FROM THE DESK OF THE PRINCIPAL
Dear SEA Families, 
Remember Andy Rooney from 60 Minutes? He used to always give his own recap of the show at the end. One segment had to do with the holidays, and he ended with a great quote: “One of the most glorious messes in the world is the mess created in the living room on Christmas day. Don’t clean it up too quickly.” This is so difficult for me! As my kids unwrap, I am cleaning up behind them…I just can’t help myself. But it is so true. Why the rush to clean up? Usually we have quite a large crowd at our Christmas Eve celebration- this year we have 16 more than our usual 60+. It will be a total mess! But it is important to remember how the Christmas season is soaked in the mess, the love, the chaos, and the laughter with family and friends. So let all let the mess begin… [Finish reading here.]
2018 FACULTY/STAFF GIFT COLLECTION 
For 30+ years, it has been customary for SEA families (if they desire) to make a contribution to the Faculty & Staff Christmas Fund which is distributed among all of the members of the faculty & staff. Many families find this option attractive because it eliminates the need to purchase individual gifts. You may contribute any amount to this fund, and there is certainly no obligation to participate. If you do take part, please send cash or a check (payable to SEA with 'Christmas Fund' in the memo line) to the attention of Bridgid Rubio via the homeroom teacher by 10am this Tuesday, 12/18.
 SO HAPPY FOR THE RESPONSE!
Thank you to those who were able to attend our Internet Safety Evening this past Monday. We were glad to be able to provide this opportunity to share our partnership with the BBF with you in this format. Hearing some of the conversations afterward was wonderful. If you'd like to learn more, check out some of the BBF resources on their website. Also useful is Common Sense Media, which the speaker discussed in his presentation.
A very special 'Thank You' to Andrew Ellis and Kim Oswinkle for helping coordinate this evening and for diving in to become true partners with this important organization. On Monday, Mr. Ellis will lead a safety presentation with the students in grades 6-8 while Mrs. Oswinkle presents to grades 4 and 5.

BASEBALL TRAVEL TEAM
Training and practice have a meaningful impact on the development of a player. Games are great and we all enjoy them.  However, there are not enough repetitions in games to develop the player to be a
better player and an athlete that can play at the next level. Practice time is when improvement occurs. Click here for our philosophy. Click here for our schedule and here to sign up.
