October 3-16. All books purchased through the online fair are delivered free to our school and sent home with your child!
