GET INVOLVED SCHOOL CALENDAR GIVE
FROM THE PRINCIPAL -APRIL 20th 2018

Dear SEA Families,
Our brilliant second graders are learning about Jackie Robinson, the first African American to play Major League Baseball. Honestly, he is one of the best role models of all time. When I was listening to the facts they learned in class this week, I was reminded of the author of the Last Lecture, Randy Pausch. Have you ever read this book? If not, go out this weekend and get it. Dr. Pausch was a computer science professor at Carnegie Mellon, who was diagnosed with a terminal cancer and decided to write a lecture about importance of overcoming obstacles and seizing every moment. In one chapter entitled, Don’t Complain, Just Work Harder, he talks about Jackie Robinson. He writes, “There is no better role model than Jackie Robinson. The message in his story was complaining does not work as a strategy. We all have finite time and energy. Any time we spend whining is unlikely to help us achieve our goals. And it won’t make us happier.” Jackie Robinson had monstrous challenges throughout his life. Yet, he rarely complained, and instead, found ways to achieve his goals, in spite of the obstacles. Sometimes we can get caught up in complaining about our lives. We need to fight with all our might to not give in to the downs, the challenges, or the complaints. We need to focus on the good, the strategies to get us where we want to be, and seize every moment. Thank you, Jackie Robinson and Randy Pausch for the reminder

This week the boys (grades 4-7) spent their morning taking the ERBs, our new standardized tests. I am proud of our students. Most were focused and took the time they needed to do their absolute best. I truly appreciate the boys going to bed earlier and believe it can only help our young learners. While the ERBs were taking place our 8th graders were grinding out their Capstone Paper, the intense research paper of their choice. Mr. Walsh takes on this project each year. I am grateful for his high standards so the boys understand the high level of expectations waiting for them in high school ELA classrooms!

SEA Spring Musical Production Week begins Monday! I am so excited for this musical and know our boys will nail this one! I overheard a scene the other day, and I was so impressed. Please come out and support our young actors. I never could have walked on stage during middle school. I am so tremendously proud of the boys who take this opportunity.

Off I run this weekend for a Padua soccer game in Virginia Beach. Why does Delaware play soccer in the spring? Never mind, that is for another Knightly News.

Enjoy,  Tricia
