At noon release another leaf;
One from our trees, one far away.
Retard the sun with gentle mist;
Enchant the land with amethyst.

Ahh… Robert Frost. If you’re in North America, then Fall is setting in, and it’s time for the pumpkin craze and cranberry jellies. It’s also time to find out who were the finalists in the Summer Story Contest!

In this 2016 Fall Bulletin, enjoy the entries from the top four finalists. The contest required that students take a novel they’re reading in their high school year, and craft a story around one of the characters, either in the original time or in a modern setting.

The judges were very pleased to see some fine entries, and some very clever story telling. If you enjoy them, check out the online versions of each piece on this issue and leave a comment for the author!

We also have the winners of our first Art Challenge, where students were invited to create a piece of art around the Scriptural theme of Elijah being charioted into Heaven on winds of flame.
Again, we were impressed at some of the artistic maturity, and stylistic creativity that students provided.

This month we showcase two Seton students, and we bring you an article from our College Partner Program debunking the 5 myths surrounding college majors. Speaking of debunking, Bob Wiesner, Seton Counselor and Contest Judge, reminds us all of our ongoing need to keep our hearts and minds on the truth.

Hoping that you have a great Fall Quarter,

Dominic de Souza
