Dear SASEAS school families,

As we enter into the season of Advent, we prepare for the celebration of the birth of our Lord and Savior. With this in mind our students will be preparing as well, with three weeks until Christmas break, look for the many activities your children are doing here at school to prepare for the birth of Jesus.

One such Advent season tradition is ADOPT-A-FAMILY. Last year, our school families generously raised $5,130 to purchase and wrap Christmas gifts for 10 local families and 47 children! This Friday, the 8 th grade class will hold its exciting and impressive Cake Auction and Bake Sale to raise funds from the St. Andrew campus students. Our 5 th graders have been designing creative buttons, magnets, and new for this year, keychains for the Seton campus students to purchase. It is also an Out-of-Uniform day for at least a $1.00 donation. In the coming weeks, the 8 th grade class will then visit Kohl’s to personally select gifts for those in need, wrap the presents, and then deliver them.

We will have mass next week on Monday, December 9 th , at 9 am on both campuses in observance of the Feast of the Immaculate Conception. Please join us!

The junior high campus will be doing Advent Lessons and Carols December 11th, at 6:30 in the St Andrew Church. Dress attire for boys is black pants (or navy blue) and a white oxford shirt. Dress attire for girls is solid color skirt/capris and a blouse or a dress. This is always very prayerful and all are welcome to attend even if you do not have a junior high student.

I am pleased to announce that we will be holding a second parent night with Scott Ervin: The Kid Whisperer. The first session was amazing and I am happy that we are able to bring him back to briefly review what he talked about in the first session and then build on that with more skills. Thank you to our PTO who will be helping to cover the cost of bringing him back. Look for the date of his return to be announced in the coming weeks.
