~Parent/Teacher Conference "Do you ever wish you had more time to volunteer at school, but can’t find a spare minute in your hectic schedule?  Here is the perfect opportunity for you!  Parents are coordinating food and beverage donations for the upcoming parent teacher conferences and we need your help!  As you already know, the kids have half days on October 25th and October 27th, but the teachers will be there well into the evening hours conducting conferences.  For their dedication and hard work, we are providing the faculty with a warm meal on Tuesday, November 4th, as well as grab bags that we will assemble in advance if the teachers don't even have a spare moment to eat.  Think of it as an evening “Eagles Wings” for our faculty and support staff!   All of this information can be found on iVolunteer under “Donations for Conferences”.   Thank you for your generosity and support of our amazing faculty at St. James Seton." 

Thank you so much all of you for your help!
