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 November SEED Parents and Friends!
The first PTSA fundraiser for the 2016-2016 School Year, “The 2nd Annual PTSA Masquerade Costume Ball” was a rousing success! SEED Scholars participated in a Michale Jackson “Thriller” Dance Competition; Wrap the Mommy; Guess What’s in theSquishy, Horrible, Slimy, Gross Box; a Costume Contest; and Can you Survive a Horror House and Teacher Zombie Apocalypse Quiz. Good fun was had by all of theScholars and Parents that attended and the Ball was the topic of conversation for many days!
