FROM THE SEA PARENT ASSOCIATION
∝ BOOK DAY    We hope you got a chance to stop by the SEA Parents' Association table in the fieldhouse on Book Day!
We enjoyed meeting everyone! Check out 2017-2018 handout if you have not already done so. We hope you will give some thought to joining us in the planning or execution of one of our many events. We rely on you--our fellow SEA parents!

FAMILY PICNIC    The picnic following Book Day went very well. Thanks so much to Mark Thompson (Antonio '21)  Nancy Steckel (Adam '18), Maria Healy (TJ '23), Mo Leffler (Gavin '22), Grace Lawrence (Theo '22), Mr. Stump (6-3) and Mr. Borror (P.E. Teacher) for volunteering their time.

CLASSROOM PARTIES   We now have a Homeroom Mom in JK-1,K-1, 1-1, 2-1, 2-2, 3-1 & 3-2.  If you or your son's father (Homeroom Dads are great too!) would be willing to help figure out the details for the classroom parties that take place a few times a year, please reach out. All middle and upper form homerooms still need a homeroom parent. You can split the responsibility with someone, too.  Email us with your thoughts.
