  • WHAT DO I NEED TO KNOW ABOUT THE SENIOR CLASS PHOTO?

    Each year the senior class has a GROUP PHOTO taken for the yearbook, At this time, a photo is also taken of the Diehards (Students who have attended SES since first grade or earlier). This photo is usually taken early in the school year (late September/early October). The Class of 2019 will take the Senor Class Photo and  the Diehards Photo on Monday, August 20. 

    The senior class photo has been taken at a variety of local locations over the years. Once a location is decided upon and a photographer is scheduled by the yearbook staff, the date of the photo shoot is added to the school calendar, and senior students and parents will be sent information via email regarding photo day details (location, any special outfit instructions (i.e. wear a certain color shirt, etc...). For the Class of 2019, the girls should wear a white dress or shirt and skirt and the boys should wear a white button down shirt and khaki bottoms.

    This is a special senior tradition that each class looks forward to each year!
Under the direction of Upper School English teacher Ms. Louise Kennedy, a creative and motivated group of students produce the new Sundial blog. Some may remember that in its original form, the Sundial was a literary magazine released at the end of the School year.  Now, thanks to the benefits of the internet, the SES community gets to share and enjoy literature and art by our students and staff twice a month. We will publish new submissions on the second and fourth week of each month via the eNews, and the entire collection is available here as well. Special thanks goes to Ms. Kennedy for keeping these students on task, and for encouraging them to share their talents and gifts.


Thank you for taking the time to read this publication. The Informant is a labor of love for the members of Saint Edward’s Social Justice Club. As affirmed in our mission statement, “Saint Edward’s Social Justice Club aims to inform and empower members of our school community about social justice concerns both big and small.”

To that end, it is our hope that this publication, which is now entirely written, edited and designed by Saint Edward’s students, will reach the hearts and minds of every member of the student body. Special thanks to the faculty members who make this publication possible: Sra. Galindo, Head of the World Language Department and our fearless faculty advisor, Mrs. Campione, Director of Digital Media and, of course, our administrators Mr. Wachter and Mr. Mersky who always fight for freedom of speech and opinion on this campus.
