Principal's Message

    Determined Dolphin Family,

    I am humbled and honored! As the proud principal of the Castle for twelve years, you have blown me away! Last school year we said that our comeback would be greater than our setback and IT WAS! We have restored The Castle to greAtness! Sea Castle, The Beast of the East, is an "A" once again! Not only did we earn an “A” rating, we were the 3rd highest “A” of all Title I schools in BCPS! This accomplishment is a result of our entire family. The effort put forth by our scholars, families, educators, staff, administration and all stakeholders has resulted in this accomplishment and everyone should rightfully celebrate this victory!

    As we begin our 2022-2023 school year, we are determined to exceed all that we have accomplished. This will require the entire Dolphin family to continue to be invested in our scholars. Please continue to support our students in your designated role which has resulted in this magnificent achievement.  Parents, I encourage you to be proactive by participating in our parent nights, attending SAC meetings, volunteering and staying connected to your child's education by maintaining regular communication with their teachers. By continuing to stay invested in our scholars, we are building their confidence and determination to achieve their BEST. As a staff, we will continue to foster a growth mindset environment for students to do so. I am asking that not only parents but all stakeholders do likewise.

    Dolphin Family, WE ARE UNSTOPPABLE, UNBREAKABLE, UNSHAKEABLE…WE ARE THE CASTLE! Maintaining our achievement will not be easy. However, as we have proven, together, we are unstoppAble! In our pursuit of continued excellence, let us not lose sight that everything is possible with P.R.I.D.E! Persevere with Respect, Integrity and Discipline in Everything we do! 

    In the words of Og Mandino, "What you plant now, will harvest later." Let's continue to plant and instill greAtness in our scholars, Dolphins! Doing so ensures we will remain UNSTOPPABLE! 

    Educationally yours,


    Principal Rodriguez
