Nov. 13 - 17 Newsletter

 During this time of the year we reflect on the many blessings that have been bestowed on our families during the past year.  We have much to be thankful for. There will be NO CLASSES the week of Nov. 20-24 due to the Thanksgiving Break.  Please look for a progress report in your child's red folder on Friday.  It will indicate areas where your child still needs practice.  These skills will be on the next report card.  The second quarter ends before Christmas break.  Don't forget to mark your calendars for the annual Santa's Workshop.  It will be held on Thursday, December 7, from 1-3 p.m.  Students will be doing crafts  and decorating  gingerbread houses.  We will need  parent helpers.  More information will be sent home after the Thanksgiving break. If you haven't taken the Virtus training there will be a class on Tuesday evening.  More information can be found in the SEAS Update.  There will be a Virtual Snack Sale on Thursday.  The proceeds provide after school snacks for the children in Guaymas, Mexico.  Friday is a Spirit Dress Day.  Students may wear a SEAS spirit shirt and jeans.
