What a difference! Over the summer the asbestos in our school floor tile was fully abated; new floor coverings were put in place, and a fresh coat of paint applied inside and outside the school gave Seton School a much needed makeover! Our school now sparkles – it’s bright, fresh and welcoming! What a great way to welcome our students and families back for the 2017-18 academic year. But that’s not all.
Blended learning training for all Seton School teachers began over the summer at Santa Clara University. Classes were taken to prepare for the introduction of the Drexel Program this academic year. (An extensive training over a period of three years is required of each Drexel teacher). With the use of technology and data-driven instruction there will be more individual, paced instruction set in place at all grade levels to allow teachers to give each student an opportunity to meet their learning needs.
“We’re excited to be a Drexel School and to challenge and enrich the education and classroom experience for each student. It is important to also note that our mission at Saint Elizabeth Seton School remains unchanged. We are called to serve and support low-income families in our community, and this we continue to do with the generous financial and spiritual support from the Daughters of Charity and sponsors in our community,” said Principal Evelyn Rosa.
With technology in place, a full roster of students (PreK-Eighth Grade), some new faculty members and a completed facility makeover, we’re ready! We are looking forward to a terrific school year. With the transition to the Drexel Program and a committed faculty we believe that our students will continue to develop the necessary skills for high school and beyond.
