FROM THE DESK OF THE PRINCIPAL
Dear Academy Families,
We are so excited for the boys to walk through the doors. This year, as a community, we are focusing on the theme of hope. The faculty and staff spent the last two days reflecting, learning, and discussing our own hopes and how we can apply that to the time we spend with the students.

CHAPERONING or VOLUNTEERING?
 
Saint Edmond's Academy adheres to the guidelines set forth by the Diocese of Wilmington's Policy For the Sake of God's Children which requires background clearances for all school volunteers; these clearances must be renewed every five years. This process can now be accomplished electronically through Hyden & Associates. The form can be found on the school's website under Athletics>Forms>Coaches Clearance Process or on the welcome page once you log into your 'MY SEA' account. The $35 fee is payable by credit card. Clearances are mandated for any volunteer work or for field trip chaperones, assisting with sports teams. If you have a current clearance (dated 2012 or later) from your home parish or from another school, we will gladly accept a copy.  If you have any questions about this process, or to determine if your clearance is current, please contact Sharon Scarpitti.
DR. FINKELSTEIN SPEAKING SOON
 
We welcome back Dr. Harris Finkelstein to speak to SEA parents. We've always hosted him for what has come to be known as the 'Sixth Grade Parent Meeting' each year but we've added another engagement with him as well. A significant part of Dr. Finkelstein's practice involves developing techniques to help address issues of boys and anxiety. Please join us THIS WEDNESDAY, August 31st and again on Wednesday, October 5th,7pm, in the Rollins Center.
