FROM THE DESK OF THE PRINCIPAL
Dear SEA Families,
From Blessed Basil Moreau... “Take the resolution to have recourse to attentiveness, prayer, patience, and courage.
Isn’t this the perfect quote for the hectic days of May?  We all need attentiveness, prayer, patience, and courage right now. This week, my poor two children were left alone three nights in a row, fending for themselves at dinner time. Between my husband and me, we had to attend board meetings, soccer games, College Night, Barnes & Noble Night and Evening of the Arts. Not to mention that we are busy trying to help our children manage the enormous workload at the end of the year for high schools.  We know there are many families who had even more commitments than we did. Looking at this weekend, it doesn’t get any better. I guess the message is, hang in there.  With Drew having one foot out of the high school door and college freshman orientation fast-approaching, I try to keep reminding myself to appreciate these hectic moments.
Summer Reading Lists have been posted outside the login on our website [Academics>Summer 2017]. Feel free to buy your son's books since the list will not change. Summer Math, Supply Lists and our SEA Tutor List are not yet available.
Have a blessed weekend, full of attentiveness, prayer, patience and courage!
Fondly, Tricia

EVENING OF THE ARTS 2017
Congratulations to all Evening of the Arts participants for joining together to create a spectacular celebration of the Arts at SEA this past Wednesday. The evening featured instrumental performances from three bands, poetry readings and published poems, displays of fine art in multiple media, choral performances, a lobby video feature performances from Music Class, and an art installation from the religion classes in the form of a candle reflecting student thoughts on shining their light in the world. All aspects of the evening showed facets of the theme "Let It Shine". Arts achievement awards were presented to end the evening.'Bravo' and kudos to everyone involved in Evening of the Arts!
CURRENT PARENT PARTICIPATION
Thanks from the Development Office! There are six weeks left in the 2016-2017 Annual Fund campaign year, and our parent participation is growing!
