The wellness form to be completed daily comes from the Archdiocese of Baltimore. The AOB threshold is 100.4, HOWEVER, Mother Seton School's threshold is 100. If your student has a temp of 100 or higher, please answer YES to that question and do not send them to school. Thank you!

Fairfield Area Students - Free Lunch

Fairfield Area School District has received a federal grant to provide lunches for all students who reside within Fairfield School District. This is regardless of what school the students attend and economic status. From Monday through Thursday, 11:30-1:00pm, parents may come to the Middle School entrance where cafeteria staff will be. The middle school entrance is on the other side of the building opposite of Fairfield Road. No need to sign anything or provide a name, just the number of lunches needed!

Cafeteria Update

Beginning October 1, students may now purchase a full lunch, entrée only, or entrée with drink. Please see the Cafeteria page for pricing.

Band Registration Opens This Week

Ms. Gries, the band instructor, will visit each grade 4-8 classroom, show an introductory video, and provide information on how to join the band. If your child is interested but finances are a hardship, please contact me.

Performance Series Assessments continue this week

The PSA replaces the IOWA basic standardized test. This fall, the test begins on Wed, Sep 23. Please visit the testing page for a list of which grades test on which date. As it's computer-based, you may opt to have the child complete the test from home. Please let your teacher know if this is your choice so they may give you the appropriate login information. *No new instruction will be given on test days. Students opting to remain home to test are only expected to complete the test. It is a series of 3 untimed tests (2 for Gr 1) which should take approximately 1 hour to complete. Breaks will be given in between testing.*

Please complete the AOB Income Survey!

The AOB will be using a google form survey to collect family income data for the 20-21 school year.
EACH FAMILY MUST COMPLETE THE SURVEY regardless of whether you believe you qualify for free or reduced fee lunch or not. Collecting family income data is also a requirement of MSDE and we must do so annually.
Visit bit.ly/IncSurvey2021 to take the survey. The survey takes approximate 2-4 minutes and must be completed by October 15, 2020.

TAKE THE SURVEY

IOWA Assessments Begin April 3rd

Please help your children do well on the standardized assessment and do their best to attend school each day during the test period. While standardized test scores are not the sole measure of a student’s progress, they are helpful in gauging their readiness compared to all students in their grade-level nationwide. Please refer to the enclosed flier for tips and strategies to help your student!

Healthy snacks are always welcome during testing for all grades. Check with your child's homeroom teacher or homeroom parent to see if you can help!
