Parents

Parents play an important part in the life of the school. They are expected to support their children’s education as well as provide service hours to the school community. We value their ongoing participation and assistance.

Parent Portals

Parent Square

ParentSquare is a safe and secure platform for all school-to-home communication. The two-way group messaging, private conversations, district-wide alerts and notices, and simple user interface keeps everyone connected, creating a vibrant school community.

Power School

PowerSchool is a best-in-class, robust platform designed to streamline school operations, provide valuable insights into operations and classroom performance, empower teachers, and drive student growth.

Parent Advisory Committee

The Parent Advisory Committee (P.A.C.) is a group of parents who collaborate with the Principal and school administration to enrich the St. Elizabeth Seton School community. Our goals are to:

  • facilitate communication between the parents and the principal
  • support the parents in their role as the primary educators of their children
  • build a strong school community
  • coordinate parent fund raising activities
  • organize school activities such as cultural celebrations, campus clean up days, the Spring Festival, and other school events
  • arrange transportation and support for athletic teams
  • to welcome and guide new parents

The Parent Advisory Committee meets once a month at 6:30 p.m. in the school’s Conference Room.   At this planning meeting the principal provides updates on school progress, and the committee plans and organizes annual school activities.  Interested parents may attend our planning meetings to share new ideas that will support the Seton School Community.

Safe Environment / Financial Mismanagement

Ethics Point

Those responsible for the spiritual and material goods of the Church are entrusted with the stewardship of others’ gifts, and are ultimately responsible to the Lord. As a faithful steward, the Roman Catholic Diocese of San Jose is committed to maintaining the highest standards of conduct and ethics. The mission of the Church requires no less.

To this end, the Diocese of San Jose has partnered with EthicsPoint to provide a confidential method to hear suggestions, concerns or reports of financial misconduct. The EthicsPoint Hotline (1-888-325-7863) allows parishioners, volunteers, employees, vendors and others to make confidential reports regarding the mismanagement of parish or school property, cash and all other assets. Reportable are also issues of apparent disregard of policies pertaining to the proper management of these assets. Suspected unethical behavior by employees, volunteers, staff, trustees, officers, directors, agents or contractors of the Diocese should also be made to EthicsPoint. All reports may be made anonymously.

It is the hope of the Diocese that EthicsPoint will assist in the protection of all who interact with the parishes, schools, chancery and other diocesan agencies.

EthicsPoint accepts reports of financial misconduct through its website or its Hotline: 1-888-325-7863. A complete report will be made to diocesan leadership, so that leadership may review and provide feedback and resolution for the issues that are reported.

Please direct any questions that you may have about EthicsPoint or reporting concerns to Teresa Conville, Diocesan Compliance and Parish Financial Services Director at 408-983-0241 or tconville@dsj.org.
