Mother Seton School's Home and School Association presents our first Mental Health Awareness Speaker Series in conjunction with our next HSA meeting.

Mental Health Awareness Speaker Series:

Guest Speaker: Sister Maggie Scally, D.C.

Topic: Discussing The Second Step Program and its benefits.

As we come out of the past few years, an important topic has come to the forefront, mental health.

First up is Mother Seton School's very own, Sister Maggie Scally, D.C., and The Second Step Program. Sister Maggie will discuss what the program offers our children and the steps we can take at home to help encourage engagement with our children.

The HSA general meeting will start at 6:30 p.m., with Sister Maggie starting her presentation at 7:00 p.m.

Like all HSA meetings, this event is open to the Mother Seton School community. While we encourage you to attend the HSA meeting to hear about upcoming events and volunteer opportunities, we understand everyone has busy schedules. Sister Maggie's talk will be approximately 30 minutes long.

A Message From the Principal

Dear Families,

I hope this note finds you and your family healthy and well.

Our school community enjoyed a beautiful opening school Mass this morning. Thank you to the parents and family members who joined us this morning, and a special thank you to Monsignor Michael Mellone for celebrating Mass. Let us all continue to pray for one another and for the wisdom, courage, and strength to do our best this school year.

We are excited to welcome our grandparents and special guests to campus on Friday! Grandparents and Grand Friends Day is a wonderful opportunity for our students to welcome grandparents, or other loved ones, to our School community. Please remember to RSVP today if you have not already.

Have a Blessed Week!

Sincerely,

Kathleen J. Kilty, PhD
Principal

Join the School Band!

Students in grades 4-8 are invited to participate in the school band, led by Mr Trey Pope.

The purpose of the program is to broaden the education of the child by giving him/her an understanding of music. Participation in the band gives the student a feeling of accomplishment which is becoming such a rare but valuable part of life. The mental and physical disciplines involved in learning to read and play music are of immeasurable value to the overall development of the child. Our purpose is to bring the experience of music to every child.

FORMAT
Classes are organized to offer instruction on band instruments to all interested students enrolled in the 4th through 8th grade. These classes are taught by highly qualified teachers. Classes meet once a week from October through May, except on school holidays (minimum of 28 lessons). The health and safety of our students and staff is paramount; all guidelines of the archdiocese
and each school will be followed. Students will be scheduled by instrument or level of achievement. First year students do not become members of the school band until they reach a prescribed level of achievement. Second year students, with few exceptions, are full-fledged members of the school band. Instruction is offered on flute, clarinet, saxophone, trumpet, trombone, baritone horn, bass guitar and snare drum.

Please view the welcome letter and instrumental rental flier for more information.

Be a Part of the HSA and Make a Difference for MSS!

The MSS Home and School Association depends on parents to encourage volunteering their time, talents, ideas, experience, and energy. Many parents are uncertain how to get involved due to working full-time, little ones at home, etc. Most of the opportunities have flexibility—please contact us with any questions—and we welcome suggestions on future events and programs.

Please complete the Volunteer Form.

*Join us for our next meeting, October 11th at 6:30pm in the media center*
