Some of the Special Events celebrated during the 2012-2013 school year are listed below...
Heritage Luncheon Week
October 15, 2012 - October 19, 2012
Each year, Seacrest opens its doors for the annual Heritage Luncheon Week. Each family brings a dish representative of their family's heritage to share at this multicultural event celebrating our national and ethnic diversity. The Heritage Luncheon has a clear purpose as it is part of our Global Education Program. This is a very special day for our students so, if you can attend only a limited number of "during the workday" events, this one is not to be missed!
October 27, 2012
The annual Stingray Golf Tournament is an opportunity for our community of golfers to enjoy a good round of golf while sharing good company, food, and prizes. While having fun our participants help raise money for the Seacrest Country Day School Athletic Program. The money is used to continue enhancing our teams which now include track, soccer, cross country, baseball, basketball, volleyball, swimming, softball, golf, and tennis.
Red Ribbon Week
October 23, 2012 - October 31, 2012

Annual Halloween/Costume Parade for Grades PK-5th
October 31, 2012
This is a favorite day for students and parents alike. Children in grades Prekindergarten through Fifth Grade dress in costumes (you may even catch a teacher, too) and have a parade while High School students may view the activities and Middle School students enjoy a treat. The Lower School Parade is followed by a fifth grade sing-along in the gymnasium.
Veterans Day Flag Ceremony
November (Veterans Day is November 11, 2012)
It is a Seacrest tradition that the third grade students lead Flag Ceremony for Veterans Day. We invite our families to bring friends or family members who are veterans to this special Flag Ceremony so that we can recognize their gifts to our country.
Salvation Army Canned Food Drive
November 1, 2012 - November 16, 2012
Our assistance makes it possible for the Salvation Army to feed the hungry in Collier County at Thanksgiving, Christmas, and throughout the coming year. The Seacrest community has always taken care of those in need, and our participation makes this drive a success with the number of canned goods donated by students. Participation in the Salvation Army Canned Food Drive is a Seacrest tradition.
Harvest Hay Day
November 3, 2012
This Seacrest Tradition was started in the Fall of 2000. You and your family won't want to miss this afternoon of good old-fashioned fun! Enjoy a traditional fall festival which includes an outstanding cook-out on the deck, bounce house, face painting, crafts for all ages, and games. This is a fabulous day for parents and children alike-a chance to gather and visit with old friends, meet new friends, and enjoy the camaraderie that is so much a part of the Seacrest Difference.Stingray Golf Tournament
Holiday Toy Drive
December 3, 2012 - December 17, 2012
Each December, our Seacrest community collects toys for those less fortunate. For many years, in partnership with the East Naples Fire Department, we have collected toys for local children. Last year the East Naples Fire Department said, "You don't know how well you have done: Seacrest is the biggest contributor in the county."
Gala for Treasures
January 19, 2013
Seacrest School's Gala for Treasures (the treasures of course refer to our children!) is our annual auction. All proceeds benefit the school's substantial scholarship program. Approximately 30% of our families receive need-based financial aid the total of which grows every year! Creating a community of learners based on academic excellence, not limited by financial constraints, is an integral part of the Seacrest philosophy.
Grandparents' and Special Friends' Day
February 14, 2013
Each year Seacrest hosts Grandparents' and Special Friends' Day. Since its inception in 1988, this special day continues to be one of the highlights of the school year. Students invite their Grandparents' and Special Friends' to come and spend part of their school day with them so that they can share the joy and creative learning that takes place here at Seacrest. Parents, students, teachers, and staff work together to make this a day to remember for our visitors.
Scholastic Book Fair

Each year the library holds a Book Fair. Many wonderful volunteers work throughout the week as each class visits the Book Fair and the children love the chance to browse and purchase books. All proceeds from the Book Fair are returned to the Seacrest library.
