    Dear School Office Colleagues,

    Welcome to October! Thank you for activating your school offices so efficiently to serve all of your school community! Just a reminder, Eugenia serves as administrative assistant and tracks key OCS databases including Frontline Applitrack, Aesop, and the CSED. If you have questions, surprises or concerns at any time, please email Eugenia Geisel at eugenia.geisel@seattlearch.org

    October's Goal: Update the CSED!
    This month we are are setting a goal of working with you all to clean up your personnel lists in the CSED. Please update your staff lists, and at a minimum please indicate Teachers of Religion. This is going to be important as we move forward with our Christ in the Classroom program Level 1 Catechetical Certification. Having updated information in your school's CSED will also help as we continue to transition to the new mycatholicschool.org website, as well as mailings such as this one and other communication channels. If you have any questions about how to do so, please contact Eugenia so she can assist you.
