Uniform Update and More
Students may choose to wear either the regular school uniform or the PE uniform every day. The PE uniform will continue to be required on PE days. The school shoe must be a white tennis shoe, with white or light non-marking soles. The shoe itself may have colored markings, such as logos. Our uniform closet has an ample supply of uniforms. Please contact the school office at (301) 447-3161, Monday – Thursday, to set up a time to visit the closet. If you need additional PE T-shirts, they must be ordered through the front office no later than August 3. A form was mailed home with report cards or you may download it from the website.
A Note from the Principal’s Desk…
I am writing to inform you of a staffing change that took place on Friday, December 20, 2019.
Prior to me being hired as Mother Seton School Principal, the Daughters of Charity asked Sister Mary Catherine to assist the new principal in adapting to the Daughters of Charity charism, and the Mother Seton School culture and mission. As the Director of Mission Integration, Sister Mary Catherine has done this graciously for the last six months.
The Daughters of Charity have now asked that Sister Mary Catherine transition from working in the School to having more of a presence in the Emmitsburg community. Sister Mary Catherine is happy to be in Emmitsburg and will serve the community in a variety of ways.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank Sister Mary Catherine for the guidance she has given me over the last six months, and I look forward to the positive impact she will have ministering to the people of Emmitsburg.
