  • Ayanni L. '23


    Favorite Seton Tradition 
    This tradition is a well-known one, but I love the Big Sister/Little Sister program. I loved the fact that I had someone to guide me through the school year. My big sister was really nice and it was even better knowing that she was on the tennis team with me.
     
    Extra-curricular Activities
    My freshman year, I decided to keep it small so the only activity i participated in was tennis. I loved everything about it. The bus trips, the wins, and the restaurants we went to. It was a great first experience or playing competitively. My teammates were also really nice on the first day of tryouts and we all got really close by the first month.
     
    Favorite Class
    My favorite class is Health. Even though we only had it for half a semester, my notebook was filled with notes from class. Every learning style was included which was amazing. I learned so many things from the class and was engaged in every class discussion.
     
    Favorite Teacher
    My favorite teacher is Señora Gerber. She’s nice, patient, with every student, and keeps us entertained all while keeping it on a professional level. She is also always there to help. I can’t think if a single time where I went in her room and she wasn’t there to help me better understand something.
     
    How have you been able to stay connected to your Seton Sisters while distance learning? 
    Yes! My friends from Seton and I talk to each other almost every day. Considering our situation, we always try to make plans with each other to get out of the house.
     
    Describe the Seton Spirit
    A huge part of “Seton Spirit” is cheering each other on. That tap on the shoulder or a yell across the gym from a fellow peer can make a huge difference in your confidence whether it’s a sport, art or robotics competition.
     
    One thing so far about distance learning that you have found yourself appreciating. 
    While I’m socially distanced I took it upon myself to meet some of the incoming freshmen. along the process, I made some new friends and reconnected with old ones. I appreciate my new friendships and I know it’ll feel good to know people when coming into a new environment.
     
    Best memory from your Seton experience so far

    Favorite Seton Tradition 
    My favorite Seton tradition is singing the alma mater after Mass. It lifts the energy and gives me a sense of Seton unity.
     
    Seton Extra-Curricular Activities
    Seton Scholars Club Ambassadors Club Seton Track and Field National Honors Society
     
    Favorite Class
    My favorite class was Public Speaking with Coach Brown. This was my favorite class because he helped me become more comfortable at Seton. Because I took this class freshman year, the silly skits and activities that I performed in front of my classmates actually helped me overcome my shyness and allowed me to make friends.
     
    Favorite Teacher
    My favorite teacher at Seton is Ms. Peake. I had Ms. Peake as a math teacher both freshman and sophomore year. Ms. Peake is my favorite teacher because she built my self confidence in my ability to do math. I came to her almost every day after school to understand problems I had trouble with. Her dedication was greatly appreciated.
     
    How have you been able to stay connected to your Seton Sisters while distance learning? 
    I still talk to my friends while distance learning.

    The Seton Spirit is contagious. The great energy is reciprocated through the halls, in the classrooms, and in the pep rallies.
     
    One thing so far about distance learning that you have found yourself appreciating. 
    I have found myself to appreciate teachers' office hours. In school, everyone was able to have one on one time with the teachers, if we were having trouble learning a concept. Now, most communication takes place through emails as it is hard to properly articulate problems that we are having.
     
    Best memory from your Seton experience so far.
    My best memory from my Seton experience is going to Marshall University with my track team. It was the last meet of indoor season and everyone PR'd.
  • Jordanne S. '21



    Favorite Seton Tradition
    One of my favorite Seton traditions occurs on Field Day. All of the four classes or different grade levels gather in the gymnasium waiting, in anticipation and excitement, for the signal to transition to different seating areas. This transition conveys our "growth" or "leveling up" to be ready to graduate out of Seton and taking on the world.
     
    Extra-curricular Activities
    Step Team and Tri-M.
     
    Favorite Class

Also, World History class influenced me to learn more about global history and to read about the news: local, domestic, and global.
     
    Favorite Teacher
    Ms. Smith is my favorite teacher because she makes an effort to have us, students, creating a conversation about and around religion. Her broad approach to these conversations conveys her trying to understand our perspective of religion and coming to an understanding of what we should do, as a Seton community, to help ourselves, our friends & family, and others.
     
    How have you been able to stay connected to your Seton Sisters while distance learning?

    One thing that I have found so appreciative about distance learning is that I am being flexible in prioritizing my time for when to attend the virtual session and what assignments to work on, all the while staying home and staying safe.
     
    Best memory from your Seton Experience
    One of my best memories at Seton so far was when I was chosen to play with Seton’s String Quartet as the 2nd violinist was the proudest moment in high school; I would be able to share my talent with a group of other talented people.

  • Kyndall J. '21



    Favorite Seton Tradition
    Field Day and Staff Christmas Show
     
    Extra-curricular Activities
    Black Student Union, Varsity Lacrosse, Varsity Soccer, Student Council, Scholars Program, Ambassadors, Girl Up, Society of Women Engineers (SWE)
     
    Favorite Class
    LEAD because each assignment is a new "challenge" and the feeling I get when I complete it is similar to winning a lacrosse/soccer game. The last assignment was to build a house and then equip it with a system that detects a fire, alerts the "people", and suppresses it. I didn't get to compete because of the virus but after many trials we completed it.
     
    Favorite Teacher
    I really can't choose one teacher. I feel like a great thing about Seton is that all of the teachers are invested in us as not just students but people who have lives outside of school. I can positively say that each one of my teachers has had an impact on me outside of schoolwork at least once during the past three years.
     
    How have you been able to stay connected to your Seton Sisters while distance learning? 
    Yes; via texts, facetime, and social media
     
    Describe the Seton Spirit
    Okay so the Seton sisterhood sounds like this big cliché, but I promise it's true. At Seton, no matter what "group" you're in, everyone cares about each other. Your sports, clubs, programs, and classes do not put a limit on the special connections you can make at Seton. When I think of the Seton sisterhood I picture this past year during soccer playoffs.  Our team was facing elimination against some really good teams and almost everyone in the school showed up to support. It was not just “the athletes” or the people “into sports”. It was girls from every area of the Seton community. And they didn't just show up once, they showed up to every game until it was over. 
     
    One thing so far about distance learning that you have found yourself appreciating. 
    Haha I like being able to choose when I have lunch.
     
    Best memory from your Seton experience so far.
    Freshman year during spirit week my class beat the senior class in tug of war for the "championship" and even though it was a small event in the whole competition it was still like really cool. Since it was the first spirit week we were basically the babies on campus and we took out the people who had been there forever.

    Mr. Flores because he is so energetic and always brings funny stories to the table.
     
    How have you been able to stay connected to your Seton Sisters while distance learning? 
    I have been emailing, calling, FaceTiming, and studying with my friends.
     
    Describe the Seton Spirit
    The Seton Spirit brings so much fun and loving energy that never stops.
     
    One thing so far about distance learning that you have found yourself appreciating. 
    I appreciate the opportunity to connect with my family more in this time of need and coming together as a family to pray more.
