Remember the girls

By Head of School Sandi Wollum

It happens this time of year every year. Parents come to my office to inquire about enrollment for their son. He is bored in school, getting in trouble often, having difficulty sitting still, and generally frustrated. We talk about why Seabury might benefit him. We would challenge him and give him a group of peers he could relate to. We would place him with teachers who understand his needs and would be patient and positive about his incessant questions and his need to move.

Often these parents also have a daughter. When I ask whether they might also be looking for a placement for her, I am often met with this response: "Oh no, not her."

First grade science star

Seabury's Science Fair was on March 19 and we were blown away by the awesome projects. Starting a few days later, people regionwide and statewide were blown away by a Seabury first grader's amazing project!

Judah Friedman took "Conductors" to both the 2015 South South Regional Science Fair and the 58th Annual Science and Engineering Fair. He's got a pile of awards to show for it, including a blue ribbon and a first place trophy.  

At the regional science fair, held March 21  at Pacific Lutheran University, Judah's project won third place in his grade level. There were 498 students from 74 public and private schools in four counties at that fair.

Get daffy with us

Do you love a parade? We do. We especially love the Junior Daffodil Parade. It's all kids, dogs and middle school bands.

We've entered Seabury in it this year and since we're celebrating our 25th anniversary, we'd love it if anybody who's ever been a Seabury kid or a Seabury family member would come march with us!

The day is this Saturday, April 18. The parade is at 10 a.m. in Tacoma's Proctor District. The whole route is only about four short blocks. Plus, the weather is supposed to be sunny!! We really don't have to gather until about 10:40, they've told us. Our position is F4. It looks on the map like our gathering spot is the west end of the Mason Middle School track.
