Dear Seacrest Families,
As I watch our Seacrest girls prepare for the State Championship game, I am reminded of my first year on campus in 2013. My daughter Sophia and many of her current teammates were in third grade and the Varsity Volleyball girls were their heroes. They dreamed of following in the footsteps of the 2013 State Champions.
And they have followed, but not just on the volleyball court. They all remember the time the “older girls” spent with them. High fives and hugs after games, taking time to volley with them at recess and instilling important values of perseverance, kindness, and hard work. The star of the team, Valerie Gonzalez, lived “The Seacrest Difference” and understood the importance of role models for our younger students and aspiring student athletes.
Valerie continued to give back to the growth of our girls as an alum. She returned to the team last year as an assistant coach and worked side by side with the girls, who years earlier looked up to her as a person and athlete. Our current team of volleyball players are the new role models and do so without hesitation, because they were taught and understand the impact they can have on the community. They recognize that volleyball and sports are not just a game, but a test of character. That is the “Seacrest Difference.” As a father who witnessed the growth and change of roles I am grateful. As the Head of School, I am beyond proud.
The “Seacrest Difference” and the strength and care of our community sets us apart from other institutions. We pay attention to the intangibles and learning that happens inside and outside of the classroom. We hold our values high and work each day to improve ourselves and those around us.
I invite you to make your contribution to The Seacrest Fund, which will support our school as we move forward this year and beyond. Your contribution can be sent via the link below but I also invite you to sit down to have a conversation with me about your gift and the impact it has.
Thank you for your support,
