Seaside PTA, a non-profit organization, supports many vital programs to help enrich your child’s educational experience and make learning fun. The programs include the school library, Adventures-In Art and Reflections art programs, reading programs, computer lab, Red Ribbon Week, field trips, assemblies, safety and emergency procedures, campus beautification, and classroom supplies just to name a few. Fundraising is required to make the budget for these activities, but we do try to keep them to a minimum. Participation in these fundraisers is optional.
Some families prefer to make tax-deductible donations to the Seaside PTA general fund. Any donations are accepted and greatly appreciated. (For your tax records, Seaside’s Tax ID # is 95-6207370).
Keep an eye out for upcoming details.
