At Sts. Leo-Seton Catholic School, our motto is “We Are Family.” When students complete their 8th grade year, we usually have a ceremony to celebrate their accomplishments while at our school. Unfortunately this year due to COVID-19, we were unable to do so in person. Therefore, we hosted a virtual ceremony to acknowledge students for their academic achievements.

To further celebrate these students, we asked some of them to share their experiences, memories, and more from their time here at Sts. Leo-Seton Catholic School. If you would like to view the first 8th Graders’ Experience blog, click here.
