Sri Sathya Sai Educare (SSSE) Updates

SSSE Yearbook Photo Shoot and P3/Sandwich Seva on Sunday, Mar 12th, 2023 starting at 9:30 AM.

Important SSSE Reminders:

1. Easwaramma Day Celebrations – SAVE THE DATE for May 6th 2023 (Saturday). Kids have begun practice activities for various cultural demonstrations of what they have been learning on Swami's Educare values. Please make sure to participate in the practice sessions, assist wherever you can, and encourage your kids to practice as much as possible.

2. SSSE Seva Day and Photo Shoot Day – SAVE THE DATE for March 12th, 2023 (Sunday). Kids are required to mandatorily participate in the Seva activity as they cherish the joy of participating in making food for those in need. This is at the regular center timings on Sunday, so there should be no calendar conflict for anyone. We also request the parents to participate and join the seva activity. We have Photo Shoot for the yearbook on the same day. Kids are required to come in appropriate dress code (white and white) as instructed by their gurus. This will really help the Yearbook team a lot. 

3. Yearbook Inputs – As an annual tradition, we publish the yearbook that is compiled by the yearbook team throughout the year. We are seeking SSSE kids inputs to the yearbook. If they have great articles on SSSE core values, poems, their understanding of Swami's quotes, or stories/messages that they want to convey, please encourage them to write them, and submit it to our yearbook team. Please remember to include the kid's full name, SSSE group number, and a title for their submission. All submissions can be sent to or submitted to their gurus. For very young kids such as story group and group 1, if they have a piece of artwork, you can send a picture or submit the hardcopy at our center to the gurus. All submissions are due by March 20th !

If you are comfortable submitting it directly to google drive, here is the link, but please make sure the details are very clear.

4. Sunday March 19th – Please mark your calendar(Change in date) to join our initiative for Sai Harmonious Homes. This is a special satsang designed for parents to ask any questions on how to engage their kids in our spiritual upbringing. This workshop cum satsang is strongly encouraged for SSSE Parents.

Sai Ram!
