PTO - Looking Forward

Our new committee chairpersons are busy planning for the school year.  Many volunteers have signed up to join the committees and help - and we can always use more!  Below is an overview with information on what is being planned and how to get involved.

Catholic Schools Week:

  • Opening Day Celebration Mass
  • Open House
  • Parent Appreciation Day
  • Staff Appreciation Day
  • Faith Appreciation Day
  • Community Appreciation Day
  • Student Appreciation Day
  • Basket Raffle
  • Family Bingo Night

Field Day  
Field Day is a fun day for the classes to participate in outdoor games. Lunch is provided by PTO and classes make individual plans for the afternoon.

Seton Catholic School Directory
A school directory is compiled at the beginning of each school year, and one copy is provided for each family.  A Directory Form must be filled out each year to provide permission to print your information in our directory. Please read Seton Notes to access the form online to complete and submit.

Room Parent Committee
Each classroom needs parent helpers for parties, activities, and NTR and PTO fundraisers throughout the year. Room Parents are selected at the beginning of the school year. 

Recycled Uniform Sale
Any time during the school year, gently used and practically new uniform components may be sent to school and dropped off with Mr. Jim Allen. Recycled Uniform Sales will take place at the beginning of the year in August, mid-year and end of year. Volunteers are always needed to help during the sale.
 
School Supply Sale
PTO volunteers will do the shopping for you and have your required school supplies ready for pick-up in August before the new academic year begins.  Orders will be taken for this service before the end of the current school year.  

"What is it that makes Seton so great? Is it the way our Principal knows each student by name? The mission statement and prayer read each morning? The birthday greeting in the announcements? The sense of holiness that resonates throughout the school because the Chapel is a step away from the classroom? The genuine student engagement in school Masses? I say it is all of these things and much more!"
