FROM THE DESK OF THE PRINCIPAL

Dear SEA Families,
I don’t know if you are college basketball fans, but I sure am.
Of course, my favorites are Villanova, Duke and Syracuse. I can never turn down watching a good basketball game. I love the intensity and the unpredictability of wins and losses. This week was no exception with several huge upsets. Nova lost to Marquette, while Kansas and Kentucky, all top five teams, also ended in disappointment on the road.  Did you know this marks only the third time since 1948 when three top teams took a loss on the same day?

JOIN US ON THURSDAY, 2/23 at 6:30pm
One of Beau Biden's favorite things to do as Attorney General was to talk to kids about online safety. Over the course of 8 years, Beau spoke in scores of schools, to over 25k students. The Beau Biden Foundation for the Protection of Children proudly continues his work. By partnering with the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, the Foundation is able to bring NCMEC’s NetSmartz® Workshop suite of programs in to Delaware’s schools. NetSmartz® Workshop covers good digital citizenship, online safety, and the dangers of cyber bullying. The Foundation can address these issues with age appropriate videos, games, lessons and tip sheets. The Foundation’s presentation for parents addresses these same issues, helps parents understand what their kids do online, and addresses ways to foster healthy conversations with children about digital safety. Please attend this important presentation at SEA on Thursday, February 23rd at 6:30pm. Bring guests!
