Message from the Principal
Welcome, Seaholm Families!
We look forward to your becoming members of our learning community, and we are eager to meet the myriad joys and challenges each school year brings.
Seaholm prides itself not only on offering you a longstanding tradition of academic excellence but also on providing you with a multitude of opportunities for engagement in the arts, athletics, and community service. Whether you are interested in renewable energy, debating at the national level, or managing a retail outfitter on campus, our curriculum extends well beyond the classroom walls.
We are proud of our dedicated efforts that reflect strong partnerships among students, staff, parents and community. For just one example, our Field Day food drive for Gleaners Community Food Bank in the fall is the largest donation they have received from a high school. Helping individuals and organizations in need is one of life’s lessons that you will find is a hallmark of Seaholm’s commitment to generosity, compassion and service.
So, again, welcome to your new school and make yourself at home. We are excited about the opportunity to enrich your lives academically, athletically, artistically and socially.
Mrs. Kyle Hall
