School closed for the remainder of the school year. Stay tuned to your emails and messages.

From the Principal...

Dear Seton Families,


We hope you are all well. We have almost completed the 2019-2020 school year! On Monday, June 8 and Tuesday, June 9 the school will be open from 8am to 3pm for the drop-off of classroom materials and technology devices. All textbooks, library books, fourth grade recorders, and checked-out Chromebooks or iPads must be returned at this time.


The map below shows the hallway set-up for drop-off. Please enter through the main doors on Superior Avenue. In that entrance we have located our lost and found items for your review. When you go up the stairs, there will be a table for Chromebooks and iPads. Be sure that you are returning all cases, chargers, and devices. You will be charged for any missing items.


As you go down the hallway, there will be three tables set up for the drop-off of classroom textbooks or other classroom materials. At the end of the hallway, there will be a box for Seton School Library Books. Before you leave, please check for any of your child’s personal items. Thank you and have an amazing and healthy summer. If you have any questions, please contact me at nardis@sheboyganseton.org or 920-234-8756.


We continue to pray for the health and safety of all of our Seton families. St. Elizabeth Ann Seton, pray for us.


Sincerely,

Dr. Stephanie Nardi, Principal

Congratulations to all of our Seton graduates.

Class of 2020- Kathryne Hager

My favorite part of Seton was participating in the school plays. A great memory I have was when we went iceskating. I will be attending Roncalli this fall.

Class of 2020- Marco Marchiando

I made wonderful memories in band, the musicals, basketball, and as an altar server. It was an honor to be on back-to-back basketball teams invited to The Padre Serra Tournament. I will be attending Sheboygan North High School.

Welcome Kate Dolack! Our New Math and K-8 Enrichment Teacher for 20-21

Welcome Laurin Davis! Our New First Grade Teacher for 20-21

Hi! My name is Laurin Davis, I have a Bachelor’s of Science in Elementary through Middle School Education from the University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh. I have always had an interest in working with children. I started working with children at a young age, teaching gym and swim classes at the YMCA.


I have worked with children in early childhood centers throughout my first college experience at Lakeland University. After graduating from Lakeland University with a bachelor’s degree in Nonprofit Management and Criminal Justice; I realized my passion was in education. With the help and support of my family and friends, I embarked on the journey to get my teaching license at UW-Oshkosh.


While studying Early Elementary Education, I was a special education aide. During my course work at UW-Oshkosh, I completed practicums in Kindergarten, Third Grade, and completed my student teaching experience in Second Grade. Recently, I have completed long-term substitute assignments in First Grade and Guidance.


I was born and raised in Sheboygan. In my free time, I like spending time with my two dogs, Jackson and Leo as well as my family.
