Mission Statement
"Guided by our Catholic faith, St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Catholic School serves God and families 
by spiritually and academically preparing students for lives of holiness and service"

The Run for Fun was wonderful and a great success!  Thank you to Betsy McClanahan and her group of volunteers who spent time soliciting sponsorships, securing in-kind donations and planning a super fun day for our students. A huge shout out to Craig Buffington for providing the music for the event.  He will be talking about the St. Elizabeth's Run for Fun on the Twister (101.9 FM) this afternoon and again around 9:30am Saturday on KJ103 (102.7FM).

Thanks also to Mrs. Weathers and her group of volunteers for a great book fair, and Heidi McReynolds, Toni Seymour and the PTO for a fun Family Game Night. 

Please keep our second grade students in your prayers as they receive their First Holy Communion this Sunday.

Good luck to our band students competing at the Tri-State Music Competition next week. 

Safety Concern
I would again respectfully ask that parents and drivers refrain from using cell phones when in our carpool lines.  There have been some close calls due to inattentive drivers in line or pulling in and backing out.  Please help us keep our students safe by giving your full attention to safe arrival and safe dismissal.   

Parish Survey
Let your voice be heard! The Parish Council of St. John the Baptist Catholic Church would like your input. Please visit stjohn-catholic.org to complete the parish survey before May 5, 2017.

2017/2018 Enrollment
A reminder that enrollment for the 17/18 school year continues.  For our middle school families, students must be fully enrolled for next year before they are eligible to be considered for House Captain or NJHS Officer.  Captain selection and NJHS elections will be held the second week of May.  

Scholarships Available
Today is the deadline to apply for financial assistance.    Any family in need of help with tuition for the 2017/2018 is encouraged to apply.  Please complete our enrollment application using ParentsWeb to access the link for tuition assistance.  

Golf Tournament
Plans are underway for the annual PTO Golf Tournament. The tournament is scheduled for Friday, May 5  at Kickingbird Golf Course. Sign ups and sponsorship information was sent home a few weeks ago with students. Get some friends and sign up your team to join the fun.  Our annual golf tournament is one of our most important fundraisers with proceeds going to enhance school security, including our School Resource Officer position. Your support is appreciated.

Run for Fun
Thank you to all students and families who collected pledges or donations for the Run for Fun.  If you need to collect a per-lap pledge and your child cannot remember his/her total laps, please contact the office for the total.  All donations and pledges are due in the school office by Friday, May 5.
