Who Are We?

Our Commitment

Nurturing living a life of faith

The responsibility of SLS is to complement the role of the parents while creating a holy environment for students to continue to grow in the image and likeness of God. Working as a partner with parents, we invite and encourage parents to participate in all religious events and share in the desire that our students progressively grow to become involved, active members of the Church and society.

Principal’s Message

Jesus says in the Gospel, “Let the little children come unto me.”

 I am so excited and looking forward to being part of the Sts. Leo-Seton family. I look forward to getting to know each one of you and your precious children.

 Our motto this year is “Getting Back to Our Roots“.
This is a beautiful goal for us, as we seek to ground ourselves not only in our school roots, but most importantly in our faith roots, which are grounded in our Savior, Jesus Christ. I pledge to work and pray with you and your families while we seek to grow spiritually and academically with Jesus as the first and primary teacher of our school. He is the head of our school family. Our sign outside says, “We Are Family”.  I look forward to working together for the sake of faith, seeking academic excellence in our Catholic community. I promise to give all that I am to help us move forward spiritually, physically, and academically in a manner to develop the whole child.

Thank you for entrusting your children to us. You are always welcome here, so please stop by and say hello.

 In St. Leo and St. Mother Seton, I am

Gratefully yours,
Marissa Bagala
Principal of Sts. Leo-Seton Catholic School
