Friday Letter

Dear Parents,

Finally, this weekend is the time for our annual auction--perhaps the best possible way to have fun while supporting our students and teachers.  There will be great food, drinks, dancing, antics (mostly appropriate), and a host of tantalizing auction items.  The event is sold out, but if you didn't get a ticket, you can still bid on the silent auction items from home: https://Seabury2020.givesmart.com.  Remember that this year's theme--Under Construction!--means you can dress comfortably for the event.  I will look forward to seeing you there!

Come out for the varsity basketball games on Tuesday night and stick around after the final game to recognize all of our senior athletes for the year.  Help us celebrate these talented students before they head to college!  Congratulations to Sofia Gonzales for being named LJWorld Athlete of the Week.  And congratulations to both the boys and girls middle school basketball teams for having a great showing at their season-end tournaments.  The girls beat Pembroke Hill to take the girls middle school title!

Every year, our middle school performers produce a show for younger audiences and then embark on a tour of area schools.  Ms. Jennifer Glenn and her cast will be presenting The Wizard of Oz for Seabury students and parents on Monday night in the Commons and will take the show on the road to Corpus Christi, several performances at the Lawrence Arts Center, and a final performance for our own Seabury students.  We hope you can come out to enjoy our terrific young actors and enjoy this rendition of Kansas history (according to people who don't live in Kansas).  It will be a lot of fun!

Congratulations to Katie Eckert for receiving a 1 rating at KSHSAA regional piano competition.  She is off to State competition in a week!

Casino Night is next weekend, and BSAP is still looking for intrepid parent volunteers.  If you are interested, click here.

Fr. Rob talked to the students in chapel about finding God in our relationships with other people.  To quote Victor Hugo, "To love another person is to see the face of God."

Between Headmaster's Holiday and yesterday's so-called snow day, I am looking forward to having two full weeks of classes ahead.  No doubt the students will agree with me.

Yours respectfully,

Dr. Schawang
