  • Digital Citizenship Week October 16-22

    Thank you for taking the time over the past few weeks to discuss, review, and sign the Great Seneca Creek Acceptable Use of Technology Agreement. As we have seen in the media lately, teaching our children how to use technology and the internet responsibly is an important lesson that requires continuous dialogue.  We know that teaching and modeling digital citizenship doesn't end in the classroom. Home environments also shape kids' relationships with technology. While we promote technology use for learning, fun, and bringing people together, it's also important to balance media and tech use with undistracted face-to-face time.  Please join us in sending the message to our children about the importance of device free time by taking the #DeviceFreeDinnerChallenge with your family this week.   

  • Kids Helping Kids Food Drive

    This food drive begins on Monday, October 3rd and ends on Friday, October 28th.  Our school goal is to collect 821 pounds of food.  Last year we collected 747 pounds.  Food items most needed include: cereal, canned vegetables, peanut butter, macaroni and cheese, tuna fish, and rice.  Each classroom will have their own box for food collection.  Please send your child into school with the food items.  They will take these items to their classroom and place them in the box. If you have any questions or would like to make a cash donation, please contact Ms. Wert at
