GET INVOLVED SCHOOL CALENDAR GIVE
FROM THE DESK OF THE PRINCIPAL
Dear SEA Families, 
I struggled writing this weekly note. My heart is heavy as I watch the horrific school shooting in Florida. I watch mothers, fathers, friends painfully scream into the cameras for real change in our country. I don’t know about you, but I am angry, frustrated, and sad. Children have to be our top priority in everything we do moving forward. I wish I had a solution. But I do know the solution needs to be more than lockdown drills and arming teachers with weapons. All I can say to you as a SEA parent is that we love your sons and will do our absolute best to protect...  [Click here to finish.]
LENTEN REFLECTION
"How should we respond to the invitation to conversion that Jesus addresses to us in this time of Lent? How can there be a serious change in our life? First of all, we must open our hearts to the penetrating call that comes to us from the Liturgy. The time of preparation for Easter is a providential gift from the Lord and a precious opportunity to draw closer to Him, turning inward to listen to His promptings deep within.”
--St. John Paul II

THINGS that GO BUMP in the NIGHT
Believe it or not, we are looking ahead (way ahead) to our next theatrical endeavor. Plans are being made for a short play based on local ghost stories to be presented at the SEA Halloween Spooktacular in October. Any interested 5th, 6th or 7th grader is welcome to audition on March 9th during Enrichment ('E' Day). It is a non-singing play. Why are these auditions so early? Because to be ready in October, cast members will have to be available two days in August (8/20 & 8/21) for rehearsals. Parents may be making vacation plans and would need to plan around these two dates if their son was cast. More information can be obtained from Ms. DeHart. Students should let Ms. DeHart know if they plan to audition.
