Learning from our alums

December has been a month of reconnecting with Seabury alumni who have come back to share their stories of life after Seabury. After having been at Seabury for a long time now, it is always exciting to see former students and meet those who were at Seabury before my time. I love to hear the stories of where they have gone and what they have done since leaving our program.

Over the years, I have talked with and heard the stories of many of our alums, both recent grads who are still in high school and those who have gone on to colleges and careers. A number of themes have emerged from those conversations, themes that both validate the work that we are doing with our current students and that provide valuable information for parents regarding the benefit of the significant investment they are making in their child's Seabury education.

Math Night's coming!

Everyone is invited to Seabury's Third Annual Family Math Night, a not-to-miss free evening full of fun and challenging math games and activities for kids ages 4 through middle school.

This year's math night is coming up soon: Tuesday, Jan. 13, 6:30 p.m., at Brown’s Point Improvement Club, next to Brown's Point Lighthouse Park, 201 Ton-A-Wan-Da Ave NE, Tacoma, 98422.

Give to our kids

"I give to Seabury School because I've seen firsthand the impact it can have on a child's education."

That quote is from Broc Woodworth, Seabury class of 2001. He's a member of our Board of Trustees and has a successful career. He's one of our alumni who has been making regular contributions to Seabury's Annual Fund. We're a young school, but we now have alums in their 20s and early 30s with jobs. They can see the impact Seabury had on their lives and understand its importance in the lives of the children we serve today.

Joys and challenges

Any parent of a gifted kid knows that raising these children is both a joy and a challenge. Dealing with characteristics like perfectionism, endless negotiating, intensity, or emotions that are out of sync with intellectual development can make parenting uniquely challenging.

SENG Model Parent Groups are a place where parents of gifted children can gather to share stories, discuss strategies, and share insights as they read A Parent's Guide to Gifted Children, by James T. Webb, the pre-eminent guide to raising gifted children. SENG group facilitators participate in a rigorous training process led by trainers from the national SENG organization and guide parents in building a community of support and understanding.
