FROM THE DIRECTOR OF THE LOWER FORM

Dear Academy Families,
One of the many things I love about working in a Catholic school is to be able to celebrate the season of Advent. I started Lower Form’s Monday Meeting with a simple question. What are we preparing to celebrate this month? I was so impressed with how many students shouted Jesus’ birthday. I mean elves had already visited their classrooms that morning so Santa was definitely on their minds! Yet, their first thought was still about Jesus.
We discussed how Advent is a season of preparing. We prepare our homes of course, but we also have to take a moment to prepare our hearts. Many students commented on the Advent wreaths that can be found in several places throughout our building. Those four candles in the wreath hold such great significance. Although I have been a Catholic school student or teacher my entire life, I still need to take time each Advent to review the meaning of each candle. In case you’re like me, here is a refresher from dynamiccatholic.com.   [Keep reading here.]

9 DAYS LEFT TO BUY YOUR TICKETS SO HURRY!
Don't forget that our Parent's Association is hosting the incredibly talented Harlem Wizards in our Fieldhouse on Saturday, 12/14. They would like to extend a BIG 'thank you' to those that have already purchased tickets to our game vs. the SEA staff! We have already sold 300 tickets!!!  We have now opened sales to alumni, friends, and families outside of SEA. If you have not yet purchased tickets to come out and cheer for your favorite staff member, we recommend doing so this week by clicking here

Stage Crew, report at 5:45 PM. The show will begin directly after the Lower Form Christmas Concert or approximately 6:30. Break a leg!
All Singers  Our holiday concerts are not too far away! An Important rehearsal for all singers is taking place tomorrow (12/6) 3:00-4:15pm. We have a run through of the concert just as it will be on 12/19, NEXT THURSDAY, 12/12 from 3:00-4:30. Parent supervisors welcome and needed at both of these practices.
Delaware Art Museum Winter Festival
Members representing all of our choirs will sing carols and songs from our SEA concert on Saturday, December 14th at 11:15 until about 11:45. This event is open to the public and we encourage our friends and family to come out, have a listen, and visit the stalls of wonderful bespoke items on display. This is an invitational event and we are honored that this is our third year of being part of the Winter Festival. Any singers who have not turned in a permission slip, please do so or have parents email Ms. DeHart if you will be attending. We also could use Parent Supervisors for this event and an extra pair of hands setting up the keyboard and amp.

DO YOU HAVE ANY OF THESE PET ITEMS?  
FACULTY & STAFF CHRISTMAS FUND
For many 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 checks (payable to SEA with 'Christmas Fund' in the memo line) to the attention of Bill D’Amato by 12pm on Thursday, December 19th. Thank you!
