Senior School History Teacher Travels to South Korea for Professional Development
This past July, I traveled to South Korea with a group of American educators with the generous support of the Korean War Legacy Foundation and Sewickley Academy. This professional development connected me to my curriculum and past enrichment, which continually puts me in the learning seat, prepares me to contextualize historical events for students, and sets me up to share global perspectives.
Students, faculty, staff, and Academy families gave generously to the Spirit of Giving Food Drive, which benefited St. Vincent de Paul’s Good Samaritan Food Pantry.
This year, the Academy raised $671.42 to purchase 35 12-pound turkeys from Safran's Supermarket in Sewickley at wholesale price. The balance was donated to help purchase perishable items for families in need. Donations from Sewickley Academy will make a difference in the lives of 45 families; the community’s generosity will carry their food needs throughout the month of December.
Lower School student counsel representatives, Middle School student council representatives, and Senior School students worked hard to pack and unpack three vans full of food.
Thank you to all who donated and helped make this event a success!
