    Dear Seaholm Family,

    Welcome Back! A new school year is upon us adn it is our goal to help make it a great one! That's why I and many others donate to the Birmingham Education Foundation (BEF).

    THe BEF supports our schools by working with the community to support teachers' Great Ideas.  These grants support projects that inspire and motivate kids throughout the district in arts, academics, athletics and technology.

    I hope you'll join us by donating to the BEF this year. If every family in our district gave just $25, we would raise $115,000 in additional funding. This helps our teachers provide innovative experiences and new opportunities to students in every school in the district.

    Last year teachers at Seaholm were granted $19,452.41.  With your help, I know that we can provide even greater support this year! Click here for more information.


    Patrick Liebler

    BEF President & parent of 3 BPS students
