Nov. 12 - 16 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. 19-23  due to the Thanksgiving Break.  Don't forget to mark your calendars for the annual Santa's Workshop.  It will be held on Thursday, December 6, 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, Nov. 13, at 6:30 at SEAS.  All volunteers must be Virtus trained to help in the school.  This is a diocesan policy.  More information can be found in the SEAS Update.  Friday is a Spirit Dress Day.  Students may wear jeans and a SEAS spirit shirt.  We will be collecting items this week for STUFF THE BOX.   Donations will benefit Harbor House at Catholic Charities..  There will be boxes in the school lobby  for you to place your donations.  The items will be picked up on Friday morning.  For a list of needed items  please refer to the SEAS Update this week.
