The Sundial

Under the direction of the upper school English department, 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 our faculty for keeping these students on task, and for encouraging them to share their talents and gifts.

The Informant

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 and who always fight for freedom of speech and opinion on this campus.

    Graveyard Shift
    by Jensen Manelski 

    Humston has a legend as old as the dirt beneath it. 

    The legend lies in strange places, they’ll tell you; the alleyway next to the old movie theater, graffitied, grey foam stuffing bit out from its red-and-gold trim seats; the private school a little ways from 43rd, unkempt in its state of disuse, its second floor caving in just a bit too far for comfort; the forest in the Jacksons’ backyard, not that anyone could get there - the Jacksons’ haven’t been seen in town since ‘48, but they’ve got to be around, really, ‘cause the lights are still on at nighttime. They’ll tell you that the legend lies in the smoke coming from the chimney of the Inn, a bed-and-breakfast run by a mother and her daughter, two strange little women with the same hooked nose and the same pair of bifocals. They’ll tell you that the legend lies in sundown, in the game of kick-the-can you really shouldn’t be out playing this late, young lady. They’ll tell you that the legend lies right outside your door, but it won’t get you, just as long as you’re in bed having taken your syrup by nine o’clock sharp, and I mean on the money, kid - no playtime, we’ll be home by eleven. They’ll tell you, later, that it was never there at all, and you’ll believe them, ‘cause you’re thirteen now, and you don’t believe in boogeymen at thirteen, no sir, and just because you rush home on your silver bike after cheer practice doesn’t mean you do. You’ve cut the pink bell off of the handle because it’s an awful lot of noise for a silent street, not because the silence begins to scare you after dark. You’re cautious, that’s all. There are stranger things you have to be watching out for, lying in even stranger places. [click headline to read entire story].

    SUNDIAL SHARES: A Short Story by Katie Alerte and Art by Morgan Moss

    Katie Alerte
    Based on the prompt: You are a time traveler and have been stuck in the Roman Empire for years. On the Ides of march of 44 BC after Caesar has been assassinated, you hear someone say, “This is so sad Alexa play Despacito”

    I have to talk to him.
    It’s stupid, it breaks protocol, and I might be killed if I do so, but I have to.
    A crowd has gathered in the town square and people yell and cheer. Some happy at the death of their ruler and others terrified as to what it means for the fate of the empire. I should be among them, trying to blend in as best as a can, but the sound of those words, that stupid meme that always made me cringe when I heard it in the hallways at school, makes my hair stand on end.

    SUNDIAL SHARES: "Winter in the Village" by Clara Martin

    Katie Alerte
    I was born in a snowstorm, or so my mother tells me. My first birthday happened during one of the largest blizzards New York City had ever seen. Every birthday after, I would fall asleep to the sounds of police horse hooves and city miscellania, holding onto the hope of a snowstorm when I woke.
