Welcome to The SEED School of Washington, D.C. Parent Teacher Student Association!
Welcome to the SEED PTSA 2016 - 2017 school year. The PTSA would like to welcome back all of the returning SEED families, and introduce ourselves to the new SEED families!
The PTSA serves as the voice of the SEED parents and we are one of the liaisons between the SEED faculty and SEED parents. Through our many events and fundraisers, we are able to support our activities, provide each graduate with a monetary gift upon graduation, assist parents with supplies (when we are financially able), as well as partner with the SEED School with SEED events.
In order to continue the PTSA’s mission we need parent participation and involvement. It is essential to the growth and productivity of the PTSA that parents join and become active members!
Joining the PTSA has never been easier! We are happy to inform you that we now take credit/debit cards at the PTSA meetings and online. We are now in the middle of our Early Membership Drive. If you join the PTSA now, your will only pay twenty ($20.00) dollars! The regular fee of twenty-five ($25.00) resumes in September 2016.
Happy October SEED Family! This is going to be the best year ever!
We hope you are as excited as we are about the PTSA’s first fundraiser of the 2016-2017 calendar year! Yes…we are talking about the 2nd Annual Masquerade/Costume Ball!
We stepped up our game and added a costume component to the Masquerade Ball this year. Scholars will be encouraged to design and create their own appropriate homemade costumes, with prizes going to the zaniest, most creative, funniest, and loudest costume. Of course, store bought costumes are welcome as well, but we want to ensure that every scholar can attend and participate. There will be games and contests that the Scholars can compete in such as a Pie Eating Contest, An Apple Grabbing Contest, Guess What’s in the Squishy, Horrible, Slimy, Gross Box , Could You Survive a Horror Movie Haunted House and Could You Survive a Zombie Teacher Apocalypse Quizzes, A Michael Jackson Thriller Group Dance Contest, A Wrap you Mommy Contest, and much, much more!
We are truly off to a great year with volunteers! We had a record number (12) of parents and family members volunteering for the September Dean’s Incentive, Cookies and Cream on Thursday, October 29, 2016. Scholars who did not receive any referrals or detentions from Sunday, September 25th through Thursday, September 29th, and had at least $150 Kickboard Dollars (HS) and $350 Kickboard Dollars (MS) were treated to ice cream with all the toppings and the famous SEED Homemade Chocolate Chip Cookies! The aroma was heavenly and the scholars thoroughly enjoyed the treat! For those scholars who did not participate, there is another event next month. Remember…no referrals and no detentions!! We anticipate a larger number of scholars participating in that event. The Volunteers were: Angelita Buckmam, Delllonn Buckman, Lauren Fraser, Aaliyah Greene, Phyllis Greene, Regina Jackson, Ayanna McConney, Jamia Morrow, Artina Nelson, Michelle Shaffer and Willette Taylor. Thank you parents and family! Your presence was much appreciated and noted!

I am extremely busy with family, work, friends and just life. However, I know I can squeeze in just two volunteer hours to help the school! After these two hours, that's it--I'm through for the year!
