    PTA Faculty & Staff Membership

    The role of the Seaholm Parent Teacher Association (PTA) is to build strong working and collaborative relationships among parents, teachers and administration, in support of our students. The PTA is a partnership between parents and educators who strive to enhance student learning and enrich the lives of our students in high school. A goal of the PTA for the 2020/2021 school year is to increase teacher membership and participation by more clearly defining and delivering on the relevancy of the PTA.

    PTA Direct Donation – aka Maple Money

    Your annual PTA Direct Donation or ‘Maple Money” supports a variety of enrichment grants awarded each year to our Seaholm teachers as well as school enhancement needs.  100% of these teacher grants are funded by your PTA Direct Donation and will directly benefit your student.  In addition to specific teacher grants, Direct Donations also support school enhancement needs identified by administration, department chairs and student leadership. 

    We suggest a donation of $75 for families with one student and $125 for families with multiple students.  Many families donate more that these suggested amounts.
