FROM THE DESK OF THE PRINCIPAL

Dear SEA Families,
The Lenten season brings to mind many lessons for people.  For me, Lent can mean sacrifice (such as giving up all my favorite snacks) or it can mean finding ways to do more good throughout my day (e.g. volunteering more).
But this year, during Ash Wednesday Liturgy, perseverance came to my mind. The word persevere implies effort, hard work, determination and commitment, in spite of life’s difficulties or challenges.   [Click here to keep reading.]

FROM THE SWEENEY LIBRARY
SEA had a very successful Read Across America celebration on Thursday! The Lower Form students wore amazing hats to our 'green eggs & ham' breakfast hosted by Joe Cann and Kay Harmon. As always, Bill D’Amato did a fabulous job reading to the boys!  Reading buddies was a wonderful way to allow our older boys to help our young readers. Special thanks to Mrs. Ford, Mrs. Turner and Mrs. Perkins for their help preparing for the event. We would also like to thank Sam Truluck '17 for reprising his role (from the SEA Spring Musical 2016) as the Cat in the Hat. Just a reminder: Bookmarks for Rocky’s Reading Challenge are due on Monday,March 13th.
