The goal of Sem’s Community Service Program is to inspire and facilitate a giving spirit in each of you, so that reaching out to others and giving of one’s time and energy become a way of life.
Service Learning and Community Engagement are important concepts in the community service world. The premise is that it takes time, effort, and consistency to cultivate a giving spirit. By actively engaging with one or many organizations over the course of the school year, you can be a part of the wider Buffalo community. A lot of learning goes on, and before you know it, you will have accumulated service hours!
Everything you need to know about Sem’s program can be found on the “Community Service” tab on Edline’s homepage.
- Each student is expected to complete a minimum of 10 hours of service each year.
- All service hours are to be recorded online. One entry per project. Click on the Community Service tab on Edline to go to the Community Service Page and find the form.
- Students may participate in Sem organized projects or ones that you have discovered for yourself.
- All work that is voluntary and that assists others will be counted as community service hours.
- Projects completed during the summer will be counted toward that coming year’s goal.
- Hours will be tabulated throughout the year so that you can monitor your progress to the 10-hour per year goal. This information is found on the Community Service Page on Edline.
- Advisors will also be informed of their advisees’ hours.
- Community Service hours will be recorded on each student’s transcript at the end of the year.
Let’s get out there and make a difference!

SEM's Technology Office is open SCHOOL days from 7:30 am - 4 pm.
We are available by email off hours as well.
Before contacting Tech Support:
1. Try restarting the computer. Restarting will often fix technical glitches by cleaning out the computer's memory. If the computer is not responding and won't restart normally, you have to force it to turn off by holding down the power button for about 30 seconds. (You will lose any unsaved work.) Then turn it back on.
2. Ask a classmate for help with the problem. Chances are, if you ask three people, one of them will have had this same problem, and will know how to fix it.
For Service and Support:
Take your computer to the Tech Office if it is not working properly or is in need of repair. The Tech Office is located on the second floor down the left hallway. The office is open from 7:30am - 4:00pm during school days.
We are happy to help with any software or "how to" questions as well as any hardware issues or repair needs.
Tech support phone: 716.885.6780, ext. 222
To our Fabulous SEM Families,
Thank you to all who attended and facilitated the flurry of back to school activities.
WOW – these weeks of welcome have made it awesome to be back on Bidwell Parkway!
Please allow me to introduce myself, I am Ann Galbraith ’85, mom of Alex ’20 serving as your Parent Association president for the 2018-2019 school year. It is my pleasure to invite you to come back to Bidwell to “meet and greet” on Wednesday, October 24, 2018 at 7 PM in the Colby Room.
Parents are invited to attend this informational meeting where we will provide updates on activities that will be held throughout the year, as well as provide you with an opportunity to get to know your fellow families in a relaxed and welcoming atmosphere.
As members of the Buffalo Seminary community, we welcome your time, talent, and treasure in assisting the Parent Association. We strive to create fun, interactive, social, and productive opportunities at SEM. As we continue to foster a strong sense of community amongst the families, we hope you will join us in helping make SEM the special place that it is in our hearts, and in Buffalo.
Please consider getting involved in these future Parent Association supported events:
- SEM Quest: Friday, November 2, 2018, 7pm, 205 Bidwell Parkway
- Rose Dance: Saturday, February 9, 2019 PLACE TBA
- Mother-Daughter Brunch: Sunday, March 10, 2019, 20th Century Club
- Senior Strawberry Social: Monday, June 10, 2019, Magavern-Sutton Courtyard
Or, in service as a class ambassador, as we can always use assistance in communicating with students in each of the classes and with their families.
Thank you in advance for your commitment to our community.
All my best,
Ann Wiedenbeck Galbraith ’85, P’20
Parent Association President
