Families who are registered members of their parish and who offer a minimum of $400 in parish support annually through their Sunday envelopes are eligible for the special in-region tuition rate. If you are not a member of our supporting parishes (St. Barnabas, Cure of Ars’, St. Frances de Chantal and St. Raphael) you must get a letter from your parish stating you contribute a minimum of $400 annually. All eligible families must have their status defined by May 31, 2019. Those establishing in-region status after this date would not be eligible for the tuition discount until the 2020 / 2021 school year.


The Clifford Family would like to thank all of SEAS for your support and participation in our Avengers Raffle last week. You help raise $1,000 for the Stephen A Clifford Memorial Fund, Inc.! ...and that's an amazing donation!  It was awesome seeing the kids and faculty wearing Avengers and other heroes shirts on Friday!  We gave away movie tickets and T-shirts and toys.  An award scholarship will be given to an 8th grader at Class Night next month, but our fund also donates to area Catholic High Schools, Rutgers University Marching Band and the Catholic Center for Students at Rutgers.  THANK YOU for helping to keep our Stephen alive at SEAS! 

God Bless you all!

Mrs. Clifford
