GET INVOLVED SCHOOL CALENDAR GIVE
FROM THE DESK OF THE PRINCIPAL
Dear SEA Families, 
I absolutely love this time of year. Not the weather, but the NCAA basketball tournament!
I have two favorite teams--Duke and Nova. Now let me explain…my niece is a senior at Duke and so, as an athlete, she has us all on the band wagon. Villanova is a bit more obvious as a local university and with a Salesianum alumni playing for the team. One of my favorite quotes from Coach ‘K’ Krzyzewski: “One of the biggest lessons I have learned in my life is that failure is a natural result of breaking out of your comfort zone.” Hearing this makes me look at failure through two lenses--we can think of failure as a positive moment or a negative moment. If my children fail because they did not make the effort, well that is a negative moment. I need to address it as a parent. But if my children fail because they struggled on something that took them out of their comfort zone, then I need to look through a more positive lens? So as your son fails, and he will fail during his lifetime, maybe we need to take a moment to ask the why. And, if your son fails because he tried something new, well this is something to respect and even challenge him to continue through the failure. Believe me, I hate to watch my children fail.
I want to jump in and save them every single time. I am a bit of a ‘Momma Bear’ at times. But, when failure is due to his or her lack of effort, or due to them stepping out of their comfort zone to try something new, I think it is necessary for me to let them fail. How else will they learn that they can endure, understand resiliency, or find their grit? Character is built through life lessons, not perfect moments.

I want to thank our Student Council for coordinating an extra ‘Spirit Week’ this past week. My favorite addition was the ‘Paper Airplane Competition’ and watching older boys and younger boys cheer each other on and pat each other on the back. It was quite special.

May your weekend be full of laughter and love,
Tricia

LENTEN REFLECTION
"In the poor and outcast we see Christ’s face; by loving and helping the poor, we love and serve Christ. Our efforts are also directed to ending violations of human dignity, discrimination and abuse in the world, for these are so often the cause of destitution. When power, luxury and money become idols, they take priority over the need for a fair distribution of wealth. Our consciences thus need to be converted to justice, equality, simplicity and sharing."
--Pope Francis, Lenten Message 2014
CONVEY YOUR 2018-2019 INTENTIONS
If you plan to re-enroll your son for the 2018-2019 school year, but have not yet returned his contract, please do so as soon as possible. It's important for us to know the number of students for the upcoming school year so we can determine class sizes, course offerings, hiring needs, etc. Please contact us with questions. We appreciate your prompt response!
SEA ACADEMIC BOOT CAMP RETURNS
After a hugely successful inaugural year, SEA Academic Boot Camp returns again this summer. There are week-long sessions this August open to both boys and girls in rising 3rd through rising 9th grade. Sign up your son or daughter now and spread the word! Click here to see the dates for each offering.  A sample schedule is linked to each group as well so you can really get a feel for what a day at the 2nd Annual SEA Boot Camp 2018 looks like!

UNIFORM CHANGES OVER SOON

SEA students will return from Easter Vacation in their warmer weather uniforms. So, if you're not sure if your son's clothes from the fall still fit, why not find out?  Please bring in your son's outgrown uniform items if they're still in fairly decent shape.  Stop by the Lancer Closet to stock up any time our Main Office is open (7:30am-3:30pm).  If you have access to the building by way of play practice or Extended Day keycard, do some shopping off hours, too. 
Please leave a check or cash in the basket. This is one of the easiest ways to help our Parents' Association raise funds. SEA Handbooks (Lower Form)
(Middle & Upper Form) contain our uniform guidelines.
