The mission of Mother Seton School states that as a community of knowledge, our goal is to inspire students to strive for academic excellence. As an educational institution, we offer a variety of resources for children begin the journey of learning that will prepare them for high school and beyond. All learners begin with what they know and build on this foundation working with our dedicated and well prepared teachers who give our children tools needed to succeed. With these thoughts in mind note the following:
- As an accredited school, we offer the core classes of Religion, Math, Science, Technology, Social Studies, Language Arts (reading/literature, English grammar, application and writing; vocabulary/spelling), and Physical Education. Our teachers are committed to assisting each child in meeting grade level benchmarks.
- We are very fortunate to offer our students quality special programs in the areas of technology, music, band, art, Spanish and library. Technology is integrated in all curriculum areas. Most recently, Chromebooks were added to our technology classes. Through the Penny Power fundraiser, we were able to purchase a classroom Chromebook “lab” and cart that can be moved to any classroom and used in a variety of subject areas.
Added to these are student activities and clubs that include: Art Angels, Chorus, Liturgy Chorus, Tech Crew, Instrumental Music and Band, Healthy Eating Club, Engineering Club, Science Club, STEM Club, Vincentian Marian Youth (VMY), Spanish Club, Student Council, Yearbook, Seton Scribblers Club, and a Book Club. We also have an after-school program that offers our students time to do homework and work collaboratively playing in a variety of educational games!
- For students in need of academic support and/or enrichment, we are blessed to have the Mother Seton Learning Center. This program provides academic/social and consultative support, including speech and language services, support for English Language Learners, service and school-based learning plans, and enrichment opportunities to challenge our more advanced students. At this time over 70 of our students currently visit the Learning Center for support and enrichment.
- A variety of educational contests are offered during the year that include Geography and Spelling Bees; contests that vary from writing assignments, art, music, and physical education.
In addition to the student learning community, our teachers are committed to being members of a professional learning community. Teachers and classroom assistants meet on a regular basis to learn about and discuss educational trends which can enhance what is happening in the classroom.
Mother Seton School is a community committed to growing in faith and knowledge. By partnering with the parents and grandparents we can work together to make sure our children succeed through these elementary and middle school years. As mentioned last week, we can not only put our faith into practice, but together we can do our best to instill in our children the skills they need that will carry them onto higher learning in high school, college and beyond!
