A Special Thank you

St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Catholic School would like to thank Catholic Women's Charities for the generous gift of $1,300. We were visited during our Back to School Night by two representatives who spoke to our families and made a presentation of the gift.

For the Safety of All...

During our teacher in-service, Seton School staff had ALICE Crisis Response Training, Prior to training, the officers walked through the building with Dr. Nardi to assess any security concerns. We ask that you please help us to keep our building secure by doing the following.


Never Hold the Locked Entrance Doors Open for Anyone

As you enter or exit our building, please do not hold the doors open for another person to enter. It is important that every person, even a parent you know, is buzzed into the building by the office. It is our way of monitoring who is in our building.


Always Check In at the Office

When you enter the building during the school day, please stop in at the office to sign in and get a visitor badge if needed.


Let Dr. Nardi Know if You Have a Building Key

We know that there are a number of school community members who have building keys for various reasons. Please send a brief email to Dr. Nardi at nardis@sheboyganseton.org with your name, the code imprinted on your key, and the reason you have one. It is extremely important that we have an inventory of key holders for security reasons.


Follow the Parking, Drop-Off and Pick-Up Instructions

Children are often unpredictable and we want to make sure that all of our students are safe. There are cones set up in the back lot to restrict car traffic. Please obey those restrictions as they are designed to keep everyone safe.


Thank you for working with the staff of Seton School to keep your children safe.

Recess Supervisor Needed

We are in urgent need of one more recess supervisor for lunch recesses. The hours are 11:15-12:45 Monday through Friday and the position pays $12.25/hour. If you are interested, please contact Monique or Dr. Nardi.

An Exciting Opportunity!

On Tuesday, September 26 Seton School will have a camera person in school to begin the creation of a promotional video for us. Please be assured that this process will not interrupt the educational climate of the school. The purpose is to share what is special about Seton.


We would like to include family statements about why you chose Seton or what you like about Seton School. I understand that being on camera is not always comfortable, but please consider helping us to promote our school and to share what is special about Seton. Thank you.

Mystic Monk Coffee and Tea Sale to Support Seton School

The Monks of the Most Blessed Virgin Mary of Mount Carmel were founded by Bishop David L. Ricken of the Diocese of Green Bay. They were founded as a Public Association of the Christian Faithful in the Diocese of Cheyenne on October 15, 2003. Bishop Ricken established the monastery to live the fullness of the Carmelite tradition and way of life as is proper to monks.

In a mountain valley in Wyoming, the Carmelite Monks were looking for a way to support their growing community. After much discernment and prayer, the monks had the inspiration to start roasting coffee and selling the beans online. The first samples were roasted on a cast-iron skillet in the monastery kitchen and in 2007, Mystic Monk Coffee was born.

Since this humble beginning, more and more gourmet coffee drinkers have been enjoying the smooth, delicious taste of Mystic Monk Coffee. Most customers become regulars after the first delightful sip of Mystic Monk Coffee, and today around 85% of orders are from repeat customers. This is no surprise, as the Monks strive for perfection in everything they do and each coffee bean is roasted with love and prayer.

Order forms are in your Friday Folder and are also available in the school office. Orders will be collected monthly throughout the school year.
