175th Anniversary Poetry Project

Poet-in-residence, and former Sem parent, teacher and Lower School admission director Dawn Leas visited classes throughout Lower and Upper School to share her love of poetry with the students during the 2018-19 academic year. She taught various poetry styles and helped the students write poems about Sem. A book of selected student poems, titled "Portal to the Past," was published in time for the school's 175th anniversary in September, 2019.
