FROM THE DESK OF THE PRINCIPAL
Happy Friday, SEA Families!
This week my daughter’s senior portraits arrived. I know I am her mom (and as such- not very objective) but looking at her beautiful portrait took my breath away. I had to sit down and take in the moment. How did this happen? I remember thinking when my children were little (and probably driving me crazy) things like how 'tired' I was and "if only they were bigger" Well, I am standing here telling you to change your thinking if this happens to you. Because with the prospect of no children in my house next year, I am overwhelmed with sadness.  What do we do when we don't parent all day and night?  [Finish reading here.]
DATES CHANGED ON OUR CALENDAR
The last day of school is Thursday, June 6th.  There is no school on Wednesday, June 5th or Friday, June 7th. This date is correct on the web calendar but was listed incorrectly on the abbreviated calendar we provided.  Here is the updated shortened 2018-2019 calendar.  As always, we ask that you check our live web calendar (no log-in necessary!) at stedmondsacademy.org weekly.  We do tend to post Tag Days here and FB when announced as well.
