Parent Forum with Billy Ward
Billy Ward is a licensed psychotherapist in New Jersey and has been teaching at Seton Hall Prep since 1998. His presentation will cover transitioning to high school, recognizing stress in your son and developing compassion, kindness, and faith in our boys.

Mr. Ward will be presenting to our high school boys on 9/20. We have scheduled the parent talk and the student talk back-to-back to make it easier for you to open a discussion with your son about the topics presented.

Mother's Covered Dish
Please join us for an evening of great food, fantastic shopping, and wonderful company as we celebrate together at the Annual Mothers' Covered Dish event! 

We ask that you prepare and bring a dish from the category assigned to your son's grade or you may simply pick something up at the store if you're short on time. Your dish should be ready to serve and we ask that you bring serving utensils. Keep it simple, no fuss needed! The evening is about getting together with friends, new and old, and enjoying one another's company. We hope you can make it!
