GET INVOLVED SCHOOL CALENDAR GIVE
FROM THE DESK OF THE PRINCIPAL
Dear SEA Families, 
Today we had our Thanksgiving Liturgy. Father Kirk put it best, “Take a minute to tell God one thing you are thankful for today; It is that simple.” So before the Turkey Bowl this afternoon, we asked the boys to take a moment to let God know what they are thankful for today. Today I am thankful for my family. I am thankful Drew is doing well and loves his college. I am thankful Haley is doing so well in academics at Padua. I am thankful for my husband who looked after our home, our kids and me all week while I was sick so I could go right to bed after work. I am certainly thankful for the health of my parents. Lastly, I am thankful for our students, especially our 5th graders who are being knighted this evening!  [Keep reading by clicking here.]

SPREAD the WORD for SEA ADMISSIONS
Some of the most effective marketing of SEA takes place when our current families 'like', 'share', 'retweet', and 'comment' on SEA social media posts and events with which they connect. As we enter our busy Admissions season, we appreciate any social media-savvy folks to help us get the word out about the special things happening at SEA.  Spread the word! We have Admission Testing for current year transfers or Fall 2018 TOMORROW, 11/18 at 9am
