FROM THE DESK OF THE PRINCIPAL
Dear SEA Families, 
On Monday, December 10th at 7pm, SEA is hosting an Internet Safety Session with speaker Robert Irwin, Special Investigator for the DE Department of Justice. We live in a digital world, with technology even in the hands of small children. As parents and caregivers, we need to be armed with the knowledge of what lives within the Internet that could impact our children. I believe this will be one of the most difficult, but rewarding presentations we have ever offered parents. I highly recommend all parents to attend, regardless of your child’s age. We will be doing follow-up sessions all throughout the month of January with the students. We are lucky here at Saint Edmond’s Academy. We have two teachers already...  [Finish reading here.]

BASEBALL TRAVEL TEAM
Training and practice have a meaningful impact on the development of a player. Games are great and we all enjoy them.  However, there are not enough repetitions in games to develop the player to be a
better player and an athlete that can play at the next level. Practice time is when improvement occurs. Click here for our philosophy. Click here for our schedule and here to sign up.
SEA PERFORMING ARTS NEWS

to Jack Maister, John Lovett, Ian Gosse, and Eli Martin for competing in the DE Junior All-State Chorus event. We are proud of them for giving their all at a tough audition. High five and well done to Eli Martin who was chosen to be one of the 27 tenors in the state of Delaware for this honor.

 SHOP ON AMAZON AND SEA GETS PAID

If you're a regular Amazon shopper, then you know about Amazon Smile.  Sometimes our mobile devices don't default to it, so take a close look and be sure to select SEA as your Amazon Smile beneficiary. It's such an easy way to help SEA collect a few extra dollars. Like many of our smaller fundraisers, this really does add it.  Thanks to Karyn Cortez (Brandon '19) for the reminder! We haven't run this notice in a while.
