The Nitty Gritty: The Seabury STAR Auction is now only two weeks away. Families should all have received invitations in Friday Folders or by mail. Please return your ticket purchase/meal selection forms as soon as possible!

A limited number of *Wish Tickets* are still available. Remember — the auction committee will only sell 50 of these $100 *Wish Tickets* before the auction. The winning ticket (drawn at the start of the live auction March 6, 2010) entitles the holder to one live auction item of his or her choice!

We are nearing our procurement goal for the auction, but still have a little ways to go — make sure to get your final donations turned in to either campus as soon as possible. I have a big stack of procurement forms at the Middle School if you need more.

We’re also working on topping off the two M.S. theme baskets: “Camping” and “Family Game Night.” Drop off your donations any time during the school day, or send them in with your student.

Thank you for all of your help!! (Hint: scroll to the bottom for the sneak peek of our auction project).

English: Students wrapped up week 9 in “1,100 Words” with a test Friday. If you’re feeling brave, ask your student to give you a quick vocabulary quiz. Impresario, extortion, bigot, vexatious and virulent were all discussed and defined this week.

Science: Students continue to work on projects for the rapidly approaching science fair.

Make sure to mark your calendars for Thursday, March 4.

There are going to be some pretty amazing projects this year, and I would highly encourage you to sign your child up for the South Sound Regional Science Fair. The Regionals are held at Pacific Lutheran University every year, and it’s a great chance for your child to see what other students his/her age, younger, and older are working on and get experience presenting projects and advocating for themselves. We’d love to have a strong showing from Seabury at Regionals this year, so I’ll be talking to the students and encouraging them too!

Auction project sneak peek: Shh, don’t tell anyone we showed you.
