PBIS Leadership Team Established
Our six person PBIS leadership team includes Claire Steckbauer (middle school teacher), Mary Gruber (elementary teacher), Jeff Cole (specials teacher), Angela Nienhuis (early childhood teacher), Dr. Nardi (principal), and Anne Kaufmann (parent volunteer). The team will attend four training sessions and will then help to facilitate the creation of our Seton School PBIS program with the whole staff. During our implementation in 2018-2019, the team will meet monthly to evaluate our behavior data and look for areas of celebration and areas in need of improvement.
If you would like to know more about PBIS, you can view a webinar from the Wisconsin PBIS Network at https://www.wisconsinpbisnetwork.org/assets/files/flash/ThisisPBIS/story_html5.html.

Part Time Custodial Maintenance Help Needed?
St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Catholic School is looking to hire a part time custodial maintenance position. It would be no more than 20 hrs a week M-F working in the evenings. Hours during the week would increase during the summer months based on cleaning schedules. Off Holidays and some days when school is not in session unless absolutely needed.
We are looking to hire a responsible, self-directed individual interested in the custodial maintenance field. Experience preferred but not required. If interested, please contact Facilities Manager, Ryan O’Keefe by email (firstname.lastname@example.org,) or by phone (920-980-9100).
Basketball Open Gym
There will be an open gym for all kids in 5-8 grade (girls and boys) who plan on playing for Seton this winter. They will be held on Wednesdays in October from 5-6pm. That would include Oct. 18 and 25. There would not be coaching but merely "crowd control" and some coordination. Thank you.
7/8 Boys Coach
Thank you to Sheboygan North Volleyball for the invite!

Now Taking Coffee and Tea Orders for October
Some of you may be more familiar with our food box delivery than others. Each year we fill and deliver over 200 boxes of food to those in need the weekend before Thanksgiving. We are able to do this due to the generosity of our parish members at St. Clement and Holy Name.
One of my jobs is to collect and store the boxes themselves so that we have something in which to put the food on that day. We have been blessed in having multiple sources over the years that have provided us with boxes all of the same size - boxes built to hold about 8 reams of paper and that come with a lid. The box is approximately 12 x 17" and a perfect size to hold the food we have for each family.
This year it has been a little more difficult to collect the 250 that we need - I currently have only about 125. So I am putting a call out to all of you to help. If you work somewhere that has a copy room or print shop or if you know someone who does, please ask if you can have the boxes when empty. I know that they are in high demand since they are perfect for moving and storing. But even if you only find 1 or 2 boxes, that will help.
As I mentioned, I will store them at my house until November when we need them. You can drop them off at Seton school, at the parish office, in the narthex at Holy Name or Dominican Hall at St. Clement. Or you can call me and I will pick them up. Just be sure to mark them for the food box mission if they don't come directly to me. My contact information is below if you have any questions or need more information.
Thank you for your help in this endeavor!
