St. Elizabeth Ann Seton - Wichita, KS

Feb. 19 - 23 Newsletter

I would like to take this opportunity to thank all the parents who sent items or helped with our Valentine Party.  The treats were delicious and the students enjoyed making the Valentine craft.  Don't forget we are collecting pull-tabs from aluminum cans.  We have collected 6 gallon bags to date. The proceeds help benefit the Ronald McDonald Houses.  I will be helping with the DIAL testing on Thursday and Friday.  If you need to contact me please call the office and leave a message.  We will begin the Family Life Series by RCL Benziger this week.  These are the concepts taught at the kindergarten level: 
              God created all kinds of families
              Family members help one another
              God gave each person a loving heart
              God created each person with all kinds of feelings
              God wants each person to grow and learn
              God created all living things
              A baby is a gift from God to the family
              God gave us friends
              Jesus teaches us how to help others
