Action needed for ALL students enrolled at SEAS for the 2022 - 2023 school year
The Hastings Bus Company is asking families with students in Grades K-8 to let them know if you would like to opt-out of receiving bus transportation for your children for the 2022-2023 school year. ALL students are assigned a bus route, so If your child will not be using the bus to get to and from school, please let them know by filling out this form by July 15, 2022.

Letting them know now will help them be more efficient in planning district transportation services, which means lower costs and fewer changes after the year starts.

PLEASE NOTE: If circumstances change, you can always change back!

HERE is the opt-out form for students in grades K-8

If you plan for your child to take the bus to and from school - no action is needed at this time.

A message from Father Matt
Father Matt wanted us to share a message with the SEAS School families:

To the students: I’m going to miss you munchkins…especially now that I will need to get a gym membership for all of the lost kickball, gaga ball, and lightning games! Thank you for all of the birthday and goodbye cards that you left me! God bless and see you some other time! :-)
To the parents: I’ve enjoyed belonging to the SEAS School (and Parish) with your family! All the time that Fr. Dave and I spend with the kids is just a reminder that it’s worth it to “waste” time with your children (time is precious)! And the best thing that you can do for your kids is to love God and love your spouse (if you’re married). God bless!

We thank Father Matt for three wonderful years of ministry at SEAS and wish him well in his new assignment!
Butterfly Garden Helpers Needed

Looking for a fun family activity for the summer?

Help take care of the butterfly garden and bushes in the front of the school.  

You can work when it is convenient for you and your family.

The dates listed are Mondays, but you can take care of the garden on any day of that week, watering and pulling weeds (except for the milkweed).

This work can go towards your volunteer hours for the next school year.
