The Second Graders at St. Elizabeth Seton School are becoming proficient readers and very excited about their achievement. Our parish hopes to support and encourage their reading skills by giving them new books of their own for summer enjoyment. Many students do not have other learning opportunities during their long summer break. You might remember your own cherished "first books" as a child and want to give that gift to a Seton Second Grade student.
