Miss Widner's News
Dear Parents, Students, Grandparents, and Staff,
    Well, this is it- the last few days of school and the last newsletter! I hope everyone had an enjoyable Memorial Day weekend and did not have too many storms hit their area. It is a very busy week with field trips, Preschool Palooza, and ending with 8th grade Graduation Mass on Friday, May 31 at 9:00 AM! Please keep our 8th graders in your prayers as they begin their next journey in their lives. We know they are so excited to start high school, but we will miss them so much- once a Pioneer, always a Pioneer! Each year, the 8th grade writes a final newsletter to all of us. You can find that in this week's Wednesday's Newsletter as a link. 
     As we wrap up this year, we want to say good-bye and best wishes to Mrs. Senesac, our middle school religion teacher. She also starts a new journey with her life. She will be the Director of Religious Formation at St. Paul of the Cross. We are currently interviewing for her position. 
     Many thanks to all the parents, grandparents, and students who make our school so special. Your support is appreciated, and our students ROCK at academics, athletics, and being Christ to one another! Thanks to Fr. Dave, Fr. Thomas, Fr. Louis, and 
Deacon Jim. We appreciate your spiritual leadership! Finally, many thanks to our dedicated, awesome staff and teachers. You are what makes Saint Elizabeth Ann Seton Catholic School a place to call home. Blessings to all!

Have a wonderful Summer!
Miss Widner
Principal

School Safety Update
by:  Mr. Slee

I would like to say thank you to so many people who have graciously donated to SNL and the Fund A Need for Safety items. Because of your wonderful generosity, we raised $46,025 for school safety. We are in the process of ordering and scheduling installation of the following items:
  1. Lockers have been ordered and are scheduled to be delivered in June. These will be installed by our maintenance crew in July and will be ready by the beginning of the 2019-2020 school year. Once installed, we will have lockers for all of our students in grades PK-8.
  1. Protective Window Film has been ordered and will be installed over the summer. This project is scheduled (official date and time is in discussion) to be completed over the summer.
With the remaining funds, we are currently getting quotes and looking to install new or replace old and outdated cameras in the future. Again, thank you to all of those who helped make these improvements in our school possible. It is a joy and blessing to work and be part of such a supportive group of people.
 
Blessings, 
Mr. Slee
 
Schoolkidz
 
Dear Parents,
 
Attached to the links below you will find the online ordering information for Schoolkidz for PK-8 for the 2019-2020 school year!
 
For our families who have never ordered from Schoolkidz, this company puts together our supply list for each grade and places everything in a box - one stop shopping and very convenient!  
 
For middle school, they have their own grade (6-7-8) as well as an information sheet about calculators.  
 
You can only order online and the due date is May 31st!

Greetings School Parents!
 
     On the link below you will find information on an organizational product for the 2019-2020 school year called LockerWorks for grades K-8. This is a flexible organizer that hangs inside our lockers, leaves room for coats, backpacks, etc...
 
     Feel free to stop by and check it out what a LockerWorks looks like in one of our lockers! Please stop by the school office, sign in, and we will take you to the locker. The cost for the wonderful organizational tool is $20.00. This will cover the cost for the school to purchase, to ship, and handle.
 
     If you are interested in purchasing this organizational tool, feel free to complete the form, send in a check payable to SEASCS by May 30th. If you have any questions, feel free to call the school office.
